SOuthern MOst Sighthounds (SOMOS) is a group of people from several states that oval race our pets under the guidance and direction of our race secretary Penny Bolt, who has been involved in the sport for years. We come from diverse backgrounds, various age groups, have different careers and live in many different states located in the eastern region of the United States. The racing club may be Florida based, but its members reside in many locations.
January 2009 will begin our third year of racing at the Jacksonville, Florida facility where we all take part in the operation of the race meets. Volunteers help prepare for each event, setup the awnings to provide shade for judges and the box operator, rotate duties as judges and foul judges. We simply all pitch in and do whatever is necessary to permit the daily activities to run as seamlessly as possible. This is the strength of SOMOS. A group of people that sincerely help each other and contribute to whatever level is needed to make our sport as enjoyable as possible. This not includes the people, but our pets as well.
We are pet owners first and oval track racing competitors second. The health and well being of our pets is paramount and extra care and dedication is delivered to ensure this.
We invite you to compete, support and become a member of a dog oval racing group that does whatever is necessary to promote the sport with integrity, honesty and social worth.
Our motto is "We Run For Fun" and it is not only our motto, but our directive. Come out and experience SOMOS !
