I first visited a local farm looking for a pair of…
A promising result from Devonshire’s Jack and Alfie.
Sometimes you have to be content to make slow but sure progress, and indeed such was the case at the 2017 Yarcombe Terrier Racing event this year where Devonshire magazine’s entrants, Jack and Alfie Jones, improved their result by a single position, resulting in them both coming second-from-last. The poor showing was again down to facing the wrong way in the trap, a major problem that Alfie swiftly recovered, but by which time it was pretty much over. However, progress was made over and above last year’s result and it’s hoped Alfie will eventually overcome his directional problem, possibly to win in another couple of years? Jack Jones has now been retired out of the races due to old age.
The videos below show the races where both Alfie and Jack appeared.
