Lure Coursing beating the heat

GOGLCA hosts last event before the summer break 2023 in Brooksville, FL.

Special Photo-Feature: GOGLCA ASFA and AKC Weekend 25-26 March 2023

Sighthounds both large and small came to play one last time before the Summer break at Florida Classic Park, Brooksville, FL.

[galleries below]

Greater Ocala & Gainesville Lure Coursing Assoc. (GOGLCA) last event for the season did not quite beat the heat and it was a scorcher on the vast field, but with plenty of shade, water and fans, the many teams got through the weekend with the usual excitement and fast runs.

Lure coursing is an American creating, now close to 100 years old and gives the live rabbits of traditional coursing a welcome break as they are replaced with a series of 3 "lures" on a line run across zig zag track often up to 15 acres. Up to three dogs at a time take on the course that simulates to hunting pursuit and are judged up the quality of their run and not a first across the finish as we see in racing events.

With increasing Sighthound ownership, letting these beautiful animals show off what they were built to do over thousands of years is truly a sight to see and we hope these images from the weekend spur your interest to get involved too. Either as a Sighthound owner or spectator for the excitement in rural Florida.
