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 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.

September 7, 2015: This Week in Greyhound Racing

We had a busy Labor Day with several promotions, like the Mini Fetch and the 10% Bonus Match for deposits. On top of all that we had two stakes races: one at Palm Beach and the other at Ebro.

Palm Beach  The Finals of the $20,000 Gallagher / Kinnaird Puppy Stakes. It was a very exciting race when #2, BF PAR SNIPE, and the #8, PJ ST PIERRE, went neck to neck down the backstretch only to have Pierre turn on the boosters and finish ahead. Congratulations to PJ ST PIERRE, the 2015 Puppy Stakes Champion at Palm Beach!

Ebro Greyhounds  Monday marked the last race day of the season for Ebro and they concluded with the Luther “Ludy” Hess Gold Collar invitation-only stakes race. Obviously not wearing the gold collar because nothing was slowing him down #8, ROC A BY CHOCTAW, won the race. We can’t wait to see what next season holds for Ebro!

On Wednesday 9/09/15 Bluffs Run kicked off its $60,000 stakes race series known as “Finale” for its first round. Let’s recap the races:

Race 1: Winning out any contest the #8, HELPME HELPYOU, followed by the #2, CALL ME LATER, and in third place #7, B’S SOLVER WINGS.

Race 2: #5, TRENDING, was able to pull an upset and clinch the win with #8, DS VELA, and #4, DOWN LO on his tail.

Race 3: #6, CHAMP’S CONQUEST, also stepped up and pulled out a big win with #1, JD BOMBSHELL, and #3, TAHAS TORNADO, behind him.

Race 4: Passing the #1, NO BIG DEAL, right at the end of the backstretch #8, DARE DEVIL DEVEN, sneaks in a victory. #6, XKT JIM THUNDER, following behind both in third.

Race 5: Another hot win of the night #2, SUPERIOR PHOENIX, a longshot who paid out big and won the race by a length and a half with the #3, BOC’S HANK JR, and #5, LAHAINA, following close to each other.

Race 6: The #8, BOC’S EXECUTIVE, made it clear he wasn’t going to be beaten this race and ran an easy win. #5, DS SIP N SI, and #7, TOOTIE, coming in second and third respectively.

Race 7: #1, BOC’S SAILFISH, was not contested at all in this race. After the break he stayed in the lead the entire time. A few lengths behind him, #4, BARTS OH FANNY, and a few lengths behind that, #3, DEJA VUE.

Race 8: #4, JD ICONIC, just held on to the lead as #8, EVOLVINGSITUAJHN, exploded from the pack and flew into a solid second place. This left #5, BLINK OFF, to fend for himself in a finish that had to go to the photo.

Race 9: #2, ILLUMINATE, lit up the field and made winning look easy in this last heat race for round 1. #8, KL’s JULES, strode in about a length behind and then #7, DK’S GATOR ROLL, made his mark with the third spot.
