Yukon Meat and Sausage Race Day Results

Another great day for dogs and drivers alike at this past Sundays (Aug 14th,2011) DPSAY Hot Hounds Event.  The excess of rainy weather we have had lately in theWhitehorse area decided to hold off long enough for the eager dog drivers and dogs to compete, and the cooler temperature that evening provided some excellent conditions for a summer dog race.

The Yukon Meat and Sausage Race day saw 20 competitors bring their dogs out to field 36 entrants across 4 events.  This past Sunday’s event saw some new faces and many DPSAY regulars – and the competition was stiff, in the 1mile – 1 dog and the 2mile – 2 dog events.  In the 1 mile – 1 dog event only 42 seconds separated the 1st place finisher from the 5th place finisher and in the 2mile – 2 dog there was only a 52second difference between the 1st place and 5th place.


Following the race everyone gathered around the fire pit at host Alex Rochat’s place to eat some delicious hot dogs (provided by our host) and share some other excellent food brought by the competitors.  Once everyone had settled down a little from the excitement of the races, the spectators and competitors gathered for the awards presentation.  The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers in each event were awarded gift certificates that were generously donated by Yukon Meat and Sausage (The Deli) and additional prizes from our other prize sponsors (Icy Waters Arctic Charr, Yukon Honda, Muktuk Adventures and Cadence Cycle) were awarded to other finishing competitors.

  1. Sorry I missed the races. It sounds like they were exciting with all those tight finishes. Glad to see lots of cani-crossers and the excellent turn out.

    On another point, for the City’s draft snowmobile regulations, I’m putting together an email to City of Whitehorse bylaw to allow for special provision for snowmobile race support inside City limits. If you have anything you’d like me to include, please send it to yukonschriftsteller-at-yahoo-dot-ca . In a short conversation with Dave Pruden, he agreed provision needs to be made, and he’ll use our info to back up inclusion of those points in the draft regulations that will go to Council in a couple of months.
