Border Brae takes the honours


PUPPY produce day was held at Sewingshields last Saturday.

As the seniors came into view at about halfway, Class Mo Salah was leading, with Polaris and Tynemouth giving chase.

Passing by the trail field, the same three hounds were still at the fore, with Fire Gun moving closer into fourth.

These four were well clear of the rest of the field. Coming onto the finish, Class Mo Salah and Polaris had gained an advantage,.

It was nip and tuck all the way to the line, with Polaris getting up to win by a length. Tynemouth was third, beating Fire Gun by half a length.

The next trail was the senior graded and Overwater Stanley was nearly a minute clear of the other 12 runners as he first came into view.

Although the field had pulled back some of the lead, Overwater Stanley sailed home for his second senior graded win.

The race was on for second as a bunch of six hounds, led by Lucky Charm, with Castle Clansman and Bobby Moon to the fore raced along.

Fire Lass finished well in the latter stages to take second and Bobby Moon was a few lengths back in third.

In the puppy produce trail Time Will Tell set the pace but a mistake dropping off the hill left Diggleboy in front of Matilda and Border Brae after they jumped the gate.

These three pups moved clear of the other runners as they passed the field.

As they appeared on the finish, Diggleboy had a three-length advantage but as they came onto the cleaner running, Border Brae pulled level and raced stride for stride to the line.

Border Brae took the honours by half a length for delighted owner and breeder Annabelle Connelly.

Only three veterans ran in the last race. As they moved by the field, Mr Ant had a few hundred yards on Chancer who had a similar advantage over Fire Bolt.

Mr Ant maintained his lead onto the finish to make it two wins from two races in the veterans and complete a double for George Burgen and Carol Tunstall.

Fire Bolt passed Chancer on the finish to take second place.

Seniors: Polaris, Class Mo Salah, Tynemouth, Fire Gun, Delta Script, Delta Scope. 7 ran. 26.24.

Senior graded: Overwater Stanley, Fire Lass, Bobby Moon, Buster Moon, Splendid Mikey, Donna’s Pride. 13 ran. 27.12.
