Irish Greyhound Derby First Round Results & Video Replays

The Irish Greyhound Derby first round started in Shelbourne Park on Thursday night and we have the video highlights  of all heats. There was a host of great races and big crowds enjoyed all the action.

The big talking point on Saturday night concerned the performance of Ante-post favourite Droopys Nidge. Even though he won his heat, the time of 29.95 was considered a lacklustre performance for the Derby winner hopeful. Trainer (and last year’s winning trainer) Robert Gleeson when asked said he was not worried and predicts a much better performance next week for the dog as he settles in to the 6 weeks of the event.

Meanwhile trainer Pat Buckley had every reason to be thrilled as he completed a heat treble over the two opening nights with three dogs owned by the syndicate comprising of Javier Jarne, Mike Davis & Paddy McElligot.

Sadly for everyone involved Boylesport Hero, owned by sponsor John Boyle was injured and forced to retire from racing.

The Trap Draw for the second round was streamed live on and will be available each week live from Shelbourne Park Greyhound Stadium via the Talking Dogs section of the site.

The second round will be on Thursday & Saturday of this week with the stadium opening at 6.30pm each night. Racing can also be watched live on Barking Buzz – the IGB App available for both Android and IPhone.
