Back on the track our week got off to a good start when Salacres Achiles scored another victory , that's now 12 wins for Achiles and with that being his first victory in A3 , is this 3 1/2 year old improving still ? We bought Achiles unraced after being impressed with his full brother Bucks Ronaldo whilst trialing in at Nottingham. Achiles has never quite shown the same kind of pace that Ronaldo showed before injury intervened , but he's turned out to be a good solid grader who wins his fair share. Our other winner on Monday night was Dippy Diva. Whoever named this bitch knew exactly what they were doing. If ever there was a more appropriately named greyhound i've yet to come across them. She's a little madam alright and she knows it. Pleasing to see her get her first win under her belt at Nottingham though and hopefully the first of many. If you do ever see her running however , she'd be more one to include in your casts than to be placing plenty of faith in on the win only market.
We had a decent day on Tuesday mornings BAGS card. Salacres Cuban was first to score and she was followed in by Movealong Tina. Tina is a cracking little bitch with a heart the size of a lion. Tina was purchased by a relatively new owner of ours , Mr Alan Witts. I was delighted for Alan that Tina opened her account , he loves his dogs and that's great to see. That was Tinas first win at Notts but i'm sure it will not be her last. Salacres Johno was next up , winning his A4 race with ease by 5 1/2 lengths. He's a dog i've always held in high regard but for some reason he's one of those dogs that doesn't win anywhere near as often as he should. Hopefully he can start improving his strikerate over the coming months. Salacres Robbery was our fourth and final winner of the day. He was visiting the winners enclosure for the first time since March , a relief to see him hitting the front again and if not too harshly treated could score again now that he's got his head back in front.
Friday saw us draw a blank on the winners front but in the main the dogs all ran with credit. Saturday however saw us score our second four timer of the week. Salacres Cuban doubled up by easily winning A6 after her win earlier in the week in A7 , whilst Salacres Bolt impressed me greatly by comfortably handling his upgrade to D2. He showed excellent trapping ability again and showed good gears to the bend. His schooling didn't go smoothly but now he's up and running he's showing that he could potentially be a very decent pup indeed. Keep him onside. One of my favourite dogs in the kennel , Daves Hope , showed that age is no barrier to success by winning yet again. He's 6 1/2 years old now but don't let him hear you say that , he's having non of it. Salacres Gal won well in A6 , just touching off our other representative in the race , Salacres Nora , by a short head.
Finally we still have around 20 or so shares left available in top open class sprinter Head Case. Headley as he is known in the kennel is expected to be challenging in all of the top sprint races and competitions over the next couple of years. Not only will he give you some great nights at the track but by purchasing a share you will also be supporting a very worthy cause in the shape of www.headcase.org.uk. All prizemoney earned by Headley will be donated directly and in full to the charity. All inclusive shares are available at just £100 and that is all you will ever have to pay.
