Glenrothes duo’s dogs win prestigious double

Two Glenrothes men were given special presents either side of Christmas when their greyhounds won two trophies at a big meeting in England.

David Nelson and George Maul watched Bossy Brid win a Christmas Eve handicap at Swindon and her sister, Moody Mags, take the Boxing Day Trophy at the same track, with each victory coming complete with £500 in prize money.

The duo’s dogs were both bought in Ireland and are being looked after by a trainer from the Emerald Isle.

David said: “The dogs are both two and a half and they have been performing well in races so far.

“They are up and coming dogs and are yet to reach their peak, so we are looking forward to seeing what they do next.”
