2000 Greyhound Hall of Fame Inductee
K’s Flak with one of his many trainers Don Cuddy.
A red fawn son of Slaney Record and Dublin Red, Hi There was whelped in 1952. His racing career looked promising when he won Ireland’s 435-yard National Sprint and then was victorious at the 525-yard Wembley Spring Cup in England.
But while training for the English Derby, Hi There went lame. It was a new beginning for the Greyhound, who was retired to stud. He became one of the greatest sires in Ireland, with most Irish lines descending from him.
Like Hall of Famers Mixed Harmony and Tell You Why*, Hi There produced three outstanding sons that continued his bloodline through the generations. Crazy Parachute, Prairie Flash and Printer’s Prince were best known for their offspring. Prairie Flash produced the well-known imports Sunbow*, Air Patrol*, Monalee Wonder* and Monalee Flybolt*. Crazy Parachute sired Monalee Champion who then produced Share Profit*, Tullig Ramble and Linda’s Champion. Printer’s Prince produced Newdown Heather, Yellow Printer and Dillard*.
Others greats out of Hi There included The Grand Friday*, Buffalo Bill, Mad Era and Westpark Hi Light.
