Holy **** balls! Mad amount of tracks. I didn't know there was one in Dagenham either. Things you learn.

Ah I see. From how you said it, I thought it was something that you had previously given up rather than being forced to now.
Would have been interested as an insight in to what your individual reasons were, to see if others may have shared the same reasons.

One thing is for sure...there are going to be plenty of dogs competing for very few runs down the South East now.

The A8s are going to be run by A3s

Must also add that both the Smoke tracks are now very tight....with shedloads of trouble on the first bend. Plenty of owners wont be relishing their prize mutts going lame around Rommers and Crayford.

Sadly the knob that is Vinny Jones would be a shoe-in......although a certain Jools Holland owns dogs

Hersham Hounds are going to be busy.

If you're thinking about it, greyhounds are incredibly docile and will happily sleep for twenty hours a day.
