#GreyhoundDerby2020 Kennel Visit: Robert Holt

Robert Holt is based in North Yorkshire and currently trains four greyhounds. It was when Trickys Dumbo came into his hands that Robert was really put on the map. In this four part interview, we learn more about Robert, his super fast greyhound and a big priced youngster he is hoping will come to hand when it matters.

Part 1 – Tricky Baloo

Tricky Baloo is priced at 250/1 for the Star Sports Greyhound Derby. A gorgeous, big dog, he’s taken a while to come to hand but hopefully this February 2018 boy will now start to shine at Nottingham.

Part 2 – Trickys Dumbo

Robert Holt’s star greyhound, Trickys Dumbo, is 33/1 ante post for the Star Sports Greyhound Derby. Here, Robert tells us all about his journey so far with the dog including why we haven’t seen him in action since September.
