It is with pride that I wish to inform everybody that I have been successful in applying for the position of trainers representative at the GBGB. I thought long and hard about applying for this role but after much thinking decided that I couldn't sit back and watch the sport decline without giving it my 100% effort. This great sport has been my life , as it has with many other people. We deserve a fairer deal , that's not just some of us in the sport but all of us. I look forward to representing my fellow trainers and if anybody has any queries at all please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Apologies for lack of updates recently but Winter is always a time when we need to concentrate all our efforts on the dogs. Most recently we've also had alot of pups to start of with trials and debuts and as anybody who has ever worked with pups will know this is always a testing time. Hopefully the coming months will start to show that the efforts of us all at Salacres Kennels have been worthwhile and the pups show good ability on the track. We certainly think there's at least a few with good potential. Our most recent litter from Salacres Gem were sired by Zero Ten and there look to be a couple of decent pups amongst them. There are 3 dogs in the litter , namely Mystery , Koeman and Olympic. They are 3 very nice pups who should pay to follow over the coming months. Do just keep in mind though that they are very raw still and will improve at varying rates. The bitches aren't too bad either , Destiny has had a few runs in mid grade without success yet whilst Empire has had a few sprint races just to build up her fitness and experience. Hopefully it won't be too long before they're getting off the mark. We've a fair few other pups hitting the ground at the minute too. I particularly like a July 2015 pup of ours called Salacres Kearni. He's by Superior Product out of Tomeli Expert (a litter sister to our own Gem). He made a mockery of A6 rivals on his debut and has since won well in A5. Giving him a good start of 2 wins from 4 races. I can see him winning more races throughout the year so is one to keep on side. A young July 15 bitch by Makeshift out of Barley Bussell is really exciting me. Incredible Flyer is her name and I really think she has a big future. She's now won 2 from 4 , firstly when destroying A6 opposition and latterly in A3. She'll be up in grade again this coming weekend but should again run with credit. Flyer is coming forward with each week and in the long run I believe her future will lay over further.
I'd just like to congratulate Towcester on getting the Derby. Really well deserved by all the team there and i'm 100% sure that they will make it an occasion to remember at a venue that all in the sport can be proud of.
Thanks for reading , do come and have a chat whenever you see me down at Notts or elsewhere and good luck with your own runners throughout 2017.
