His Stranraer kennels produced the first winner in the opening sprint race when Hot Tim cruised home at 6/4 to take the honours by half a length.

The two-year-old dog was chased home by Oh Gosh, a four-year-old dog from Tony Hopper’s Workington kennels.

There was a much wider winning margin in the next sprint race with Hornby’s Horny Eske storming across the line to win by an impressive 5.5 lengths.

The two-year-old dog’s strongest challenger was Mork, a similar aged dog from Willie Hyslop of Kilmarnock.

In the final race, over the 470 metres distance, Macca Moose, owned and trained by David Bowes of Cleator Moor, won by a 2.25 lengths winning margin.

He finished ahead of fellow 2/1 shot Ruth’s Baby, a three-year-old dog from Ruth and Davie Crosbie of Wamphray, near Moffat.
