Rivals set to clash in north east

Just four days after a thrilling Greyhound Derby final was won in fairytale style by 16-1 chance Salad Dodger, the big-race bandwagon moves on apace to Newcastle.

There are two valuable invitations sponsored by Alan Findlay’s Pin Point Recruitment company as a part of an all-open race card this evening.

Paul Young, the Essex-based trainer of Derby runner-up Droopys Ward, is heading to north-east with a team of greyhounds including highly-rated Jaytee Lightning, Bubbly Storm and the popular 2013 Derby runner-up Airlie Impact.

The card has the support of Ian Lavery, the MP for Northumberland constituency Wansbeck, who thanked sponsor Findlay for supporting the sport in the north-east and around the country.

He said: “Alan is a fellow greyhound owner and we are both fortunate to have had some top-class dogs in the past.

“He has grown his sponsorship portfolio within the sport, backing some major events, but Wednesday will be special for greyhound fans in his home town.”
