Need My MoneyNow – 2016 National Champion

The newest superstar to our sport came in to this race with unbelievable stat lines and he didn’t disappoint. 40 wins in his last 50 races you just don't see everyday. To be able to run down the defending National Champion Husker Magic at the wire was something that will be talked about for a very long time. This is a once in a generation greyhound without question.

Gulf Greyhound Park can take pride that they helped to make Money what he is today.  Even though the track is now closed because of in my opinion ridiculous politics, Texas had a huge part in this accomplishment. The Champ now heads with half brother Seldom Told to Jacksonville, where they will certainly find even more success. Congrats to Need My MoneyNow and all of his connections on this historic feat.
