Greyhound of the Month
March 2013 Greyhound of the Month
Unbeaten in eight starts to the end of March Ostapchuk is the March Greyhound of the Month.
By Pure Octane from the race winning bitch Yorklea Beauty, Ostapchuk was bred by the Chucky Syndicate and is owned by the Bumper Sticker Syndicate. Trained in Palmerston North by Lisa Ahern Ostapchuk qualified impressively at Hatrick Raceway towards the end of January before beginning his winning spree at Hatrick on February 6th with a massive 6 ½ length win over 305 metres, and the winning hasn't stopped with a further four middle distance wins during February and three impressive March wins including a 7 length 457 metre win at Manawatu Raceway.
Yorklea Beauty won 7 of only 20 raceday starts before moving into the ‘matron's paddock' where her first litter by Pure Octane has left Ostapchuk (8 wins), Blairly Alive (1 start for 1 placing), Bumpa Sticker (3 from 3), Gypsy Brad, One Way Paeroa (2 placings from 4 starts), Rene Ranger (6 wins) and Got Value (2 wins). Yorklea Beauty's next litter is by Collision, so there should be more winners coming over the next few years for Yorklea Beauty.
