Friday night saw us land a five timer including a very nice win from Salacres Mitch in the Owners Bonus Series Final. Mitch is a dog that many of you will know well , he started off with Margaret Roberts at Notts and was looking like becoming a potentially high class staying dog when purchased by Pat Rosney. Injuries curtailed what would have been an excellent open racing career so we purchased the dog to enable him to continue with his graded racing at a track he obviously likes. I've got to admit he's not been an easy dog to keep on track , his problems need constant attention and for that reason Chris 'Wack' Brentnall deserves a big pat on the back for getting him right to land last nights final. He did it in the only way he knows how , tracking from the rear and pouncing fast and late on the rail , well done Mitch. Our other winners on the night were Salacres Bisset , Boss , Power and Daves Hope. It was particularly pleasing to see the veteran duo of Power and Daves Hope winning races at well past 6yo. In the case of Power , not only has she now turned 6yo but she has a litter of pups just trialling on. How I wish the pups were showing half as much potential ! Bisset ran a personal best of 3089 calculated , she's a quirky bitch to say the least but she can obviously run when she decides to and that's now 3 wins from her last 5 races.
