The race for the national win title was a runaway in 2021 as Carl Tomblin's CET Dirty Dilly easily outdistanced all others garnering 42 wins for the year. A Caliente product, Between the Linz, finished a distant second with 32 wins. The race was never really close as Dilly had won 21 races halfway through the year including an unbelievable 16 in a row from April 1 through July 2.

CET Dirty Dilly is a December 2018 female out of SH Avatar-CET Dirty Nicki. She was raised and is owned by Carl Tomblin II and races for his CET Kennel at Tri State. Her accomplishments for the year included a couple of stakes wins, multiple win streaks and a track record setting performance on September 7 when the speedy female covered the 5/16 course at Tri State in 29.23. That record setting performance was the culmination of a nine race win streak.


Dilly in full stride

Her first stake win came in the $65,000 WVKOBA Sprint Championship in June where she cruised to a thirteen length victory in what would be the 15th of 16 straight wins. After winning sixteen straight, she "cooled off" and ran 2nd, before beginning a win streak of nine straight that featured the track record setting performance. Finishing 2nd again in her next start, she took off again and won 12 of her next 16 including her final start of the year and a win in the $100,000 Mardi Gras Classic.

Her final stat line for the year was 55 starts, 42 wins, 9 second place finishes and 1 fourth. 76% win percentage, 92% in the quinella and 94% on the paysheet, incredible numbers for an exceptional greyhound!

Congratulations to Carl and all his team on the accomplishments of this great greyhound!
