It was another busy weekend at the kennels with runners the length of the country over the weekend. It started on Friday at Harolds Cross where Sidarian Lisa and Rockburst Vienna went in the same Corn Cuchulainn 750 Semi-Final. A messy race, where both Lisa and Vienna were involved in the trouble, saw Lisa qualify for next week’s final after running on to grab the final qualifying spot.
Also on Friday we had 4 runners in the ECC Timber Champion Bitch 550, a title we are looking to defend having won with Rockburst Pearl last year. Coolavanny Pandy held her rails pitch round the opening turn to take the lead up from the second turn. She held on well despite having not run for over a month and will improve for the run. Ardnacrusha Lady once again had to dig deep when riding a bumpy opening turn to qualify in 3rd spot in her heat to progress whilst Brenval Star was also a qualifier from her heat when also finishing 3rd.
