Five runners on Saturday , no winners but McManus , Francie and Diablo all ran good races when finishing second in their respective races.
Monday night saw Salacres Dougie put his A2 rivals well and truly to the sword. Averagely away he showed a devastating burst of early pace to soon put the race to bed. Dougie is from our homebred Dusseldorf x Salacres Polizzi litter and he continues to improve. 2989 (+50) was his winning time , the second time in his last 5 runs that he's broken the 30 second barrier. This was a personal best time and if he can just start trapping a little snappier i'm sure he can shave a little bit more off this yet.
Myself and Peter headed over to Ireland on Monday night on the overnight ferry in order to pick up the Zero Ten x Salacres Gem and the Superior Product x Tomeli Expert pups from top schooler Damian McCann. The pups have all gone well and a couple could be very decent. Watch this space.
A quick turnaround and the trip back over was made a little easier as we had 4 winners and a couple of forecasts back at Notts on the Tuesday BAGS meeting. Whiteys Finest got the ball rolling winning her A3 by 1 1/2 lengths. Foxy won his A6 race and was followed home by Colin to give a Salacres forecast of £24.71. Salacresbenidorm won his A3 by a length , whilst Kyle won his A4 and was followed home by Aneto to give another Salacres forecast of £24.52. Foxy , Benidorm and Kyle are all sired by Zero Ten , a sire we really rate and would recommend to anybody with a bitch to suit.
Thanks for reading and can anybody who bumps into Peter over the weekend please remind him that leave by 645pm means leave by 645pm and not 730pm. Next time the ferry might not wait !
