12/3/19 Weekly Update.
One winner for us this week and what a popular winner it was too, TOWSTAR POPPY having only her 2nd race won the 'TERRY PRINCE 61ST BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION' Terry and family have shares in POPPY and they were on track enjoying Terry's birthday which made the race even more special, this is what greyhound syndication is for me, seeing owners enjoying a night out, going to see their dog run, sponsoring a race, just small things like that, make greyhound ownership that bit more special and I like to think that the Towstar syndicate manages to provide this.
Poppy led from the traps to the finish line and was still first to the drop which is very positive considering shes just a Aug 17 pup, it was also great for trainer ANNELIESE THOMPSON to get her first winner for us, that makes it 85 winners now for the syndicate.
We had various runners at HENLOW this week, EVITA getting 2nd again probably the best run, DELBOY and WINSTON are high enough in the grades at the moment, but with more improvement in them likely we look forward to seeing them get their heads in front again soon.
It was great to see ZELDA back on the racecard last week, she is short of fitness at the minute after her season, but will improve with racing and still has some shares available.
JESS and ARRY both moved another step closer to there racecard reappearances......... wont be long now!
At MONMORE we look forward to seeing TOWSTAR SASHA back on the card tomorrow our top grade sprinter has had a well earned rest after a slight injury so fingers crossed she can go well again.
TOWSTAR CIARA was due to have her first trial for us today, but that has been cancelled as she has come heavily into milk, so we shall wait another couple of weeks for that to clear up and she will be then ready to trial.
I am currently in talks with trainers and breeders to source us a nice dog to run up north at NEWCASTLE, so watch this space for future details.
I hope those horse race fans amongst you enjoy Cheltenham, my tip for what its worth in the Gold Cup is Presenting Percy.
