Short And Sweet Coursing At Virginia

With only 29 nominations received, coursing was a short sharp affair yesterday. In cool but sunny conditions, only 6 winners greeted the judge.

Carole Scott dared to have a double with Noble Quoted taking out the Veterans Stake and Lash Out winning a Juvenile/Maiden Stake.

Anakin Skywalker continued on his winning way for Cathy Harris when winning a One Stake.

A very happy Geoff Ryles was over the moon when Royal Ryles won the Kennards Hire Maiden Stake – Geoff has worked very hard over the past 18 months with this dog and his patience and hard work were rewarded when he won.

Jim Seaton also had his patience rewarded when Mystify Gold took out the Adelaide Plains Veterinary Surgery Maiden.

Last but not least, that wonderful speed coursing bitch Miss Eva Mai won the Ruby Loans Open stake defeating her kennel mate, It’s the Answer in a fast 15.07.
