introducing you to 'Mary'
17 JUNE 2018 (see video here)
Back racing Mary was sent off at 4/1 from trap 3 in A7 grade. She made a good break and her speed up gave her a two length lead at the first bend. She ran well and tried her best to hold off the opposition but was just caught on the run in to finish 2nd in 28.91. Unfortunately soon after this race Mary came into season and so will be off the track for a few weeks.
7 JUNE 2018 (see video here)
Continuing her comeback from injury Mary ran a two dog 480 metre trial and showed good early pace (4.17 split) to lead at the first bend and led all the way and finished in 28.91 calc breaking the 29 second mark for the first time in her career.
24 MAY 2018 (see video here)
Mary was given an extra week to fully recover from her injury and today had a two bend solo trial at Towcester. She ran well and strong and finished in 15.73, by far her fastest time for two bends.
10 APRIL 2018
Mary was taken to Romford for a trial with a view to entering a puppy open competition. She checked badly at the first two bends and was fortunately caught down the back straight before she could do too much damage. She was found to be suffering from a torn monkey muscle and will be off the track for about 4 weeks.
7 APRIL 2018 (see video here)
Promoted to A7 grade after her recent wins Mary lined up against clubmate Safffrons Honey on the Saturday morning card. She was sent off 9/4 favourite from trap 3 but HOney beat her for pace to the first bend. She ran on strongly down the back straight to challenge him at the 3rd bend but could not pass and she was eventually swallowed up on the run in to finish 6th in 29.31.
31 MARCH 2018 (see video here)
Still in A8 on Saturday morning after last week's win but a higher quality race with all the other dogs faster than her and she was sent off 3/1 from trap 1. She made her break and with all the other runners middle/wide she had a clear run around the bends and stretched her lead. She started to tire on the run in but carried on to win by a length in her fastest time of 29.18.
24 MARCH 2018 (see video here)
Another Saturday morning run in A8 grade and Mary was sent off 6/4 favourite from trap 3. She showed her early pace to lead to half way. The pack was closing going into the third bend and Mary was clipped from behind twice around the bends but she was determined to keep ahead and did so to win in 29.45.
17 MARCH 2018 (see video here)
On a freezing cold Saturday morning meeting at Towcseter Mary was up to A8 grade and was sent off from trap 2 at 7/4 favourite. The 3 dog broke well and led all the way but Mary showed good pace and determination to rail well at the first bends and to get into 2nd place down the back straight. She finished 2nd in 29.32.
11 MARCH 2018 (see video here)
Up to A9 grade on the Sunday card Mary was sent off at 5/2 from trap 2. She showed good early pace to lead at the first bend and went on to record her second consecutive win in 29.21.

After a couple of weeks off the track Mary had a solo 260 metre spin and recorded her best time of 16.06.
17 FEBRUARY 2018 (see video here)
First race A10 again on Saturday evening and Mary duly gave us her first career win. At 5/2 from trap 2 she broke well but was held out by the 1 dog at the first bend. Running wide she was passed by the 1 and 3 dogs down the back straight but fortunately they got in a tangle at the 3rd bend and Mary was quick to take advantage and was 4-5 lengths clear at the 4th bend. She ran on well to win by 3 1/2 lengths in 29.48.
10 FEBRUARY 2018 (see video here)
Again in A10 on Saturday evening originally hopes were high for Mary from trap 3 but a reserve was brought into trap 2 and made hot favourite and duly won by over 5 lengths! Mary was sent off at 4/1 but was unable to get a clear run to the first bend. She turned clear 2nd to the favourite and challenged down the back straight but had to check at the 3rd bend. She tired a bit on the run in and finished 4th in 29.99.
2 FEBRUARY 2018 (see video here)
In her second race Mary again ran in A10 grade. She was sent off at 5/2 from trap 2. From a level break she showed good pace and determination to lead at the first bend. She continued in the lead and held off a challenge from the 3 dog at the third bend. She battled on but was eventually caught by the 3 dog on the run in and finished a gallant one length 2nd in 29.64. Great progress.
20 JANUARY 2018 (see video here)
In her very first race Mary took her place in A10 grade on Saturday evening. She was sent off at 6/1 from trap 3. She showed good early pace and railed well in a clear 2nd place at the first two bends. She was passed by the hot favourite going into the third bend and tired on the run in and finished 5th in 29.93.
10 JANUARY 2018
In her final qualifying trial Mary broke well in a 3 dog trial and led to 3/4 and finished 2nd in 29.90. She is now ready for her first race.
3 JANUARY 2018 (see video here)
After a bad bout of coughing Mary is back on track for another trial. She ran in a three dog 260 metres trial from trap 5. She ran and challenged well and finished a close 3rd in 16.17.
6 DECEMBER 2017 (see video here)
Mary had her first four bend 3 dog trial and after bumping her way around the first two bends with the 3 dog she eventually had to give way and ran in 3rd place in a time of 29.87.

A slow break in her first 3 dog trial under lights saw Mary in arrears and although running well she finished 3rd in 16.26.
