The most important greyhound races in the FCI world have still this "FUCKULTATIVE SECOND RUN"
And this time again some greyhound owners were put under pressure and wanted desperately run the final - and used the facultative second run to qualify for the EC greyhound final or to defend their place in the greyhound FCI European Greyhound Championship final.
Therefore again we saw facultative second runs in Beringen.
This time a greyhound dog came out of the final badly injured - a dog which was running the "facultative" second run. He was leading the pack and were running in lead head to head between bend number three and four when it happened ...
Dear BOSSES of FCI Greyhound lovers, stop the stupid rule of the facultative second run
(!) and organized instead B-, C- ... finals. Even if the greyhound people do not use it - yet.
From a Greyhound point of view, it is may be better NOT TO BE REGISTERED in a FCI Greyhound Stud Book!
