A VERY interesting book landed in the post box last week. It came from my great mate, Floyd Amphlett, editor of the Greyhound Star in England. Floyd is a great, great guy. He’s been hands-on as a kennel boy in a big time kennel in England, but these days produces the monthly magazine, the Greyhound Star. He’s a greyhound breeding fanatic. He’s also best mates with a guy called Nick Savva, and there are few better dog men throughout the world than Nick. The book that arrived at home last week is entitled “SAVVA” and it has been written by Floyd. In it, Floyd details Nick’s life and the many, many great gallopers he has trained in the decades he has been in England, moving there as a young boy from Cyprus. Champions like Westmead Hawk (twice an English Derby winner), Toms The Best, Larkhill Jo, Staplers Jo, Westmead Chick, Phantom Flash, Sonic Flight, Flashy Sir, etc., all household names back in England and Ireland, and now found regularly within Aussie pedigrees everywhere.

Refund (less 10% nil pups)

Floyd has done a great job of highlighting these and the other many top flight dogs to have raced from Westmead Kennels in England. Nick is “god-like” wherever he goes on a racetrack in England and Ireland. He’s that good. The book goes through his start in greyhound racing, his great champions, great friends and kennel clients, his training, rearing, feeding methods, etc. etc. But what fascinated me most is his insight into greyhound breeding after 40-plus years, and what he has to say is enlightening. He has never bred more than five litters a year, and generally the number is more like three or four. He says the winning formula is an understanding of breeding and bloodlines, combined with a system for producing and rearing pups to the highest possible standard. Savva says: “Looking back, the biggest mistake I made over the years was in my choice of stud dogs.” “I used many inferior sires in the early days.” “Of course, I didn’t deliberately choose bad sires. It came about

$1,100 Natural, AI FROZEN SEMEN AVAILABLE

because when we first started out we couldn’t make the kennel pay on its own.” “I decided to stand a few stud dogs to help pay the bills and felt morally obliged to use them on my own bitches.” “Although they all produced open race winners, with the benefit of hindsight they could not be considered great successes at stud.” Nick says unproven sires must be judged on a number of criteria, but he says pure sprinters and out and out marathon dogs don’t generally make it at stud. He says from his own experience, dogs that stayed at least 550 yards (500m), have become the better stud dogs. “I have also noticed that dogs that seem to be specialists on just one track seldom seem to make it,” he said in his book. “I think the same rule applies to potential brood bitches.” “If you think about it, how can a greyhound that refuses to give his or her best on all tracks be completely honest?” He also gave two instances of what he feels has helped his own

THE PAST, THE PRESENT & THE FUTURE

GRAEME JOSE 0418 545 380

great racers become stud dog successes. “My dogs are not given any substance to help enhance their performance. (And) I’m not interested in training any dog that needs ‘incentives’ to keep it chasing. “I believe there are many dogs that failed at stud, not because they didn’t throw speed.” “They failed because their offspring weren’t genuine enough to utilize that speed to the best of their ability.” The debate over the importance of a stud dog, compared to the dam, is one of the oldest in breeding. Nick says, “Some people try to suggest that breeding is all about the brood bitch, but if that were true, how do the legendary sires emerge?” “I have seen great variation in litters, both in temperament and speed, to which the only variable factor was the sire.” “Even my very best brood bitches have failed if the sire was bad enough.” “Physically they appeared fine, they were just slow.” “A good sire is vital. It is a lesson that I wish I had learned years ago.” Nick says he never uses an unproven sire. Another lesson he wishes he had learned years ago. Savva, however, will use his own unproven dogs when they go to stud because he is fully aware of their temperament. Of brood bitches, he says, “I wouldn’t consider using a brood bitch if I didn’t like her temperament.” “In most cases, I tend to stick to those who have shown the most ability on the track.” He says in the early days he bred with bitches he had not trained, and even though they were good race bitches, it was often a disaster.” He admits though he did not pick the right sires for them. “I am horrified that I continued to persevere with a second or third litter with the same brood bitch when the first litter was clearly nowhere near good enough.”

REFUND LESS 10% NIL PUPS

He admits failure noticeably with his English Oaks winner, Westmead Chick, saying the sire choice was probably behind it.” “The only other theory that I have heard is that she might have been too big to make a brood (32kgs).” “Apparently big bitches don’t have great records as broods, though since there aren’t so many of them, it’s a difficult one to prove.” He emphasised the importance of honesty in his bitches through the example of Westmead Flight. “Although Flight did not have top class pace, she was 100% genuine, absolutely fanatical.” Westmead Flight is an important brood bitch in many pedigrees the world over, as the dam of Larkhill Jo and Sonic Flight (damsire of Bekim Bale and Heston Bale). He says a brood bitch being mated for the first time should go to a proven sire.” “I know young stud dogs have to start somewhere, but use them on proven bitches so you can determine if they are worth persevering with.” Nick says a “minor indiscretion” is not something that would concern him about a stud dog. He tried to buy Lively Band, sensationally barred from an English Derby final after such an indiscretion. He says his champion brood bitch, Mega Delight (dam of Westmead Hawk) put pace into her offspring, but “clearly the sires must have dominated in terms of racing distance”. He says he has no problems with repeat matings. “With the benefit of hindsight, what single piece of advice would have been most beneficial to me when I started out as a breeder?” “Probably not to use unproven stud dogs!” “I got away with it a few times, but I ruined many more litters along the way.” He says his best brood bitches either stayed six bends (a distance) or would have done, had they not been hampered by injury. - courtesy www.pedigreesbydesign.com
