I had a bit of a browse in an Australian portal called FastTrack, where I found some info about Okay Super (whom we have now renamed Zen) in addition to what is already known i.e. his date of birth – 8th July 2009.
I found out that his breeder was one Robert Campbell, his trainer one Peter Keegan and his owner one Michael Abbott. I am assuming it must have been the latter gentleman who shipped him off to Macau in 2011 after just 3 races with no great glory, so I suppose I should be thanking him in everyone’s name for the horrific life Zen has led for all the years since at the Canidrome.
What really made my blood boil was reading that his status is recorded as ‘retired’. Fine sort of ‘retirement’ that has been, 7 years at the Macau Canidrome!
The greyhound racing industry really is entirely devoid of any kind of transparency or honesty, whether intellectual or otherwise.
Thanks to Isobel Deeley for the translation
