[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="Silent Brethren Leads In To The Home Straight"][/caption]Uralla trainers were well and truly amongst the spoils at Saturday’s Armidale Greyhound Racing Club meet.
Michelle Shambler bagged two of the ten-race program, with her dogs Killer Queen and Swanky winning the third and ninth races respectively.
Fellow Uralla trainer Ross Clay took the first race.
Maureen West, from Beechwood, also trained two winners on the day.
Club president Greg Nordstrom said the meeting was a success.
“It was a good day, except for the cold wind,” he said.
“There was some good racing, the track specialist King’s Man got up again and Maureen West did well, she’s always a trainer to follow here.
“It was good to see the locals getting amongst it as well.”
Nordstrom said the club’s next meeting would be in late September, and plans were underway to stage heats for the Maitland Country Cup final to be held in November.
