From the moment Banjo Boy stepped onto the breaking in track he proved he was an elite athlete capable of running track records.
Whether a straight track, u-turn track or two turn track, Banjo Boy was able to run track records or near track record times due largely to his blistering turn of pace allowing him to beat the best dogs of his times.
This was reflected in his nomination for two Sandown Shootouts, the only dog to have this honour.
He showed his ability from the moment he stepped onto the track running BOD times including 18.96 on his way to winning the Healesville Derby.
He recorded fast times at all tracks and distances he raced and trialled over including Cranbourne 29.88, The Meadows 29.73 and Ballarat 25.36.
Unquestionably he loved Sandown and Warragul (his home track) where he ran scintillating times, regularly running near record and record breaking times in races and trials.
Ironically the greatest disappointment of his career for connections was losing the official times of 29.01 and 29.14 at Sandown and 25.51 (to equal El Grand Senors track record) at Warragul due to a vet prescribed medication latter deemed by the RAD Board to be non performance enhancing but prohibited.
Post this event he proved his level of ability breaking both the 400m and 460m track records at Warragul in trials, the only dog we believe to have done this.
Of the 16 official races he won, 10 were in the best of the day.
