Viking Jack’s Final Race Saturday

This is the end of the most amazing journey, Viking Jack will retire from racing on Saturday, at Wimbledon on the biggest stage of all, Derby Final’s night.

What a greyhound Viking Jack has been! SIX, yes six Category One Finals and the most amazing career. When he arrived in 2013, we hoped he might be good and it was only when he had his first run that we knew what we had. He was bumped and barged and finished third. He won his next race with ease and started a wonderful journey that I am sure will never be repeated as long as I have greyhounds.

I can tell you if it is it will be with a son of Jack. He goes to stud and my plan is to have a litter of pups with Viking Jack and our bitch Viking Cheryl.┬áViking Racing will be offering syndicates for the litter. Why buy one greyhound when you can have a share in a whole litter! Jack now goes to stud, well he isn’t going anywhere, he stays where he is at Jim’s and will stand there, York’s finest stud dog. Here is a video I have put together of Jack’s career…YOUTUBE CLICK HERE

Hopefully there is one more chapter to add on Saturday night. He runs in a vetran’s race.It is a good race but show me one of Jack’s races that wasn’t! He is the youngest dog and the fastest dog, he just has to get things right and he will bow out in style.

People have been very kind about Jack, have a look at his new website, and what the experts have said about Viking Jack.

I think JACK WILL WIN! I will be having a MAX BET on him, the last time I will be able to do so. Do I think he will win, HELL YEAH! He runs at 9.57 at Wimbledon, Trap 6, Saturday 4 June. I love this dog and I will in one way be sad its over but in another delighted to have him home safe and sound.

It will be tempting to have another race! I have always struggled with temptation! I want to say a big thank you to Jim Hayton, good dogs need good trainers, great dogs need great trainers! Just brilliant!

Finally thank you to Viking Jack, you are a star, your bravery and attitude is a privilege to have been a part of. My greyhound has inspired me. I love you Jack.
