One of Australia's most precocious, tenacious and fastest chasers who achieved amazing feats before his second birthday, winning the G1 (all comers) invitational Dapto Megastar, and then the G2 (all comers) Bob Payne Classic (WP). He was unbeaten in heats of Group races—Magic Maiden, Peter Mosman, Bob Payne, and raced in four Group races, and the NSW heat and final of the 2014 National Sprint Championship. At Wentworth Park, he raced 13 times for nine wins and two seconds. In 16 career starts, he was never beaten when leading. His tremendous early speed saw him break 5.40 to the first marker at WP many times, with a brilliant 5.32 in a heat of the Bob Payne. His best time at WP was a brilliant 29.51, equalling the PB of his famous kennel mate, Paua To Burn.He had been invited to the world's richest single invitational race, the 2014 TopGun at The Meadows, but had to be withdrawn after suffering an injury in a pre-race trial.He will be standing at stud while recuperating from his injury, and is in the experienced hands of stud master Kel Greenough, at the Greenough property at Pearcedale in Victoria. His trainer Steve White, trainer of the four-time G1 winner and Hall of Famer Paua To Burn, said of Tommy Brislane: "I never thought I would get another as good as Paua To Burn but Tommy Brislane showed he had the ability to go all the way."To win a Group 1 race of the stature of the Dapto Megastar before his second birthday showed how good he was and how much Group glory was ahead."I am sure he will make a full recovery but in the meantime he ticks all the boxes you'd want in a stud dog: superb confirmation, massive chase, and brilliant early speed."Tommy Brislane will be available for breeders from November, once all the paperwork and protocols have been completed.
Late news: on January 12, 2015, Tommy Brislane was one of three nominees for 2014 NSW Greyhound Of The Year (with Chica Destacada and Zipping Willow)
