Easter at Newark
We travelled up to Newark for Easter weekend for a competition hosted by Extreme Racers. Hoping to build on our successes in March, both teams exceeded our expectations. The sun shone all weekend and we all had a ball!
Black Adders raced with 4 dogs for the first time this season; Patch, Cai, Buddy and Maddie. After some initial teething problems, they set a new seed time of 18.69 over 10 inches. All dogs raced well and are really bedding in, with the handlers able to catch some nice changes.
Black Adders Go Forth smashed it! Meg, Alexa, Star and Idris hit the lanes and broke out 3 times in their first race. It was all to play for from then on and they raced hard all day to set a fantastic time of 19.84. They were joined by Koopa and Xavier, once again, who took to the lanes in the warm ups and even Zeus joined them for some run backs to get him used to racing in a competition setting. He didn’t bat an eye at the loud noises. It looks like he’s going to be following his mum in the lanes very soon.
While the dogs had fun in the lanes, the handlers enjoyed curry and cake to celebrate the engagement of Shez and Jamy. Congrats once again guys!
