Perry Barr stage six open races tonight, and we think Sheffield handler Kirsty Grayson will enjoy a profitable evening at the Birmingham track. Nah Then Bella T3 can be forgiven her latest effort in a much tougher Monmore heat and bounce right back to form in the Arc Bitches Stakes at 6. She was in against some top-class performers at the Wolverhampton circuit last Saturday, not least the winner Tenpin, who is antepost favourite for this year's Derby, and she can take full advantage of the drop in class back in against her own sex.
The quick turnaround suggests she's in good nick and she won one of these impressively over track and trip last month, displaying smart early pace. The son of Holdem Spy has been knocking hard on the door in recent starts and his latest Nottingham effort over m, when finishing a neck second to the in-form Affirmed, was a cracker.
He had the reopposing Magical Icarus back in fifth that night and a press of the repeat button may well suffice. The switch to sprinting in the autumn of her career appears to have brought about plenty of improvement, as she's won five of her seven starts over tonight's track and trip since dropping to two bends in November last year. An emphatic D2 triumph and multiple D1 wins earned her a crack in open-race company last time and she flew out of the boxes en route to making all and gaining a notable scalp - last year's Silver Salver champion Shrewd Call.
There is tough competition again tonight in the shape of Monday's Nottingham winner Geelo Brezza and Grayson's Coolavanny Dylan, the Bresmed Northern Sprint winner and unbeaten in the RPGTV Dash here in November, but if the daughter of Scolari Me Daddy traps as well as she did last time she should get first run on those rivals and prove tough to peg back.
A couple of pipe opening wins at Sittingbourne before the Juvenile were followed by an astonishing performance in the Betfair Trainers Championship meeting at Doncaster winning a hot last leg that made us victorious on the night. This was followed by an unbeaten run in the Category 1 Blue Riband comprehensively winning the final and breaking his own track record in the process, such a loss to the sport!
Eye Onthe Tempo was underrated all last year winning reguarly on the open circuit as well as taking the Dual Distance Trophy at Henlow. Risky Wand scored 9 open wins in what was an exceptionally high class sprint division and had the scalps of both Jimmie Lollie and Rotar Wing during the year. Corrig Vieri 's great career may have come to a premature end due to injury but he still racked up his fair share of opens as did grand old servant Directors Ruler.
Kinda Easy was our winning most open racer with 14 victories but his luck when reaching numerous big race finals deserted him. Littermate and our Derby hero Kinda Ready was bang on course for a starring role in after a brilliant opening win at Monmore in a fast time but an injury in a prep trial for the Trainers Championship cost him a chance of defending his crown but a tremendous comeback saw him make the quarter-finals of the Irish Derby and in his last race of the year was a desperately unlucky loser in the Eclipse final.
Directors Wit had his moments in an injury interrupted year and would have landed the Golden Sprint in most years had it not been for Ardbeg Mentor producing one of the great runs of smashing the Romford track record. Mark Currell has two dogs of the highest calibre in Blonde Snapper and Blonde Fletch who took on the highest class pups with credit and it would be wrong to say they should have took at least one of the finals they contested though it would have been nice for Mark if they had, maybe this year will be his!
On the graded side at both Harlow and Yarmouth Legit Jack and Mint Bulb produced stacks of wins while Aero Merlin looks certain to progress to above average on the open scene after coming through the grades at Yarmouth as does Kinda Breezy. It has to be said looking back on it has mostly been a year to forget. We were always going to struggle to beat an epic with our record breaking efforts but after a slow start to the year we picked up nicely in March and at the end of the month were standing on top of the world after a dramatic win in the Trainers Championship meeting at Doncaster with superstar Eye Onthe Storm clinching a nail biting victory in the last leg to land us the title we had not won since Eye Onthe Storm landed us our only Category 1 success of with an unbeaten run in the Blue Riband at Hall Green and was a clear Greyhound Derby favourite going into the first round way back at the end of April with us standing some 80 points clear at the top of the Trainers Championship standings.
We finished 3rd in the Trainers Championship behind Charlie Lister in second with a first title going to a well deserved Seamus Cahill who had the kind of year we had previously, of course without that magical Derby win. We still have a lot to be thankful for and some bright spots and plenty of hope for the future so I hope you enjoy the review and awards below and again thanks to all my staff, family and friends and not forgetting the wonderful dogs as well for keeping the show on the road and special thanks to Mick and Maureen for running this superb site.
Happy to all! Our kennel was also suffering through most of January with a severe virus that kept quite a few of our stars off the track. Adageo was our first winner of the year in a graded race at Harlow. Eye Onthe Tempo was a good 3rd in the Coronation Cup Final at Romford but we had to wait until Kinda Easy won his heat of the Prestige at Hall Green to put our first open winner of the year up on the board, not a great night in front of the Sky cameras on the finals night with Kinda Easy a well beaten 2nd in the Prestige Final.
Off the track our kennel party was a brilliant night at 'The Hare ' in Roxwell though sadly the severe weather meant a lot of cancellations. Rick Holloway and his SOS team were beginning a superb campaign to do the impossible and get greyhound racing back at Walthamstow which as we speak still dominates the news. The industry awards night took place at the London Hilton Metropole in front of a sell out audience. I proudly recieved my 'Trainer Of The Year ' award on behalf of the kennel.
The virus affecting our kennel and the continuing cold snap gave us a slow start to the month and it was most disappointing not to be able to defend our Arc crown at Swindon due to these circumstances. Gradually as the month went on some of our top stars returned to the track as we prepared for the forthcoming Trainers Championship meeting at Doncaster in March. The open winners were beginning to flow by the end of the month most notably Eye Onthe Storm winning at Sittingbourne and Kinda Ready at Monmore in a blistering Only one sad point was the loss of the promising Droopys Seve in an unfortunate incident in a race at Romford.
Probably the most memorable month of , our team was starting to fire on the open circuit and track records for Eye Onthe Flash at Sittingbourne and Bomber Bailey at Harlow gave us all a lift especially after the disappointment of seeing Eye Onthe Storm get beaten in a hot Juvenile at the start of the month at Wimbledon. I have to say I aged a few years after the disgusting tactical seedings from some of the trainers resulting in 'Frankie' getting a poor trap 4 draw in the race but thankfully, despite not getting any kind of run, he came home safe and sound.
Jogadusc Ace was a good winner on the supporting card. Directors Spur ran well to make the Final of the Monmore Puppy Derby but a poor start cost him dear and he was last in a very good race behind Ballymac William. Tom Bent joined our kennel staff and enjoyed the taste of success straight away as we landed a memorable Trainers Championship meeting at Doncaster.
The build up to the Trainers Championship sponsored generously again by Betfair had been bigger and better than before with a superb Luncheon the week before at the Langham Hotel in London and we were confident of sending out a strong team headed by our stars but even the best made plans sometimes go wrong. One of the first names on the team sheet Droopys Zach was still injured and unable to take his place and disastrously after a scorching trial over track and trip our Derby hero Kinda Ready was ruled out after damaging a toe joint.
We still however were confident of a good showing and were determined to avenge the heavy defeat inflicted upon us the year before at Sheffield by Charlie Lister. Well it couldn't have started any worse in the first leg as Aero Bolt was knocked over in the Puppy race in front of a packed Stadium and a huge audience watching on Sky, thankfully he picked himself up to secure a point. Directors Wit answered back with a scintillating burst of pace to land the Sprint beating the likes of Jimmie Lollie in the process and reserve Eye Onthe Flash scored valuable points when 3rd in division 4 of the 's.
Corrig Vieri ran well but could only finish 4th in the first of the Stayers races with Charlie Lister taking a healthy lead at halfway. Kinda Easy missed his break and trailed in a well beaten last with Charlie Lister's old stager Carbarns Tom winning to give Charlie a 5 point lead going in to the last leg.
Enter the stage Eye Onthe Storm , could he possibly not only win but see Tyrur Speedy of Charlie's down the field - the tension was unbearable. What was to happen next will live long in the memory as our superstar 'Frankie' showed a devastating turn of pace to lead out of the second bend, the result of the race never in doubt as he galloped to victory but where was Tyrur Speedy, wow he's struggling near the rear of the field after a hefty bump at the first bend OI OI!
For the record we won the Trainers Championship at Doncaster by 2 points from Charlie Lister and during that week we contemplated the fact we now held not only both Trainers crowns but had the current Greyhound Derby and St Leger titles for at least a few months anyway. How fortunes can change as you will see reading the monthly reviews this sport, as many do, has a funny way of biting you in the bum when you least expect it! If March had been a dramatic month then it has to be said April will be a month never to forget and sadly not all for the right reasons.
It began well with the momentum of winning the Trainers Championship at Doncaster giving the whole kennel a lift. Three competitions got underway and we felt we had leading chances of landing all three. Directors Wit now stepped up to m for the Golden Sprint at Romford ran with credit but in the final couldn't get near Ardbeg Mentor who broke the long standing track record in In the Peterborough Puppy Derby we had less expectations and in the end Bim Bam Boozle looked to be a very unlucky runner up.
Jogadusc Ace ran creditably when 4th. We had now hit the top of the Trainers Championship standings and everything seemed set for us to enjoy another superb year, how wrong can we be! News that Bomber Bailey , a phenomenal hurdler had to be retired when breaking a bone in his wrist at Sittingbourne after going down by a short head was a setback but our spirits were high. Kinda Ready lost his battle to be fit for a defence of his crown but at least his injury was on the mend and he would be back racing in the future, still a major blow.
On the plus side Adageo had come from contesting an A6 at Harlow 2 months previously to record a blistering A pre-Derby function at Henlow Stadium organised by GOBATA saw all the top names in the sport air their views on who was going to win and Eye Onthe Storm was on most peoples' lips, the scene was now set for the first batch of Derby heats.
Thursday 29th April and away we go, the Derby is off and running. Eye Eye Pickle scorched to a new track record albeit briefly of A couple of eliminations followed but all eyes were on Eye Onthe Storm who faced a difficult heat and a tough draw.
The venue has special offers on drinks in the cosy Savana Bar. Our favourite bar was the Coconut Bar. The outside bar is undercover and is fully heated and is the perfect place to enjoy a few drinks while watching the action up close. If you are planning a special occasion then the function room can be hired free of charge minimum of 50 people. Making it an ideal location for birthdays, team meetings etc..
With race events on six days of the week. Henlow greyhound stadium is one of the busiest tracks we have reviewed. The rare times are as follows;. Although the race lengths do vary, the most common races are run over m, m, mH, m, m, m and even a marathon m. You will not struggle to find top quality events at Henlow with five meetings per week. The Westmead Hawk Henlow Derby is one of the biggest races that is held at the stadium.
The event takes its name from one of the most famous and successful greyhounds that have ever graced the sport. Born in , Hawk won his first English Greyhound Derby in Trailing the leaders after completing the first turn, Hawk produced a stunning burst of speed to overtake Blonde Mac and take the win by a length and three quarters.
The next year, Westmead Hawk repeated the feat by winning the edition. This time, however, it was much closer. Trailing Mineola Farloe for much of the race, Hawk gained on the final two bends and took the race by three-quarters of a length. The win meant that Westmead Hawk became only the fourth dog to have won the English Greyhound Derby twice.
Often called the Red Rum of greyhounds, Hawk was widely expected to pick up a third victory but sadly a bad injury at Hall Green a short time after his Derby win ended his career and he was retired. The story does have a happy ending, though. While his other pup, Sidaz Jack, also won the Derby, this time in Westmead Hawk was immortalised by Madam Tussauds after his second Derby victory, becoming the first ever animal athlete to have a waxwork. There has been Henlow dog racing at the site since Originally a straights track, greyhound racing started in During the s the meetings were held on Monday and Friday evenings.
In Henlow finally became a licenced track, ending over 50 years of being an independent. In , modernisation of Henlow greyhound stadium facilities was performed. In , it looked like the days of dog racing at Henlow were over, a proposed development would have closed the venue.
This stopped the development and secured the future. If you want to experience a good old fashioned day-out, then a trip to watch Henlow dog racing comes highly recommended.
