GBGB Awards - Charles Russell Speechlys 2017 Owners of the Year

The K.S.S. Syndicate are the Charles Russell Speechlys 2017 Owners of the Year, the third time they have finished top of the table, having won in both 2014 and 2015 as well. They beat last year’s winners the Conlon Family by 118 points with a total of 537 points.

The Syndicate’s highest scorer was the triple Category One winner King Elvis (pictured above winning the British Bred Derby at Towcester) with 237 points, accrued by winning the Produce Stakes at Swindon, the RPGTV Henlow Derby and the Servoca Nursing and Care British Bred Derby at Towcester. In addition, he also landed the Gentleman George Curtis Trafalgar Cup at Monmore and reached the final of the Romford Puppy Cup, finishing second to fellow Newcomer of the Year nominee Roxholme Nidge. Litter sister Queen Anna accrued 47 points, with the National Sprint at Nottingham being her most notable success.

Last year’s Wimbledon Puppy Derby runner up King Kid continued to perform at the highest level; reaching the final of the Sussex Cup, the Olympic, Kent Derby (runner up) and the British Breeders Stakes, while the winner at Wimbledon, King Eden, won nine Open Races and picked up 28 points. King Turbo also reached two Category One finals.

The Syndicate includes Brendan Keogh, Simon Senyk and Baz Knight and are based in Kent, where their dogs are trained by Liz McNair and her husband Rab. All the above greyhounds were bred there by the Syndicate, who as well as well as being major players on the Open Race circuit, are also becoming a major force in British breeding.
