The other litter which we have been working hard on over the past few months are the Dusseldorf x Salacres Polizzi litter. Dussel who a few people have said to me. We called Dusseldorf Dougie in the kennel and although at times his form might appear patchy , he wasn't a great kenneler for starters , believe me , on his day Dougie could give any dog a run for their money and I really mean , ANY DOG. Given that Dougie's breeding matched up nicely with what we were looking for with Polly , we decided to give it a go and we are very pleased that we did. This litter of 10 pups , all black , look very nice indeed. There's a couple in the litter who look very nice and with a bit of luck , we will see some nice performances from them during 2016. Being August 2014 whelps , there is plenty of time on our side with them yet and patience is the keyword.
Add to these pups a few dogs and bitches out of Incredible Lulu and sired by Premier Fantasy and the future really is looking bright.
I'd like to also pass on our congratulations to the Comerford family on their recent big race success at Shelbourne Park. Black Alder was a magnificent winner of the Comerford Cakes Open 525 Final last Saturday evening in a scintillating 2822 (+20). A September 2013 whelp sired by the Comerfords own stud dog Zero Ten and out of Fintan Comerfords Allen Harbour , he really put this quality field to the sword from an early stage and ran out a very impressive winner. Breeding , rearing , schooling , training the winner of any big competition is what most greyhound folk dream of , to also be the generous sponsor of that competition must really add the icing to the cake. The Comerford family have been great supporters of Salacres Racing Team over the past few years with their Zero Ten dogs in particular providing us with countless winners. We wish them every success.
Thanks for reading , updates will be a little more frequent again from now onwards.
May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy christmas and a prosperous new year from all at Salacres Racing Team.
