On behalf of the Directors & Staff of the GBOTA, we extend our deepest sympathies to the Finn family and friends on the sad passing on one of the greatest greyhound racing icons of all-time, Mr. John Finn.
Mr. Finn’s contribution and success in the greyhound racing industry will be remembered for an eternity, having put the polish on some of the sport’s most talented chasers. He’s both inspired and aided an array of participants from all aspects of greyhound breeding and training, to which we are truly grateful for.
Having notched up countless group victories throughout his training career, some of his most notable chaser’s including NSW Greyhound of The Year winners Jessica Casey and Irinka Barbie, as well as 1985 National Derby hero Rapid Supreme, three-time aged classic winner in 2001 Winsome Dollars, champion matron Mink Mitten, History Lesson and more recently, Zipping Orlando, Zipping Kyrgios, Blue Moon Rising, Zipping Vanessa, Zipping Remus & Poco Dorado.
Vale Mr. John Finn.
