Well it’s the Spring Racing Carnival season here in the land of Oz and where else but in Australia would a nation stop for a horse race…the Melbourne Cup is an EVENT to say the least and held on the first Tuesday in November…..and good gracious that’s today! Everyone will be watching the race, sipping the bubbles and having a flutter on their favourite runners. However while all the attention has been on our larger four legged friends we thought we’d get into the spirit and highlight some of our smaller four legged dynamos……yes that’s right the little racing Jacks who would definitely give the Gee Gee’s a run for their money…a couple of months ago we went to see some of these fellas strut their stuff and here’s what we found…….

Better than the Gee Gee’s it’s Jack Russell Racing…

Studying the course…I think I’ve got a jockey on my back…

Ready to Race…

Champing at the bit….

The start gates…

And they’re off…

Chasing that lure..

Speeding bullets….and Flying Burrito puppies…

Go jack go…

Jack Russell Racing is held throughout the cooler months in Sydney and you can find out more from the Jack Russell Terrier Club of NSW here.

Faster then Black Caviar and more sure footed than Phar Lap….

Adios, happy punting and barking until next time….
