Poised Success put in an eye-catching run on last Thursday
afternoon’s card when romping home by more than four lengths in her
A5 race over 380 metres.
This performance was significant given that on the same
afternoon, we had some of our top class dogs running over the same
distance in the Eaggstravaganza series.
Ryves Rock, who is one of our fastest dogs, recorded 23.68
seconds in his race and is a top grade A1 greyhound.

Following on from my report on the recent auction here of Irish

50 dogs which were up for sale.
On auction day he recorded the fastest time and the same has
applied on both visits here for his trials. He has bags of
potential and is one to look out for.
My own purchase has managed to do the grading time but needs now
to win a trial to get onto the race card. More on her to
Royal Posh and Frontiers, who I also had my eye on at the
auction, have both managed to do the required times and the former
has won a trial so we can expect her to be racing soon.
Frontiers will win a trial soon and will join her as one to keep
an eye on when they make their debuts.
