Kinsley’s racing club members are showing a healthy profit on their seven runners to date.

Owners Association chairman Mark Siddall said: “If the members had packed the dogs to a £1 stake every time they ran, they would be £28 in profit now.

“I have been a little disappointed in the response to the club which only has 15 members.

“But Kinsley is a track where most of the racegoers are already connected to dogs in some way or another, so we were always going to be a bit limited in attracting new people to ownership.

“We’ll get through to September when the two year deal on the first runners comes to an end and make a decision about repeating the idea with some new dogs.”
