Why was Lucinda retired before she even reached 2 years old? Well, Lucinda was guilty of “interference”. This is when a Greyhound doesn’t just concentrate on running the race but instead distracts the other racers, impeding their performance. This is an absolute “no-no” on the track. So, despite her potential (the product of an “All American” father and an Irish grandfather), Lucinda was sent packing by her trainer to AAGA after just 3 races. While she is very sweet, we see evidence of her “interference”; she likes to roughhouse with and bark at the other Greyhounds. No doubt she will mellow out as she ages.
