Congratulations to Wes and his team of Quito, Olivia, Chica, Boondocks, Biscuit, Ernie, Five, Rodney, Ginger and Scooby! They crossed the line at 3.38 this morning to finish 4th! The whole team, including Nacho, is happy at home now after a warm meal and are all curled up in their boxes sleeping.
We are so excited and proud of him and the team, and to be honest a little emotional about the yearlings becoming “proper” race dogs. Those of you who have followed SP Kennel for a while will know that these five had a pretty difficult start to life (click here for some background) so to see them grown-up to be fit, healthy racing dogs brings tears to our eyes.
Their run time from the Lodge to the Store was a quick 5 hours 10 minutes!
The finish line was dark so unfortunately we were unable to get any footage. But, head over the the TRDAM Facebook page where Julien Schroder has posted some fantastic pics of all our teams.
We will get Wes to do a dog by dog wrap-up in the next few days so you can hear how everyone fared. But, for right now, everyone is enjoying a good night sleep!
Congrats to neighbors Tom, Judy and Maliko for their fantastic races!
