HISTORY: In the early 1930’s “Prof” Anderson enjoyed instant success in the greyhound industry with the strength he showed winning the Sapling Stake three-deep, at the first meet he had ever attended in Selden, Kansas. FLYING PRINCESS, from the same litter went on to win the St. Petersburg Inaugural in 1934. In 1939 Anderson raised a littler which would, in years to come, prove to have two of the best brood matrons in the industry, MY HANDY and HANDY JUDY. In 1941 Anderson was again very strong in the Fall Meet, winning the Derby Purse with SUNDAY, the Fall Futurity with HELSINKI and the Fall Sapling with SIR OGLALA. “Prof” Anderson was also responsible for raising the amazing miracle litter which raced for Keith Dillon. The KC BYERS-MY HANDY “miracle litter’ contained greyhounds like NORTH AMERICAN and PRIME FACTOR.
