BARCIA BALE (Go Wild Teddy x Princess Bale) was a brilliant Group 1 winner and multiple track record holder that had his career cut short when he injured a hock after winning 13 of his 14 career starts. As a race dog Barcia Bale had it all, explosive box speed able to win from any box but also a huge motor and great field sense giving him the ability to run down opposition. A sure sign of a top class greyhound is breaking a track record, Barcia Bale broke 2 in his first 3 starts and then went close to breaking records every win after that. At start number 10 came Barcia Bale’s finest moment winning the Group 1 Maturity Classic at The Meadows. Unfortunately for connections Barcia Bale’s career was cut short when he broke a hock in training however it was a blessing for breeders when they decided to send him to stud instead of trying to bring him back to race. He has certainly not disappointed at stud producing Group 1 Melbourne Cup winning superstar Dyna Double One in his first crop and countless other group stars like Dyna Maddie, Keune, Fuelish and Winsome Prince.
GOLDEN GOAL is without doubt one of the best bred bitches in Australia at the moment. A litter sister to group winners Fully Advanced and the freakish Joshua and Just Tripping she is also a daughter of Okay Supreme the sister of Group 1 winner and super stud dog Velocette. Golden Goal’s litter was a ridiculously talented group that produced 81 wins and $344,000 in prize money. Golden Goal was a very handy chaser herself who ran excellent time on the track with best times including 25.30s Warrnambool 450m, 25.49s Ballarat 450m and 22.64s Geelong 400m. Her first litter (to Magic Sprite) have broken in with excellent reports and have continued to improve through pre-training. It won’t be long before they will be making debuts on the race track.
The mating of Golden Goal to Barcia Bale is a match made in heaven dripping with group winners on every line. The combination should provide pups with explosive early speed, strength and determination that like the ancestors before them have the qualities to compete and win at the very top level.
