Fantastic pictures. Great to see my dogs are in good hands whilst the rest of the Country is on lockdown. The Training game certainly is a labour of love and the old adage of “You get out what you put in” will definitely hold Gary in good stead once normal service resumes. Hard work always reaps its rewards.
I’m a regular Belle Vue attendee and greyhound owner. I have dogs with Gary Griffiths. As you are aware trainers have been trialing dogs there in recent weeks. It must be hard for all trainers & kennel hands to keep motivated over the last 10 weeks.
Gary Griffiths, my trainer, has been exceptional in keeping in touch with what’s going on most days and has taken the time to improve his facilities for the dogs.
His continuous hard worked has obviously paid off. As from the first 2 trial session several of his dogs have recorded brilliant sprint times Rockmount Buster 15.19 last Wednesday one tick behind the very useful pup Bills Direction. Hazeldene Chip, clearly not a sprinter 15.27 (FTOTD)
I think he should have a mention in the Star for his skill in keeping the dogs ticking over and producing some excellent times. Also I believe the track staff at BV have got the track spot on in this hot weather
