I used to go to White City and Wembley with my mate James. Trying to remember prefixes, and could only come up with "Longcross", think there were a few. My (false?) memory of Stan Bowles was that he seemed always pissed and made a bit of a show when he lost.

Decoy Regan Lass, think most Decoys sprang from Boom Happy. Chiltern was once common, too. Peggy Cope rings a bell?

woodmanchester;the decoy prefix was joe cobbolds prefix who was originaly attached to Ipswich in the 60,s he was best friends with nikki savva for many many yrs and also champion trainer in 1973 I believe prob his best ever dog was decoy carboom which won the golden jacket at Crayford.i knew the family for 30 yrs trevor [joes son]then carried on the decoy prefix until the mid 90's before cancer struck him down far too young in his mid 40's.trevor has some truly fantastic open racers slaneyside holly who won over 40 open races plus[the Kinsley derby flapping] sadly the best dogs he had which he bred slaneyside hare/easy bimbo were only pups the year he died you mite remember them decoy cheetah won the regency and decoy lynx who I think held 8 track records at 1 time was prob 1 of the best staying bitches I ever saw great memories and I miss trevor and joe very very much true gentlemen and proper greyhound men
