Bobby Moon shines brightly



THE Langholm Show trails at Sorbie Farm last Sunday managed to dodge the rain for most of the day.
The first trail for the Podge McGimpsey trophy was for senior hounds and there were six entries.
As they jumped into view on top of the hill, three hounds had a good lead over the rest of the field.
Delta Script and Castle Clansman were just in front of Fire Bolt with a long gap to the rest.
When they came next into view, the same three were clear but Fire Bolt was up into second place.
This was the order in which they finished as Delta Script sped home for her 14th win of the season.
The senior graded also had six entries and when they came over the top fence into view, Ranger had about 20 yards on Buster Moon and Delta Surprise down the hill.
When they came over the next knowe, Buster Moon and Delta Surprise had closed the gap.
Ranger was still front as they came round the edge of the wood but Buster Moon finished the best to get in front just before the line for a nice win.
Ranger had to settle for second with Delta Surprise in third.
Five puppies set off and when they came into sight, the two favourites Jazzle and Polaris were fighting it out neck and neck but ran wide down the wall.
Delta Scope came down the trail but scaled and was the first to find the scent and set off with Fire Belle in tow.
Polaris spotted them and set off after these two down the finish. Jazzle and Eagle Star headed back to the start.
By the time they came into view, Polaris had caught the other two and finished well to win easily.
Fire Belle was second and Delta Scope was the only other one to finish.
Polaris was presented with the Broomley Feeds trophy by Doreen Phillipson.
The puppy graded trail had four entries and they came down the trail no bother, with Sportsman and Bobby Moon taking turns in front.
Bobby Moon ran down the loaning a bit at the last fence but, by the time they came round the edge of the wood, he was in front and held on to win from Sportsman.
There were four veterans in the final race and they set off at a cracking pace.
When they came into view, Tyler Moon and Delta Sparkle were just in front of Castle Caledonia but, by the time they arrived over the last hill, Castle Caledonia had about a 20-yard lead.
Although Tyler Moon and Delta Sparkle closed the gap, Caledonia won with Tyler Moon in second.
