Graeme Bate

This is a video I shot for the Catching Pen in 2009 with my good mate the legendary Graeme Bate. Besides the winners and awards mentioned in the story. Graeme was judged AGRA Trainer of the Year in 2009, 2011 and 2013. He also trained GCA Hall of Famer and Greyhound of the Year Xylia Allen, star stayer Irma Bale and speed demon, super sire Barcia Bale. Plus, a host of other top liners after that year. Will always be one of the best if not the best.
