Ben Rawlings Trains 4 Winners At Virginia Coursing
With an unbelievable 17 race program, Ben Rawlings showed the way with 4 winners – Elizabeth Parker, Chestnut Barrow, Ali The Great and Dolmar.
Kelvin Stott, Peter Hurley, Shaun Matcott, Karon Blakemore, Rolland Parry, Neil Mann and Charles Adcock all provided a winner with Cathy Harris, Don Turner and Todd Kelly prepared doubles.
After a couple of days of record rainfall for Adelaide and suburbs, it was pleasing to see that the track was in superb condition with times a bit slower.
Coursing has already proved beneficial to a number of greyhounds returning to the circle track – with wins at their next start.
Remember, as we no longer clash with Gawler, it has been resolved that we will start 30 minutes later viz. earbrands/vet checking at 8.30 – 9.00 am with racing commencing at 9.30am.
Our next meeting is scheduled for Sunday 16 June – all grades catered for and 4-dog maiden events will continue throughout the year. However, Committee has decided to start running 8-dog events, particularly for those greyhounds who have already won their maiden – prizemoney will reflect the additional run required by the winner/runner-up.
