3rd June Sunday Moreton in Marsh Cricket Cub
The Whippet Club Racing Association (WRCA) are holding their second Championship meeting of 2007 at Moreton in Marsh.
This meeting is straight championship event over a 150 yard straight track and the dogs will run in weight groups, running off level or scratch. The races are run on a knockout basis with the first two dogs in each race going through to the next round.
It is expected that approx. 150 dogs will run and whippets can race up to the age of 10 if it remains fit and many do so.
Spectators are welcome and there is no charge for admission. However there is no betting allowed and no prize money awarded. It is a purely amateur sport and the only prize to be won is a rosette or a trophy.
The 3rd Championship Meeting in 2007 will be held at Moreton on August 5th and the 4th Championship Meeting at Moreton on October 14th.
How about this for a different sport and it will cost you nothing to watch!
