    The accolades keep coming for the Hardison Kennelís SH Avatar.

    The latest honor for SH Avatar is his repeating as Bluffs Runís Greyhound of the Year. The 2013 honor is more impressive than the 2012 award.

    Avatar is a unanimous selection this year, the first greyhound to be a unanimous choice in the 27-year history of the award.

    He is the first greyhound to win the award twice outright. NMS Sweet Thing and My Mr Peabody each won twice, but in each case, in one of the years, they had to share the honor. In 2008 NMS Sweet Thing shared Greyhound of the Year laurels with Slatex Cindel. My Mr Peabody shared the 1996 award with Con Man Mike.

    Since repeating as the $500,000 Iowa Breeders Classic champion, SH Avatar was named the No. 1 greyhound in the nation for 2013 in the United Greyhound Racing poll.

    Already noted is his $737,000 in earnings, making him the winningest greyhound in the history of the sport in the United States. The 71-pounder, born May 13, 2010 out of Kiowa Mon Manny-Tom S Caterwaul, finished the year No. 1 on the Bluffs Run winnersí board with a 56-33-7-9 record. SH Avatar opened 2013 by winning the grueling $60,000 Team Survivor. That stakes is a seven-round elimination format. Third-place finishes in the $60,000 Bluffs Run Open and the $60,000 Secretaryís Choice set the stage for his victory in the $500,000 Iowa Breeders Classic.

    SH Avatar rallied twice from the far turn in the semifinal race of the IBC to come from third to win. He went box-to-wire in the title race of the IBC, winning IBC record-tying time of 30.09 while becoming the oldest greyhound to win an IBC title.
