Greyhound Clubs Australia conduct the National Sprint and Distance Championships annually. State heats and Finals are staged in each State. The venue for Grand Finals is rotated around the country, with Perth hosting the 2019 Nationals.
The NSW Distance Championship is held annually at Wentworth Park, and naturally, considering the prestige of the event, it has produced some smart winners over the years.
Some of the previous winners of the event are: Dotie Wilson (1975), Ibrox Park (1997), and Smart Valentino (2013).
A year after her sister Poco Dorado won the NSW Distance Championship Final, Veloce Nero repeated the dose in 2019, defeating Kanzan, and another Veloce Nero sibling Blue Moon Rising. Fourth was Poco Dorado, with 2017 NSW winner Ebby Ripper fifth.
