I suppose to be successful at the open racing game, you need to be able to source top class dogs on a permanent basis.unless you have very deep pockets its nigh on impossible to be recognised. you NEED to have a statement dog or two now and again. in this area, there are a number of good class competent trainers.charlie lynch,Julie Bateson,our own brian thompson, June maccombe,pat rosney, john walton,Kathy harris and many others of which Ernie is one. Sunday would be a good and ideal way of .end of bags go into introducing open racing. maybe only a couple or so to get it established.then see if it progresses. it would utilise an underused stadium.Sunday dinners ,tote etc etc.endless possibilities. .WHY IS IT ONLY SKINT PEOPLE GET THE BEST IDEAS.
Unfortunately Benny, when the track are struggling to get sponsorship for some of the biggest competitions in the calendar, I don't think they'll be in a rush to introduce such an initiative as this- for all as you say it would be a breath of fresh air to liven up some mundane BAGS cards
Apologies for hijacking the thread, but it would give a dog such as yours Jimmy a nice opportunity aside from tricky A1's
