Every RFA hound, with the exception of Betty whos is stranded by the floods at Wheeling, will be running Friday evening!

No Cover Becki has her first ever official schooling race. Whistler's Stud also has a schooling race.

Whistler's Miss will be in action at Derby Lane, Whistler's Run at Southland, and Mandys Choo Choo makes her first run since owner Henry Howe announced she would be joining RFA.

Best of luck everyone Smile

Choo Choo runs the Jacksonville circuit. Right now she's at the Orange Park Kennel Club - they race seasonally Sept - end May.
The track at Jacksonville races June - Sept.

I'm assuming that when Orange Park season ends she will race at Jacksonville.

You can check out both tracks at the website www.jaxkennel.com

Right. The Jacksonville Circuit operates three meets, two at Orange Park and one at Jacksonville. It once was at three tracks---the third was at St. Johns, but that track is closed to live racing. One of the OP meets is still called the St. Johns Meet. St. John's is an OTB facility only now.

The Jax Circuit doesn't get the credit it should---I rate it as a top-5 track behind Wheeling, Lincoln, Derby Lane and Bluffs Run and ahead of Raynham, Tri-State, Southland, Hollywood/Flagler, Gulf, Palm Beach and Phoenix.

OK, the Derby Lane schooling results are in!

Looks like Stud might have been scratched as he didn't appear to run.

No Cover Becki finished 4th out of 7 dogs in her first offical schooling race - a great start. The chartwriters comments were 'impeded 1st, gaining'.

That's a good sign!

4th place for Whistler's Miss at Derby Lane - in the money at least!

Btw - ALL of the RFA Hounds were running last night! Wheeling is operational again and a lot of dogs were schooled due to the lay-off (while Wheeling coped with the floods).

Whistler's Betty ran a schooling race and finished a nice 3rd so hopefully we should be seeing her back in action next week.

I wonder what the chances are of us having every RFA hound run on the same night again? Smile
