Our last date is fast approaching and 8 September is it. The season finale will have 4 feature races – the 2013 Waterloo Cup, the Oaks and the Derby as well as a feature 8-dog maiden proudly supported by the Lang Lang Coursing Club.
The Club was most appreciative of an offer from Lang Lang to provide a substantial trophy for a race to be conducted on our final day. We are hopeful that close cooperation between our traditional coursing clubs can strengthen the bonds that assist coursing continue.
So far we have had 154 individual dogs win at least one course and 56 trainers who provided these dog – the benefits of a stint behind the drag lure are well known and over the past few weeks, many circle winners have shown renewed vigour for racing – Dolmar, Avatar Kist, Well Quoted, Stone Cold Casey, Hilltop Snow, Fair Change, Significant Bit, Go Harvey Go, Speed Chick, Red Hot Cherry, Uncle’s Miss, Emerley Magik, Runagate, Jenna Lee, Nicholas Jack – are just a few.
