Profile

TOPSTAR VIXEN (Vicky)

vicky180916Big Black Bitch, 28 k, whelped 17th May ’14. Pictured (left) Sun 18th Sept ’16.  Having won 5 from 9 races (4/1  8/1  14/1  10/1  5/1  )at one point, she then went into season when ready for her next race and was withdrawn. Suffered an injury and then was off track for 5 months then one race and another injury and off track another 5 months.

Vicky did come back racing again but just wasn’t the same dog and so a decision has been made to retire her. Unfortunately the day after retiring she went into season so hasn’t been able to be spayed as yet prior to being found a good home and sofa to call her own. She is a very happy go lucky sort of dog and always wants to please. A particular favourite of Alan’s and one whom he had intended bringing home at the end of her career. However, reality of having Jimmy at home and him not being the best of bed fellows with other dogs makes it an impossibility.

YVONNE BELL

Trainer

YVONNE BELL

 Yvonne (pictured left on photo alongside racehorse trainer Rebecca Menzies, myself, racehorse stud owner and former ladies amateur champion rider Lucy Horner and racehorse trainer Lucinda Egerton on a Christmas night out at Sunderland dogs) needs no introduction to those who follow the greyhounds as she has had a lifetime around them. Her parents were very active on the flapping circuit and Yvonne (married to John) has been training in her own right for well over 30 years now. Her daughter Melanie is married to Newcastle trainer Jimmy Fenwick and her other daughter Carolyn goes racing everyday with Yvonne. Grandson Lewis is an active fund raiser (very successfully) for the retired greyhounds, as well as being very keen on the dogs when school time permits and he has his licence for leading up the dogs which is a big help for Yvonne who has 60 + dogs in her care and is contracted to the Sunderland greyhound track. Best dog over the years has probably been Littlemoor Larry who won the Gold Cup at Sunderland. However, some of the best moments have been when seeing dogs she has raised from pups or purchased as pups climbing through the grades for their owners. Yvonne remains as competitive today as the day she started out.

Yvonne has a continuous high winning % strike rate (around 25% average).

SUNDERLAND GREYHOUND STADIUM

Based on the North West of Sunderland, it has easy access from the A19. The track had a major upgrade in the 1990's and is now owned since 2017 by ARC who own several horse racetracks including the local Newcastle and Sedgefield tracks purchased it along with Newcastle greyhound track from William Hill Bookmakers. For graded greyhound racing, it is good prize money and two races taking centre stage for the Festival of Racing Finals Night meeting in July is the William Hill Classic (£15,000) and the William Hill Grand Prix (£25,000) plus an excellent supporting race card worth many thousands. Racing at Sunderland takes place on Tuesday afternoons, Wed evenings, Thurs mornings, Frid night and Sun mid day. There are many offers that take place with food and drinks. There is a very smart 150 cover restaurant overlooking the track and again there are many value packages available if booking a table. Racing itself is competitive and distances raced are 261 / 450 / 640 /metres on a circuit of 378 metres. It tends to favour the sharp dogs. Sunderland management have been very good with PANTHER, giving owners many privileges. You will be registered at the track as an owner if taking up a share in a dog with ourselves and receive ALL ownership privileges and discounts.
