Hi all, Here are some pictures of Borna Karma at her kennels in Essex kindly taken by our resident top photographer Darren Kelly.
16 November 2012
Below is yesterday’s race video of Karma winning in the Top Grade A1 Race @ Romford.
For those of you who can’t view it, here’s the link to youtube…
Oi Oi Karma girl ! “A STAR IS BORNa”

7 November 2012
Below is monday night’s race video of our very own BORNA KARMA.
Even the commentator gave us a mention after the race.
Here’s to The Old Bell Gate Greyhound Syndicate and a bright future for Karma.
If anyone would like any tickets for our next Night Out at the Dogs on Saturday 24th November then let me know ASAP as seats on the coach are filling up fast.

Below is Buster’s first ever race on video for those who couldn’t make it.
Won’t be long before he runs again and please be aware that in greyhound racing you will only get a maximum of 2 days notice of a intended race.
Obviously when we arrange our Saturday night out at Romford we will inform them that we would like him to run on that night especially for us to watch him.
He ran quite well considering he missed his break completely and as you can see on the video he was forced to check up round the first bend and what they missed on the comments is that he got baulked by trap 6 on the final bend which was hard to see from the camera angle.
He’ll have learnt a lot from this first race and hopefully it won’t be long before he starts winning races.

30 August 2012
Hi all, here is a copy of last Trial Results from Romford.
The going was given as +10, so his final calculated time was 25.37 seconds for the 400m’s
He’s got 1 Trial left before he qualifies for a Race.

21 August 2012

Hi all, Buster had his first ever trial under rules at Romford Greyhound Stadium today.He did 25.82 seconds for the 400m course (4.03 sectional which is measured from Trap to Winning Line)
His comments were “middle to wide” (where he raced on the track)
That’s a satisfactory start for a young pup and we can look forward to him showing improvement in his next trial there where he will have a Mixed dog trial (3 dogs).
Will keep you posted next Tuesday evening
Oi Oi Buster boy!!!

19 August 2012

Hi there, Just to let you know that all of Buster’s paperwork has been completed and he can now have his first ever trial under rules at ROMFORD GREYHOUND STADIUM this Tuesday.
He will have a full lap solo over 400m’s.
On Monday you’ll be able to view the advanced trial sheet at www.romfordgreyhoundstadium.co.uk
Click on Advanced Runners, put in Tuesday’s date and click on Trial Advanced.
I’ll email you his time and comments he gets after Tuesday.
Many thanks

Here’s a few pics from this morning of Buster at Orchard Kennels kindly taken by syndicate member Darren Kelly.
Buster will be having his first trial at Romford Greyhound Stadium shortly, so I’ll send a email out when that’s confirmed.













6 August 2012

Hello all, Just wanted to let you all know that our very own Racing Greyhound HEROES QUEST (Buster) has now completed his schooling at Paul Sallis’s kennels in Derbyshire and arrived at his new kennels in Essex at Jim Reynold’s in preparation to his trials and then proper races at Romford Stadium.
If there’s any questions at all you would like to ask about greyhound racing in general, then I’ll answer them either via email, text message or phone call.
Attached are some pics I took of him on Sunday morning at the kennels. This is the only day in the week that owners can visit the kennels and take their greyhounds out for a walk in the surrounding fields around Orchard Kennels near South Ockendon. So if you’d like to do so (not all at once obviously), then let me know.
We will be looking to organise a coach trip on a Saturday night to the races at Romford when Buster has had his qualifying trials and has got used to the track, hopefully fingers crossed around September/October time. Hopefully after his had his 3 qualifying trials, which are on a Tuesday daytime at Romford, he’d have done a quick enough time to qualify for a race there.

View his last schooling trial @ Bicester, which he won by 8.5 lengths from another pup of the same age below…

Buster will be on the move next Wednesday. He’ll be leaving his Derbyshire kennels & will be taken on the next step of his journey down to Essex where he’ll make his home…

Buster had his 1st ever 2-dog trial @ Bicester today, which now completes his schooling. Big thank you to Paul & Esther.
