Flying Start!

Flying Start! 

EXPLORE.

Seanies Hero [red jacket] on the way to a win at Pelaw Grange, Chester - le - Street, County Durham, England. Crooks Marine [blue jacket] got the worst of the crowding after the start as you can see and was last into the vital first bend. He made his usual strong finish to take a close second.
I forgot to slightly adjust the exposure value for the glare off the sand as it's quite a few months since I did a greyhound photo! I'll remember next time!

This is an excellent friendly venue www.pelawgrange.co.uk
