In contrast to the weather recently, coursing was conducted in warm conditions. Sparrow Baz made a comeback for Shaun Laffin in the Open Event when he defeated Ken Myers Rexeray by a length and a half in 15.18 (best).
Shaun’s other runner, Explosive Device provided him with a winning double. Dakota Flair took out the Novice Stake when she showed Clyde Sannette a clean pair of heels.
Laurie Cahalan’s Kissed a Girl showed a liking for coursing when defeating Rowland Bale in a fast 15.20.
Shaun Matcott cemented his position as leading Trainer when Zoey Bale and Dawson Bale won their respective Maiden events.
Neil Mann’s Max Mayhem provided Neil with one of the Club Jackpots when winning the Two Wells Hardware & More Maiden Stake.
Doug Frith’s Point of Rhythm and Todd Kelly’s Gypsy Charros won their Juveniles in 15.68 and 16.10 respectively.
Owners and Trainers are reminded that our final meeting for 2010 will be held next Sunday, 17 October. All grades catered for – give your dog a day to remember and enjoy the good company, good food and good racing
