A few absentees, with this awful Corvid-19 virus I do not blame people staying close to home. I was really pleased with the quality of all the dogs, and I especially enjoyed the Racing & Coursing classes, always supporting our club with their beautiful hounds. Disappointing that there are no puppies in the ring at the moment, let’s hope this changes in the near future. The Greyhound committee were very busy, with lots of positive comments to the changes the club have made following a survey last year. The food was excellent with everyone having time to socialise, hopefully this will continue. Thank you to all exhibitors for bringing your wonderful greyhounds I really did enjoy myself.
JD, 1, Mr G & Mrs E Boggart, Ina’s Fashion Exalted at Incitatus large enough boy of 15 months. Red and white parti, plenty of bone and substance. Would like smaller ears. Long enough neck leading into well laid shoulder. Straight front and lovely depth of chest, would like elbows tucked under more, this will come with age. Good length of rib, needs to settle in topline. Well bent stifle, correct muscular thighs, moving dogs inside especially when excitable can make assessing movement difficult, but you could tell at times when settled, he had a good reach in front and plenty of rear propulsion.
