180 take off at Spadeadam



MORE than 180 hounds competed in the international at Spadeadam last Saturday.
Bright sunshine greeted the trail enthusiasts who turned out in their droves.
There were no entries from Ireland this year but there were some hounds from the Yorkshire Association.
The first trail was the senior hounds and 25 dogs set off. With only two BHTA entries, there was great excitement on the finish.
Sarah Harper and Hartley Robinson’s Delta Script was in the first bunch and finished well after taking a tumble in the rough ground while competing with the winner Crazy and Silver Dusk to take third.
In the senior maidens 38 set off at a cracking pace. At halfway Linda Neale and Josh Bryden’s Longtown hound Eagle Dude was up with the leaders and when they came back into view on the finish, was in about fourth.
As the whistles went on, Eagle Dude lifted and was finishing strongly but the line came too soon and she had to settle for second behind the HTA hound Hawkswood.
Brian and Marianne Shaw’s Lucky Charm ran a great race for seventh.
Sixteen pups set off and, as they came onto the finish, Steph Lithgows Jazzle was well up and finished a creditable fifth.
Eagle Star, also owned by Linda Neale, took seventh.
There were 33 puppy maidens slipped, with all the tickets going to the HTA.
The open restricted trail had the biggest entry of the day and this was won by Arizon who showed the field a clean pair of heels.
Frankel, for John and Liam Millburn, brought the BHTA another ticket when he finished fifth.
The final race was for the veteran hounds who had to be six years plus to qualify.
There were 26 runners and they set off at a furious pace. The leaders soon stretched out the field but when they started the climb up the finish, Tommy’s Legacy was just in front of Spring Dazzler and they fought it out all the way up the finish.
Spring Dazzler showed his determination to get past just before the line to take first place, much to the delight of his owner Jenny Horn. Tracey Hill’s Tyler Moon ran well for seventh.
