3rd WCRA Championships and Veteran Crowns, 6 AUGUST 2015 at The Whippet Meadow, Detling. 170 yards straights; veterans 150 yards at 1/2 yd/lb & yd/yr.

Whippets racing

First of all huge credit to the guys who worked so hard to produce a good running surface. Effectively zero grass growth since the last Champs and naturally the bunnies preferred the track to the infield – the grass tastes MUCH nicer – but despite all that Ray and team of helpers conjured a decentracecourse. Careful watering gave us good going and no injuries reported.

To the racing. Three new titles, congratulations to The Poet, Leavit to Me and Fun Lovin’. Ameesha Little Ebs won her third weight class in the 18lb group while Satin Secret secured her “half” in the 20-pounders. A well-deserved title – he’s been knocking on the door a while now – for The Poet in the 22lb class, he turned round a second place in his heat. Then all the way from Scotland, the 24lb winner Blue Dynamite Girl made the Thomsons’ trek well worthwhile.

Fenland Whisper also made it three weight class wins in the 26lb group, while the 28lb final gave us the most impressive winner of the day, LeavitTo Me coming home a rattling five lengths in front of a good field, trap to line.

The two brothers Nip & Tuck and Markamy’s Red Fred continued to dominate the 30lb and 32lb classes and then it was on to the veterans. First the 6-7 year olds; Fun Lovin’ (The Poet’s mum) was beaten in her heat but no mistake in the final as she added a Veteran Crown to her WCRCh title in the lightweights. Sapphire’s Gem a more than capable understudy to her sister to take the middleweights; Topaz usually “cleans up” the field but Gem is a fine racer in her own right. A special mention here for second place Stripey Nancy, probably the best she’s ever run.

The heavyweight group was won for the second time by Game On, a classy veteran in anyone’s books. In the seniors, both winners, Pretty Color and Blade Bunny closed proceedings by backing up their wins in the 1st Veteran Crowns, so unusually just the one new veteran title.

Well done to all the dogs and see you all on 4 October!
