I have given my notice at Monmore Green today (8th October 2014) and will leave at the end of the year.
I have had eight great years at the track and would like to thank personally Richard Brankley and his team for giving me the chance to train at Monmore. However all good things come to an end and I have come to the decision that I need a new challenge and I believe that Towcester will give us the opportunity to get back to the top and also to achieve the lifelong ambition of mine to win the Greyhound Derby.

With a new gallop now fully installed at Westview Kennels and the likelihood of new owners making their way to Towcester, myself and my team are more than ready for this new chapter in racing.

I have absolutely no doubt that Towcester will become the Ascot of greyhound racing and will give owners, racegoers and staff the Wow factor and provide facilities and recognition that this sport both needs and deserves.

There will be many changes to the website over the coming days as we readjust our focus towards Towcester which opens for racing in early December.

As a team we strive for continuous improvement.
We have over 60 different owners currently who value our open and friendly kennels where communication is valued.
Sunday mornings are always very busy with owners visiting and walking their dogs in the beautiful Warwickshire countryside.

We welcome enquiries from all new owners and everyone is welcome to come and visit and chat to staff and existing owners.

We have been attached to Monmore Green for a number of years now and more often than not have been the Champion trainer their (unless of course we are chasing the National Trainers Title), the track is possibly the best run track in the country with superb facilities for entertaining, eating and viewing the action, Add to that top prize money and run money then it's easy to see why so many owners like to race their dogs at the Wolverhampton venue.

Greyhound racing is a fun sport and a great hobby to get into. The dogs start racing from 15 months old and can race up to 4/5 years of age.
The cost of buying a greyhound varies in price and can be as little as £500 and can go up to £50,000 depending on class and their breeding.
Training costs here are £7.50 per day + vat to train a greyhound
The only extras on top of that are any vets fees that the greyhound has acquired + quarterly worming charge and yearly inoculation and if a bitch's season is suppressed if the owner agrees.
Graded race dogs will not be charged travel expenses going back and forth to the track, but Open Class greyhounds will be charged travel expenses and the charge will vary on what part of the country the greyhound is racing.
The GBGB will also charge a one off fee for registration, change of ownership or changing of a greyhounds name.

After the racing career of a greyhound is over the owner may take the greyhound home as a pet or the greyhound will be re homed by the Monmore Green Retired Greyhound Trust (£100 Fee).
