American Derby Final Leg 1 at Mardi Gras on Friday, March 29thLeg 2, with the same field, will be contested on April 2nd. A match race will be run if no greyhound wins both legs of the stakes.
Here's the field for the 7th race in post position: #1-Smokey Joe (Trudden) Fastest time of the Derby with a sizzling 37.78. #2-HL's Dale (Jackson) #3-Mom's Hellion (DQ Williams) #4-Goodlucksterling (DQ Williams) #5-Noah's Ark (DQ Williams) #6-Roc A By Spinoff (Jackson) #7-TMC's X Factor (Pauline O'Donnell) #8-Fuzzy's Old Fox (Suncoast)
Any one of these dogs could win this one, but I think #1 Smokey Joe will win with #2 HL's Dale right behind him. I expect #8 Fuzzy's Old Fox to be rounding out the trifecta.
Orange Park's James P Patton Silver Cup Round 1 on Friday Evening March 29thLots of well-known runners in these races, but some newcomers too, sure to put on an exciting show as they race in the first leg of this stakes that will wind up on April 13th.
One of the dogs to watch in this round is SNJ Black Porter, who just ran in the American Greyhound Derby. Another derby entrant, GS Grace, should be a contender at her favorite distance again. Keep an eye on Kiowa Jill Vik and Warped and don't be surprised to see them at the wire ahead of the pack. There's a lot of talent here, and they'll all be back in the second round on Monday, April 1st. Don't miss a minute of this exciting stakes event at Orange Park.
