The Prestige is a greyhound competition run at Hall Green stadium over 645m and is one of the highlights of January as some of the leading staying performers in the country do battle in the event, which has often been used as a starting point for thos six-bend performers aiming to shape into a premier challenger for the St Leger later on in the year.
It was an event first established in 2003 and it was the John Mullins-trained Maxie Rumble that tasted victory, while a year later Mullins landed to retain the crown with Jack Spark, who went off favourite for the then Walthamstow trainer, and since those first couple of years there have been some very smart winners of the event, and it has now become of the early season highlights shown in front of the Sky Sports cameras.
Dean Childs's Lorrys Options is another name that catapults off the illustrious roll of honour as the 6/5 favourite bounded to glory in the 2010 Prestige, while more recently the ultra-consistent Mark Wallis-trained Billys Bullet was a fine winner of the 2015 Prestige and for a couple of seasons he cemented his place as one of the leading stayers in trainer and went on to contest a couple of St Leger finals, as well as winning the Coral Regency during his memorable time on the track.
