Defending Champion Bellmore Sally Takes Her Chance in the Golden Jacket

The deadline for entries to the prestigious Premier Greyhound Racing Golden Jacket, offering a £20,000 prize to the winner, closes today at NOON. Expecting a high-quality entry, the two-time winner Bellmore Sally is already confirmed for the competition. Trainer Jimmy Fenwick mentioned that although Sally has lost some early speed over the first four bends this year, she seems to be staying stronger. Fenwick expressed optimism about Sally's performance, indicating that while the Golden Jacket is a priority, her main focus this year will be the TV Trophy at Oxford.

Settling into Retirement

Hang On Mart, owned by Lee Pitman and trained by Peter Harnden, was recently retired due to an Achilles tendon injury. Peter shared that the greyhound, known affectionately as Queenie, settled into her retirement home remarkably quickly. Despite missing racing, Queenie has found a loving home, and Peter is confident she will have a great time with the couple who have previously provided a home for retired greyhounds.
