The 2008 season has come to a close, and we here at Shadow Run want to wish all a very Happy and prosperous New Year.
This last year has been an exciting year for us, in the NOTRA arena. We started the year with 5 of our whippets competing against the best the United States had to offer, and they were great whippets.
- Shadow Run Sun Blocker not only finished his ORC title but ended the year in the #14th spot in the National Point Standings of NOTRA. He also finished a third in the Whippet Derby out of close to 100 whippets in Roy, WA and won a 1st place at the match in the Race Champions class.
- Shadow Run Solar Eclipse too finished her ORC title and competed at the Nationals in Roy and won a 1st place in the Race Champions class of the conformation match.
- Shadow Run Sun Burn, finished his ORC title this last fall and did Al Gersich proud.
And our lead whippet, Farseer Nacho Of Shadow Run out did all of our guy’s. Not only did he finish his ORC title, but we just got the NOTRA final standings and Nacho finished #2 in the top ten.
- We have a new and up and up and comer, Shadow Run Obsidian Night (OB). Starting the middle of September in NOTRA he is doing all right. As of the second week in November, OB has acquired 12 of the 15 points he needs to be awarded his ORC title and he just turned 14 months old. So next year for OB?
- Also in our team of whippets we have some ORC point winners, D.J. & O’Brady for the 2008 season.
Now for the newest pair to the team are the Nacho kids, Marco and Tango, watch for them after July 17th, for they will be getting their feet wet on the NOTRA Oval track.
Photos enclosed are the new ORC titles for the 2008 season.
