No doubt, it's a sensation not only for the small greyhound community on the European continent, but also where greyhound racing comes from. Read the articles about the Czech greyhound which will compete in the IRISH GREYHOUND DERBY 2010 at Shelbourne Park, Dublin:
150 in Irish Derby field - including Czech raider
"CZECH Republic tracker Fenomen Co Co is a confirmed starter for the Ladbrokes Irish Derby which commences at Shelbourne Park on Thursday.
Fenomen Co Co
turned up at Shelbourne on Saturday night for a pre racing trial and he covered the trip in 29.03 sec.
As one of the star performers on the continental racing scene, the Czech dog has to be treated seriously when one considers the way fellow continental tracker Lyreen Mover performed in the Wimbledon classic."

CZECH STAR CHASES DERBY GLORY
"Star Czech Republic tracker Fenomen Co Co has checked in at Shelbourne Park and will be a surprise challenger for the Ladbrokes.com Irish Derby this week.
There had been some doubt over the past few days regarding his whereabouts but he turned up at Shelbourne on Saturday evening and clocked a satisfactory 29.03 in a 525 yards trial.
Owner Vaclav Placek
had been in contact with Declan Carey earlier in the week but nothing had been heard in the meantime. However the mystery was solved on Saturday and now the dog has been confirmed a starter in the classic.
Fenomen Co Co
is a February ’07 son of Australian bred Tee Gee Special
and Cikorka Co Co
, a bitch by US sire Rugged Coast out of the Irish bitch Merry Song. The dog actually had a trial around Tralee in December 2009 when clocking 29.09 but he has been one of the top performers on the Continent for the past two years. He has won the 2009 European Stayers and European Championship and this year he was the Continental Classic winner as well as the Masters.
The presence of a European star means that the Derby field will include trackers from America, England, Ireland and Continental Europe.
Latest news on the Derby entry is that there are now 150 names in the book."
