GREYHOUNDS: Hornby kennels hits top form

Section:  Sport  | Tags: , , , ,

A SOUTH west Scotland kennels is enjoying a surge of success at Gretna greyhound racing.

Stephen Hornby of Portpatrick, near Stranraer, who has family links with Eastriggs, produced two sprint winners at Friday’s meeting at Halcrow Stadium.

His two-year-old dog Hot Tim edged ahead in the home straight to secure his first victory on the track by .5 of a length.

He snatched the glory from Rab Hyslop’s four-year-old Hawick dog Zig Zag.

Next success for the Hornby kennels came in the 8.30 race when two-year-old dog Horny Bull took the honours by .5 of a length.

He finished half a length in front of Diamond Katie, a three-year-old bitch from Tony Hopper from Workington.

One of the best performances of the night came from Papa, a two-year-old dog from Pat Kennedy of Coatbridge, which flew round the track to win over 280 metres by 5.5 lengths.

The strongest challenge came from Rick Nelson’s 18-month-old Glasgow dog Another Wons.
