Eight-times Group 1 winner and the first greyhound to win in excess of $1m in prizemoney, Fernando Bale, produced his first winner as a Sire after Oshkosh Erny Vee defeated his kennelmate, Oshkosh Expert, at Geelong on March 24.
Fittingly, Fernando's first winner was prepared by Andrea Dailly, who was the trainer of the superstar throughout his illustrious career.
In the coming months, some of the best bred pups by Fernando Bale will soon hit the tracks and stud-master Paul Westerveld said it was exciting times ahead.
"He has had some really nice bitches and we are very confident that Fernando Bale will leave an indelible mark on the Australian breeding scene," said Westerveld.
