We're back home from a wonderful weekend of racing the Greyhounds. Sat morning was cool but temps climbed into the low 70s. The racing was as competitive as we've seen.
Here are a few photos from the weekend.

Working traffic in the turn

Our boy "Max" was "on fire" over the weekend, he ran undefeated in 6 races!! Max's first race was last year in Feb, in the last 12 months he has earned a Oval Racing Chapionship, was #1 NOTRA racing GH for 2010 and started this year earning a Supreme Oval Racing Championship

Tony took some on Sat, posted them on his FB page. Phil took some on Sun but he hasn't put any up yet. Krys took some video but I don't know if she took any of the Greyhound races. Probably won't see any video till end of the week, I'm sure she'll work on the Whippet races first.
We had a blast as always

Pat

Krys has been working overtime she posted some video of the Whippet races from Sat

Whippet Races, Sat


I got a msg from Krys, she only video the Whippet races. sigh

It's been a busy few months of racing for us, our boy Max has continued his win streak till last Sat. His sister Mandy decided it was time for her big brother to get a ego check. When the lid popped they came out together , at the first turn Mandy was leading by maybe a 1/2. As they turned down the front stretch Max put it in another gear but Mandy matched him stride for stride and held the lead at the wire winning by a head. Mandy halted Max's win streak a 19 ! It was a AWESOME race !!! Both got special treats with dinner Sat evening. :D Max came back later in the day with two "box to wire" wins and ran undefeated on Sun. :D
We've had the pleasure of racing a little blue Whippet for a friend this winter. Sat "Blu" earned another 10 OTR point for a life time total of 940, she now has earned more OTR points then any Whippet in NOTRA history!!!
Her owner and I figured that little "Blu" has competited in over 300 races since she started racing. Little "Blu" went home with her owner Sun afternoon for some more racing up north till she comes in season......then she may become a momma later this year.
As gas prices climb we may not be able to travel much to the races up north, sooooo it may be fall before we get to race again...... sigh...... guess we'll have to be content watching some races via the internet. :popcorn052:
