SA Coursing Double To Ben Rawlings
Written By Judi Hurley, Virginia GOTBA Coursing Correspondent Monday 9th July 2012
On a 10-race program, Ben Rawlings led in a double when Bandana Girl and Call Me Chaos showed their liking for straight track racing.
Pedro Pie narrowly defeated Premier Strike giving Alisha Sutherland a well deserved winner. Dale Martin returned to coursing with Byron defeating Galapagos; however Angela Modra tasted victory when Only Jess defeated Jesse Be Cool.
Bryan Styles patience was rewarded when Clayâ€™s Choice defeated Emerley Lover. Ken Gillâ€™s Canâ€™t Be Late (probably named after Ken) defeated Bark Obama. Artie Verhoefâ€™s Cape Demand showed Karamel Kist a clean pair of heels and last but not least, Carlos Kist defeated Texas Fire in the last.
Owners/Trainers are reminded that there are only 3 more racing dates prior to the Waterloo, Oaks and Derby â€“ all these events are 16-dog which means 4 runs for the final pair.
The Club has scheduled some Prelude races for the 12 August meeting and these will be 8-dog events to help prepare your charges for the additional runs. This meeting is 3 weeks prior to our final event to assist you with a reasonable break before our final meeting.
Nominations for our next meeting close with GRSA at 9.00 am on Wednesday 18 July.
