Thanks Salino they make great pets and are very lazy they love just lying about most of them. Frankiewhippet what's your husband's name and where do you race the dogs it's the injuries that are the worst part of racing but we only went to vet if very serious injury we had ultra sound and lazer machines for treating injuries plus swimming pool and walking machine to get them back to fitness had a great set up also 270 yard gallop slightly uphill grass other trainers came to use it also. We had 30 pups 30 race dogs 4 brood bitches i payed my brother and 3 part time staff to look after them i worked full time with the council but when finished work or time off i was always there keeping everything as i wanted loved it great dogs to work with.

Salino I know the dog very well trained dogs for one of the syndicate that owned the dog and John Daly trained it for them if i remember right. I know the brothers that own the Droopy's kennels in Ireland really well have had bitches breed by there stud dogs great guys to deal with. Our family had great times over the years doing the dogs sadly dad passed away in Sept 2011 then i took seriously ill so gave up the dogs but miss working with them. Now it's garden all the time  which suits me with my illness and loving it putting 100 percent into it as i do with everything in life i've done over the years.
