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 Sprint 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 NSW winners over the years have been Acclaim Star (1979), Fast Sapphire (1980), Winifred Bale (1983), and Rapid Journey (1998).
In 2014 the Doreen Drynan-trained Chica Destacada won the NSW title, before heading to Perth and capturing the National title.
In 2019 before he would go on to win the Million Dollar Chase Grand Final, the Frank Hurst-trained Good Odds Harada took out the NSW title. He too headed to Cannington in Perth, but just came up short of capturing NSW's first National title since Chica Destacada, finishing second to local star Premium Share.
