Another wonderful performer for Allan Roberts Vibrant King. Super record and a finalist in Victorian Greyhound of the Year 1980.
Great shot here of the mighty Vibrant King a fanatical chaser he won 36 races with 32 placings. Winning $53,000 in stake money. He featured in many finals winning his share without taking a major. Pictured here with his trainer one of the all-time greats Allan Roberts, Vibrant King was bred by Allan by Glenavon King from his top bitch Vibrant Lass, the dam line to Miss Ringwood she was by Old Berry Hermes and a super race bitch and producer Perky Liz. Also, in the photo ace race caller Bryan Martin. Bryan called the dogs with another superb greyhound caller in those years Peter Donegan.
