Our July meeting at Brands Hatch was well attended on a sunny if inevitably windy day. Thanks go to all our regulars, both Afghans and other breeds, for their continuing support.
To start with the Afghan results this time, fastest green dogwas Charlie Brown in 28.48, so nice to see Ray and Sue travelling all the way from Northampton. Their most attractive puppy, Polo, very much enjoyed his puppy dashes, a future racer for sure. Fastest green bitch was Tula Mugford in 28.60, not her fastest time ever, but she is recovering from a season, and apparently, until she saw the race track, didn't want to do anything at all! Fastest yellow dog was the consistent Hack Wickens in 25.20, fastest bitch, his sister Niffy in 26.28.
Fastest blue dog was Smoke Fincham in 25.52, bitch Tula who speeded up considerably to achieve a time of 25.78. Fastest red dog was Judah Murphy in 24.72, bitch Lizzie Odell in 2419, also giving her the fastest veteran time. Fastest pink dog and fastest short distance dog of the day was Morse Odell in 23.54, and purple bitch and fastest overall was Kira Odell in 21.36. Veteran Lizzie also later did a purple time of 22.61.
Only two 460ms were run today, with Axel Odell taking gold dog in 38.66, and Kira gold bitch in 39.32.
For the other breeds, lurcher Dexter Gardiner did his usual amazing 660m runs, his fastest time being 51.63. Lurcher Alfie Gardiner achieved 25.15 over 260m and Saluki Jade Gardiner's fastest 260 time was 22.05.
The gorgeous Silken Windhounds were back again, the fastest over 260m being Fira Grist in 22.04.
Last but certainly not least, Graham Reeve’s two Pharoahs did a 260m run with Kermit getting the faster time of 21.26, Kurti doing 23.78.
