LIXNAW saturday

Its my first visit to Lixnaw. I was told they have been working hard down there and I must say the work is paying off.  The whole setup is excellent.  The grounds were perfect and the hares were strong.  Great days coursing!!..........I wish I was back there in the morning but im booked to go to Limerick City.

Its all set for some great Finals in the morning

ALL AGE CUP
White Bar
Catunda Ashmore

Bexhill Bolt
Monster Catch

Yeats Dawn
Lystoll Lark

Maneens Bonde
Rusheen Sean

For me the top half of the Cup seems to be the stronger.


Catunda Ashmore now in his third season went up well



Bexhill Bolt

a battle between these two at top of card perhaps..............The bottom of the card was track heavy but thats to take nothing away from Rusheen Sean who went up well

Glin View Battle
Newinn All In

 Resolute Rose

Nice to see a Swanky runner going so well............could be a contender.............big fan of the Swanky line


A bit of a look at the grounds.............well worth a visit

Behind the slippers hut is a house.................by the time I realised it was the canteen and not someones house they had sold 5 gallons of soup and not a sip for me..................great inside very comfy...............with first class catering




and the hare accomodation is first class too...............and this showed by the quality hares we saw today
