Saturday we headed to the track with 10 runners so it was disappointing not to come away with a winner. The closest we came was with Salacres Donald , again a member of the aforementioned Salacres Gem litter. Donald is a good honest wide running dog who always gives his all. He's now gone 7 races without victory though , running well in each race , hopefully his turn is near. We also had a few raw pups running on Saturday , Salacres (yes simply Salacres) , Salacres Silvia and Salacres Aneto all ran well enough without winning , they're all from our Dusseldorf x Salacres Polizzi litter and we're pleased with the litters progress so far. They and also a few others yet to hit the track should all be winning races over the next few months. Salacres Aidan found things a bit tougher in A4 after his debut win the previous week in A5. Aidan is from the Premier Fantasy x Incredible Lulu litter and his brother Salacres Walsh also ran on Saturday , making his debut in A7 he got behind early and could never get involved. They are all nice enough pups though and should pay their way this year.
Monday we had a double , the first of which was Salacres Costa who made it a hat-trick for the Gem litter over the weekend when winning in A3 for the first time. Our second winner was Salacres Francie who won for the second time in a matter of weeks in A1 grade. It's good to see Francie finding some form again after seemingly losing his way for a little while.
Tuesday we had 3 winners from 9 runners. Footballing legend Jimmy Hill recently passed away and it was good to see him remembered in style today as Salacres Jimmy landed the first race of the day and it was not long before Salacres Hill followed up last weeks A5 victory with an improved performance in A4. Our third and final winner of the day came in the penultimate race as Chip Butty took advantage of an easy lead in his A5 event and despite only winning by a short head never really looked like getting beat.
Thanks for reading as always.
