Ray Burgess Goes Home With Four Winners
Written By Judi Hurley, Virginia GOTBA Coursing Correspondent Monday 11th June 2012
A good mix of greyhounds and some very competitive racing saw another 11 happy winners on the day. Ray Burgess made his trip from Port Pirie a welcome one when he went home with 4 winners â€“ Rise A Knight, Pure Flash, Burrendong Way and Long Board.
Black and Blue returned to the winnerâ€™s circle for Damien Mills and ran the best of day in 15.06. Neil and Teresa Mann enjoyed the wins of Nirimba Sapphire and Kreuzer Waite; whilst Carole Scott was happy with the return of Go Harvey Go. Noel Bland and Paul Turner also greeted the judge with Big Wheels and Celtique Belle.
Our next meeting is scheduled for 24 June and all grades will be catered for â€“ remember, dependent upon nominations received. With only 4 more meetings before the 2012 Waterloo Cups, owners/trainers are reminded that greyhounds must have competed twice on the coursing to be eligible. Nominations for 24 June close with GRSA at 9 am on Wednesday 20 June.
