Young owners Bryan and Naomi Sykes are on the verge of a very exciting ride with juvenile sprinter Jebrynah.
The siblings are just 22 and 20 years of age, they have been brought up with greyhounds around them all of their life. Generations of family have carried a passion for the breed and it is now that may have found their most promising pup yet.
On Thursday night Jebrynah claimed his 10th win from just 14 career starts, in some of those defeating some of sports more high profile sprinters.
“It’s the result of a lifetime’s work for the family. We bred him and we bred his mother (Jebrynah Glory),” explained Bryan.
“Our entire family, mum, dad and our grandparents have had greyhounds. It’s always been an interest for me growing up.”
Like many stars of the sport, Jebrynah showed a high level of talent from a young age. He is trained by Rocky Crisafi who has been a long time friend of the Sykes family.
“When Rocky came out of retirement we gave him Jebrynah to train. We knew he had good ability once he broke in, but now he is starting to realise his potential.”
