Andover Autumn Open Sunday 13th September

We held our Autumn Open last Sunday and once again we were witness to some top quality racing from some of the best racing whippets in the country. The distance was 180 yards at a handicap of 3/4yd/lb for Elite and Maiden groups and 150 yards at 1/2yd/lb and a yard per year for Veterans. Many thanks to all of you that joined us, we welcomed racers from all corners of the UK from as far apart as Cornwall and the North. Thanks also to all of those that helped out by doing jobs during the day, with a particular thanks to Doug and the team for getting the track into superb condition ahead of the open. Congratulations to all runners and finalists with a special congratulations to our twelve group winners and Elite supreme winner Gem Rock Nugget, Maiden supreme winner Bombay Bad Boy and Veteran supreme winner RCh VCh Sapphire Queens Topaz. We look forward to welcoming you back to Andover in 2016.
