Excellent entry for Sunderland puppy comp

The increase in prize money making every ARC sponsored Category Two event worth £7,500 to the winner seems to have born fruit once again with a very decent entry for the ARC Puppy Cup at Sunderland. (It was worth £6K last year)

The track announced a full entry of 24 runners which included a significant number of Southern based youngsters. They include David Mullins’ 28.98 Hove winner March On Freddie. While Midlands based Untold Quetzal also has sub-27 trial form.

Phil Milner’s ‘Keefills’ are finally starting to compete with pups with less experience than they have.Needless to say though the locals are also extremely strong, and none more so than Tom Heilbron with the exciting Untold Rubel, who already boasts a 27.25 run for Doncaster’s 450m.

Racing Manager Joe Frelford will also be pleased with the seeding split which reads: 9 railers, 9 middles and 6 wides. Also, although ARC have long since dropped their ‘must trial’ requirement, all 24 entries have trialled at the track.
