Ken Smith Memorial

The Ken Smith Memorial

Many old timers will remember Ken well. He would readily assist anyone who sought his help. He was a battling trainer with handy dogs rather than champions, but many, considered him a champion bloke. Ken spent most of his time racing at Beenleigh where this race was originally established. Capalaba, when managed by Bernie Culey, readily took on the race in order to continue Ken’s memory.
David Brasch summed up Ken Smith in these words.
“I knew Kenny so well when we first got into greyhound racing more than 40 years ago. He was the epitome of the Aussie battler. He had moderate success with dogs but ran a successful greyhound supply business located at Carina, for many years. At the end he was living around Logan. He did have a very good dog that was placed in the Queensland Derby at the Gabba but generally he just had handy dogs at the best of times. Kenny was the loveliest of people and so helpful at all times".
