With two in the second Semi Final, all we were hoping for is qualification for both and we were not disappointed. Rural Hawaii, who has been one of the best dogs in training for the last 18 months, led up on the outside and made the bend in front of Holycross Leah and Sidarian Pearl. This is the way it stayed as all 3 held their positions throughout the contest, despite Hawaii doing his usual heart in mouth moment, swinging wide round the final turn! Straightening for home, he galloped home hard and crossed the line two and half lengths in front, stopping the clock in 29.58. With Pearl back in third spot, it capped a wonderful night for the team to get all 3 of our Semi Finalists through to the Final.
