2008 4th Place White Oak Classic 6-Dog Pro 60 Mile
The dogs did just a super job in this race after coming off of over two weeks of doing trips!! (We had such large groups of people we were taking almost the whole dog yard everyday!) Thankfully they got a little time off to rest before the race.
The team maintained a steady pace to Squaw Lake where we were the second fastest to that point(38 miles), after that they slowed down so we lost a couple places, but then picked it back up when it started getting dark. They were loping as they crossed the finish line. All had good appetite's, I was really happy at how great they looked and how quickly they recovered.
The trail was pretty chewed up by heavy snowmobile traffic, and in places was more dirt then snow. It was a fun race though and I hope to come back and race in the 10 dog next year!
