Until very recently there has not been much opportunity to race our Silken Windhounds, however since 2014 we have competed in Straight Flat Racing, Straight Hill Racing and on the Oval Track.
In 2015 the BSFA invited Silken's to join in the last 3 meets of the year, holding a mini league over these final events. We were also invited to participate in the Otmoore Whippet Endurance Stakes, with a section specifically for Silkens. Kusbudar achieved outstanding (see below).
For 2016 the BSFA agreed the Silken Windhound could participate in the full season with Beaux taking top lure coursing dog - so proud - but this achievement has been topped for 2017 with Beaux being awarded SW Lure Courser of the Year, and father, River, being runner up. In addition Layla, a relative newcomer to racing, was Best Bitch at the UKSWC Annual Track Event.
There were opportunities at other venues also, too many to mention. We now look forward to 2018.
