There’s a new lady in Guy Williams‘ life. But his fianc ©e Rebecca has nothing to worry about because the female in question is a two-year-old bitch called Airforce Diva.
Yes, not content with Olympic selection, Nations Cup appearances and five-star grands prix on his plate for 2012, Guy Williams has ventured into greyhound ownership, and in Airforce Diva he seems to have found the canine equivalent of his equine speed merchant Djakarta.
Airforce Diva’s recent seven-and-a-half-length win at Tralee, Ireland, has whipped the greyhound industry into a frenzy and the dog is hotly tipped to win the Irish Puppy Oaks and Oaks proper in the summer after she won her heat at Shelbourne Park (Dublin) last week.
She will then continue her campaign in England when she will be sent to leading trainer Mark Wallis. Guy bought the dog in partnership with friend Simon Wooder.
