Keeping up with the Racing Action at Manukau

Friday 15th December

What a difference a few weeks make, we were wondering when the rain would stop and now we are sweltering under very hot dry conditions.  The last couple of weeks has really confirmed that we did the right thing a few years back in putting the bore down and installing two large holding tanks that are also topped up by rain water from the roof.

At present there are tens of thousands of litres of water being applied to our track to keep the moisture levels up.  Last Sunday alone, there were 35,000 litres applied before the races started and more during the meeting to keep the moisture levels up.  We generally applying these levels in January but during December is unusual.

Racing this Week

This Sunday is our Founders Day race meeting commencing the Club’s 71st anniversary.  We have a nice 13 race card, starting at 1.15pm.

The exciting bitch, Christiane Cyborg well be making her 603m debut from the two box in the Dogzone Distance (race 8 at 3.17pm).  Many are looking forward to seeing her staying potential.  The other feature is the Founders Day Trophy (Race 12 at 4.27pm. This has drawn a field full of speed, so a great contest looks on.  The Founders Day Stakes (C3/4 527m) has drawn a quality field and that to will be a good contest.

Liz Whelan

Liz is leaving Trackside Television in early January and will be relocating across the Tasman.  As today is Liz’s last opportunity to attend one of our race meetings prior to her departure we have named a race in her honour.  We will also make a presentation to her acknowledging her tremendous contribution to the greyhound code in the presentation of our Group and Feature race meetings on Trackside Television.  We thank Liz and extend our best wishes to her for her future ventures.

Don't forget next week we race again at Manukau for a Thursday 21st December.  This is a daytime meeting commencing at 12.10pm.

Note there will be no meeting next Sunday.  There Waikato GRC staged their traditional Christmas Eve meeting at Cambridge on Sunday the 24th December.

We look forward to seeing you all on Sunday afternoon for the Greyhound action.
