This week in Greyhound Racing: September 18th, 2015

huskerHusker Magic at Derby Lane with Kayruth Abernathy and Claudio Lopez in 2014

HUSKER MAGIC won her 86th career win last Saturday at Derby Lane. She was hardly challenged for dominance in this race and flew home with the moniker “Derby Lane’s Darling Diva!” shouted out by the Voice of DL, Jim Peake. Winning this A grade race looked like a breeze for our girl, Husker. Will she own the next race and make it 87? We’ll have to find out!

We had three round 2 stakes events on Wednesday: Future Star Stakes, WVOGBA Juvenile Stakes, and The Bluffs Run Finale.

Race 2: #6 O YA KATT DADDY took the lead from the inside and didn’t give. Hugging the rail, Katt Daddy flew into an easy win.

Race 4: In this race, #5 BCS OLD GLORY jumped ahead of the pack and stayed there. Having no pressure didn’t stop Old Glory from turning on the afterburners and finishing the race strong.

Race 6: In an exciting race it was #1 SUPER C MALINA who turned on the late speed down the backstretch to pass #7 KEEPER SUSANNAH just after the last turn.

Race 10: After the break, #4 HILCO MAGNUM made it known that he was going to take this win and leave the others in his dust. #8 DOCTOR TONY wasn’t listening and made a valiant effort in second place.

Race 12: The #4 BOC’S LOOKING AT U darted from the box to the wire after the break and used this to stay in the lead and win the race. He was followed closely by #6 BCS DIRT ROADIN.

Race 14: The #7 GT’S TALLI and #8 CLASSY WOLVERINE were eye-to-eye in the backstretch before Talli pulled ahead and took the win.
