2020 Peter Mosman Opal - Lilly Banner Barry Gibbons
In 2021, the race had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 lockdown in Sydney. It wasn't lost however and instead of its regular July timeslot, the race was scheduled for October.
There were several chances according to punters after the heats but when the final rolled around, it was an upset win for Light And Lily, trained by Jordan Tweddle, giving him his first Group 1 victory, on the day of his 42nd birthday.
In was another upset win in 2022 when the Craig Chappelow-trained Embrace took out the Peter Mosman Opal.
Embrace gave Chappelow - whose family have been in greyhound racing for almost a century - his maiden Group 1 success.
The closest he had previously come to winning a Group 1 was back in 2013 when his greyhound Frosty Vintage finished fourth to Belfast Johnny in the Vic Peters Classic.
