Saturday night at Nottingham saw us land another very welcome hat-trick. It was great to see Salacres Way one of our home bred pups from the Rebel Ring x Salacres Power litter score the first win of his career. He came away in good style and the result never really looked in doubt as he went on to take his A8 contest by over 3 lengths. Hopefully the first win of many and he should win more races over the coming months. At the opposite end of the scale two of our veteran bitches were to both win their A5 events. Cuban and Tuffin both winning well.
Monday night at Nottingham was to see the long awaited debut of our charity syndicate greyhound Head Case. Headley as he's known in the kennel wasn't quite to read the script as he came in third , however from what was a potentially poor trap draw in trap 1 and then a very troublesome first bend , it wasn't a bad effort at all and i'm sure he will give all his team of owners alot of enjoyment over the coming months. I was sorry to see Keith Allsops Slick Squaw suffer a bad injury in this race. She looked to be in a winning position until disaster struck and my thoughts are with connections. Thankfully Invictus and Kilcuala Hondo who were knocked over in the race appeared to get up and complete the course with no obvious signs of injury. Next stop Romford on Friday for Head Case , he is to take in a 400m maiden open race which will be televised live on Racing Post TV , Sky Channel 212. A very limited amount of all inclusive 1% shares are available at just £100. Don't miss out ! Though Head Case was out of luck last night we did have a couple of winners. It was good to see Salacres Cool scoring an over due success in A2 grade , he came out in flying style last night , as did Salacres Brad who took his maiden sprint open by an emphatic 7 3/4 lengths.
Trebles seem to be the order of the day at the minute and it was nice to land another at today's BAGS meeting. Salacres Clover was the first of our winners , scoring well in A6 , whilst Salacres Khan disposed of his A3 opposition in a manner that suggests this is a pup who's got a very bright future ahead of him. Does his name ring any bells ? Back in July and before the dog had competed in a race , a headline on this very blog suggested that his was a name you would do well to remember. 14 races and 6 wins later , I do hope you took the advice. He simply took off today as he won his A3 event by 5 1/2 lengths in a brilliant 2998. Next stop Romford on Friday for a puppy open. Salacres Johno was our third and final winner of today , he managed to turn in a handy position and came home really well for a 4 1/2 length victory.
It might appear that i'm slightly critical of the grading of some of our dogs at times , but the lads in the office aren't a bad bunch really , lol , and it's only fair that they also receive credit where credit is due. Salacres Khan has always been a pup with great promise and the racing office deserve a pat on the back for their handling of him. He's been allowed to progress through the grades nicely and has been allowed to learn his trade without being thrown in at the deep end.
Thanks as always for taking the time to read the blog and anytime you're at the track , do come and say hello.
