A brilliant day all round today, a cold wind but it stayed dry and was lovely when the sun came through the clouds.
33 dogs attending with lots of dogs improving every week and growing in confidence with every run - nice to watch them progressing every week .
Some firsts this week; Penny & Badger both had their first passing trials and passed perfect (Thanks to Terry for allowing us to use Snip and Piper, these two are worth their weight in gold, much appreciated).
George, Roxy, Ella & Django all trialed from a closed trap for the first time with no problems, next step to run in company.
More new dogs; Sky, Frankie, Crumpet, Brady & Ronnie all went well.
Lots of helpers setting up, lending a hand during racing & packing away. Fiona once again kept everyone in warm drinks and hot pot. Much appreciated.
As can be seen by the times, the track was drying up over the course of the day from 1st run to 2nd run. Hopefully things are on the up now with the weather.
Trials for the non peds first before kick off.
Black Admiral, Worth It, Jeigermeister, Spit n Image, Mo’s the Point, Weardale Ronnie, Monogram and a race between Mo Hawk, Marshbrook Meave & Madam Moet (Meave winning first time up and Moet turning her over in the 2nd run). Unfortunately Spit n Image came off lame, speedy recovery Leo xx
