Eddy's last two schooling runs were good, he's looks to be a late speed dog. I was told about 3 more weeks and he'll be ready to go to the track. Waiting to hear back from a kennel,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Eddy didn't break well this morning, he did make up the distance as the race progressed. He managed to pass the leader before the finish line. I pleased with his run & perplexed by his break this morning.

This time last year I watched 4 month old puppies play wondering about my pup's future as a racer. I watched as they grew into young adults and started to mature. The day Eddy moved from the runs to the kennel, the morning I held him for his first run on a track.

The next step in his journey is nearly here.

Eddy will leaving the farm for Derby Lane the week of the 18th, he will run out of the D'Arcy kennel.

Eddy ran from the 4 hole this morning in a 4 dog race, he broke last. He was about 3/4 of length back out of the box but he stayed with the other 3 into the escape turn. Up the back he passed 2 dogs and got the leader going the far turn. He kept the lead as they crossed the finish line, GREYT RUN! Fri morning may be Eddy's last school race on the farm.
We'll be headed to Derby Lane Fri to meet with his new trainer, then Eddy will follow soon.
Exciting times !!!!!! :D

Eddy's schooling will continue on the farm for a bit longer, he's doing fine in his races on the farm.
We met with his future kennel owner/trainer at Derby Lane Friday evening to discuss his future. The evening could not have gone better, we so enjoyed the evening at Derby Lane. We are waiting for a opening in the kennel, so maybe another week or so before he departs the farm.
:D
Yesterday started like most Friday's for Eddy, morning schooling, then we got word late yesterday afternoon that Eddy would be leaving Fri evening.

Today is Eddy's first day in a race kennel.
:D

This afternoon I got a wonderful pre Thanksgiving message from Eddy's trainer, he is settling into life in a race kennel well. They took him to the sprint field for a easy run to stretch his legs with one other dog. He will get to go to the sprint field more this week and maybe next week he will start going to the track for morning school runs.
:D :D :D :D :D

I'll post when he's scheduled to race and I can post a video replay.

I expect he'll run some Official School races soon, maybe around the 15th, depends how the trainer feels.
