Tony Duke’s set up in the 70’s.
Don McMillian – Bought a few good pups from him
Howard Gray– I remember buying an Ungwilla Lad x Top Em All pup off Tony Duke many moons ago Top Em All a sister to Zoom Top from a later mating. Unfortunately the pup didn’t reach the heights of her parents winning only a few races before I sold her for breeding.

Shane Flower– He turn over some pups
June Whyte– Stayed with the Dukes while writing ‘Care and Training of the Australian Greyhound’. Still exchange Christmas cards with Tony’s ex-wife, Margaret.
Howard Gray– June Whyte Tony Duke also helped Tony Welfare and Des Saint set up their stud up at Cockatoo Valley, think he might have helped them secure stud dogs Meteor Moss, Which Silver and Glitters Hope at the time. Met Tony Duke when Tony Welfare brought him out to our Angle Vale kennels on one of his SA visits. Trying to recall the name of the fella that managed Tony Duke’s property?
June Whyte– Con McCombe was the manager when I was there, Howard. He knew every greyhound on the property personally.
Howard Gray– yep I knew his 1st name was Con but was stumped for his surname.👍
Don McMillan– Bought pretty walk from tony duke won heat and final maiden Richmond 14 months old won enough with prize money to buy new falcon
