2015 Greyhound Hall of Fame Inductee









With a streak of five major 3/8th mile stake race victories at three different tracks, Granny garnered the Flashy Sir Award as the best distance Greyhound and was named Captain of the 1998 All-America Team.  Few Greyhounds in the entire history of the sport could match Granny’s mid-distance stake record in 1998.

Named in honor of the mother of owner Floyd L. Gibson, Sr, Granny was a red brindle born out of Trojan Episode and Miss Athena in December of 1994.  Racing for the Robert Feathers Kennel in Colorado in 1997, Granny captured the Timberline Stake at Mile High Kennel Club, becoming the first greyhound in history to win back-to-back Timberline stakes when the next year she captured her second victory by over nine lengths.

In 1998, she was victorious at the Mid-Winter Distance Championship and the Interstate Derby at Interstate Kennel Club, the 64th Annual $100,000 Wonderland Derby in Boston and the $60,000 American Derby at Lincoln.

The next year, at age four, Granny won the 678-yard Cloverleaf Inaugural by eight lengths, one of the four victories in five starts she accomplished before an ankle injury forced her into retirement in 1999.  Her career statistics include seven 3/8th stake victories and a 72-27-21-20 record in 201 starts.
