Sarah Puxty’s and Steve Coward’s Bring It On
The THIRD Championships of the season took place at the Cricket Club, Morton In Marsh on Sunday 6 August 2006 writes Carolyne Rabbitt.
The weather was very good and it seemed to encourage the spectators to come along and watch.
There were 187 dogs taking part in this event, they ran on a straight track of 150 yards in 15 different groups. The dogs had to run 3 – 4 races to reach a final. There was only one dog made up to a Champion at this event namely Sarah Puxty’s and Steve Coward’s Bring It On (pictured above). The winners of the other groups were WCRCh (Whippet Club Racing Champion) Tinkers Moonshadow, WCRCh Close To Crazy, Vodkatini, WCRCh Shiny, and Hearts Delight. To become a champion the dogs need to win two Championship finals.
Veterans that win their group become Veteran Crowns on the day.
The fourth and final championships of the season will take place on Sunday 8 October 2006.
