Racing Rain Check and Top Tips

Unfortunately we arrived at the race track yesterday to learn that racing was cancelled due to the track being waterlogged. However, the good news is that everyone is working hard to make sure the track is in top notch condition for next Sunday’s Derby and Fun Day. So regardless of weather conditions next week we’re guaranteed to have a great day.

Always one to turn a setback into an advantage, our little Beanie took the opportunity to flirt with the fastest whippet in the club and weedle a few training tips out of him. Now obviously we can’t divulge training secrets, but suffice to say we headed straight for Irvine beach for a serious workout. ;)

Lots of people have been asking us for more details about the Caledonian Thistle Pedigree Whippet Racing Club Fun Day.  So here it is again:

Whippet, Lurcher, Beagle racing and even Ferret racing!; Shows for all breeds and ages of dog; Any breed of dog can have a go at chasing the lure; raffles; hot and cold snacks; A great doggy day out for the whole family.

How to get there……

Inch Farm is close to Longannet Power Station so if you’re using Sat Nav or AA/RAC route finder head for that (FK10 4AA).

After you cross Kincardine bridge keep following the road around to the right (following the coast). After a short distance you’ll come to a roundabout. Take the third exit (towards Longannet Power Station).

A short distance down the road (perhaps 100m) you’ll see a farm road on the right. There will be cars parked in the field and Whippets & Beagles. Turn down the farm road and then an immediate left onto a muddy, bumpy track. Go straight past the little bit of parking on the left and drive into the field to park.
