Bow is ready to race this Friday!

Here's the race card page from the Woodlands site:- http://woodlandskc.com/P4L8.HTM

The Woodlands may be viewed at onlineracing.tv. I'll post again on the day so you know how to tune in and an approximate time.

Hopefully Keith the announcer will be giving greyhound adoption a plug as well. He quite often does that anyway as he recently adopted his first greyhound, Big Roy, and he spends his time sleeping on the floor during Keith's broadcasts! LOL

As a rough estimate, Bow should be appearing around 9.45pm EST tonight.

Hope there's some supporters out there who will tune in to watch him make his RFA debut!

Races from the Woodlands can be viewed via www.onlineracing.tv - click on the link for Woodlands. You will need Windows Media Player to view as well.

Woodlands does not have any archived race replays like some tracks. I will *attempt* to record the race for those who miss it live. We have permission from onlineracing.tv and The Woodlands to show clips here.

GO BOW!

Bow did us proud to come in third, not the easiest of races for him, and his blanket was flapping around if you watch the slow motion replay! I'm glad he finished racing before the weather really took a turn for the worse as well!

I have recorded some of last night at The Woodlands if you didn't catch it. Keith the announcer gave us lots of mentions and adoption in general, which was great. The recording is on Bow's results page, link below. Warning the recording is about 8 mins long!

Bow does it again! A nice second place on Wed Aug 24.That is two for two in the money for Bow in the start of his RFA career.

He worked really hard for that second place! He drew the 1 box again and I think he does better from an outside draw. He had the rail and then swung wide on the first turn and seemed to be getting passed, but then powered back to the front by the end of the race. I love the fact he never gives up Smile

So yes, he's two for two in the money since joining RFA, and in fact he has hit the board his last ten races! I wish all my racedogs could be this consistent LOL

Keep it up, Bow!
