This Week With The Professor: Double Grade Drops

Are double grade drops good bets?
Probably not, with a couple of exceptions. The reason the greyhound is dropping is because he or she is off form because of old age, fatigue, or minor injuries. It is never a good idea to bet a hound that is off form. One exception is a young dog who went up the ladder quickly and was not ready to compete at a higher level; they can return to form quickly. Another thing to watch for is a 7-10 day rest. The trainer has taken time to rest the dog and work with him or her, and they may be ready to return to the form that took them to a higher grade.

One thought on “This Week With The Professor: Double Grade Drops

  1. Both excellent points. I have also found them to be good bets if a 3/16th dog is double dropping and moving to 5/16th. Another is being in a bad post for several races and not being too far off. Then the dog finally gets his favorite post. Another is to look for shippers who are changing distances and they had great success at that new distance at their previous track.
