Force is with Purtill and Skywalker

CONGRATS to Paddy Purtill, of Ballydonoghue, on the selection of Skywalker Puma as 2012 Track Greyhound of the Year. Paddy was the breeder of Skywalker Puma, which brilliantly won the 2012 Irish Derby and is now likely to be aimed at the Easter Cup
Congrats also to Abbeyfeale trainer, Jerry Griffin, on the selection of Future Boy as Stayer of the Year. It might have taken Future Boy fifteen races to get his first victory, but, by golly, he fairly went on the rampage after that. However, he won't be seen racing in Ireland again, as he has been sold to a wealthy sheikh for private racing in Saudi Arabia.
Funny place for him to end up, is it not?
