The recent passing of Surgeon closed the chapter on one of the most controversial races in greyhound racing history: The 2008 Melbourne Cup.

This Saturday sees the running of the Greyhounds WA Young Stars Classic Final at Cannington. Four greyhounds are representing the Chris Halse kennels for this Group 3 race, including rising star Chips and Trains. We caught up with Kennel Foreman Luke Townsend during the week and met the greyhound that is racing for a very worthy cause.
