Fantastic Friday at Palm Beach
Fantastic Friday is upon us to start our racing weekend at Palm Beach. The superstars of South Florida greyhound racing will be on display yet again this afternoon as Pat C Short Cut, JS ToHotToHandle & season wins leader Barts Dublin all are slated to start. Sit back and enjoy this one.
Here are the top races I will be following for the Friday Matinee card at “The Beach.”
Race 6 Grade A 545 Yards
The hot rookie vs “The Sizzle.”
#8 JW Wyatt Earp from the Douglas Racing Team has run fabulous since the new season started. 7 wins on the season and has been a consistent board hitter the last two months. The 8 box should be a huge benefit today.
#6 JS ToHotToHandle from owner Shannon Henry should take the lead in this one. Can she hold on to it? Has showed a little fade in her game the past month and will need to run better this afternoon to pull off this victory. I’m trusting her here for the W.
Puppy Stakes Finalist #2 Bf Par Snipe from the Agganis Kennel has been in a photo finish in his last 6 starts. Will certainly take the lead here and make it close at the end. Any closers that can catch this fire breaker?
Yes….the most powerful greyhound in South FLA should. #8 Pat C Short Cut from the Koppe, Staats & Collins Team snagged our #1 Ranking last month and is in a perfect spot to put his skills on display from the outside today. Right now this is Palm Beach’s best chance at being included in the Daytona 550 National Championship.
Race 14 Grade TA 660 Yards
#1 Victory Gallant from the Douglas Kennel should pound this field. Watch out for newest 660 yard racer #3 Gamma Flash who won by over 10 lengths in his schooling warm up for this start.
*Amf Wild Burst*
Race 15 Grade A 545 Yards
The race that the world will tune in for.
The country of Ireland is abuzz with anticipation for their newest favorite greyhound “The Luck of the Irish” #3 Barts Dublin getting the call today. The season wins leader with 11 of them has the rare game of solid rush but even more lethal closing ability. Has been one of the most impressive rookies in the country this season.
Another hot rookie #8 Amf Wild Burst from the red hot B & B Kennel has been on a roll lately. Winner of 4 straight contests has him on many peoples raders now. Can he hang with the best field he’s ever seen? From the outside, I’m banking yes.
Top Pick Race 14- #1 Victory Gallant
Enjoy the races today everybody!
