RFS Puppy Derby - Wimbledon 480M - £10,000

Liz McNair looked set to dominate the RFS Puppy Derby with four runners in the three semi-finals and she got two of them through to the final as heat winners. King Kid was hugely impressive in the firs semi final, following Droopys Cairo up the run up before passing him around the second bend. He pulled away down the back and won by a massive eight lengths from Brighouse boy who ran on to qualify in second. The winner’s time of 28.10 was 11 spots quicker than Jaytee Jet’s time when winning the Derby in the summer.

King Kid’s litter brother King Eden was fortunate to just be in front at the first bend and miss a pile up involving the rest of the field in the second semi-final. The favourite Droopys Dresden emerged from the carnage in second place and was hunting down King Eden all the way around but when the winning line came he was still three lengths in arrears.

First bend trouble was a feature of the third semi-final as well when the chances of the odds on favourite Newinn Shadow were ended after a bump with Killinan Lee. That left Kooga Klammer out in front and Killinan Lee did well to chase him down and catch him on the line to shade the contest by a short head.
