Greyhound Preview Palm Beach For 9/8/2014
By Palm Beach JasonWhat a card on tap to start off the racing week today at Palm Beach! Some of the biggest superstars in greyhound racing will be on display today and none is bigger here then JS SpeedyPebbles going in Race 15. Veteran CRT Majestic and rookie sensations Jim Brown and Albatross also will make an appearance today.
Here are the top races I will be following for the Matinee at “The Beach.”
Race 6 Grade A 545 Yards
One of the hottest rookies to hit the scene this year has been #2 Jim Brown from owner Dr. Michael Metyk. The running back name sake has the second fastest time of the season of any greyhound (29.38 secs) and has consistently bolted under 30 secs times this entire season. Loves the rail and will be able to outbreak both neighbor boxes here.
Biggest threat will come from #7 CRT Majestic from The Champions Racing Team. Majestic will look to grab a piece of the season wins lead this afternoon. With 7 W’s already this season, he is a bonafide alpha hound here.
Look out also for Puppy Stakes competitor #5 Albatross from top Kennel Rader Racing. The “Big Bird” will be looking to get back to the winner’s circle today after missing it in three straight starts.
Jim Brown scores another touchdown for the Brindle Kennel and gets his 7th victory of the season.
Race 10 Grade B 545 Yards
Many former top class greyhounds will racing in this one.
#1 Hustle It Up from the new Janie Carroll Kennel will be looking for her first Palm Beach victory this afternoon. The transfer from Miami gets her first shot in the hot 1 box and has shown some good early speed so far at her new home.
#4 JS Angel Touch from all-star owner Shannon Henry is a Grade B buzzsaw who has a dynamite history of winning in this class. The 16 time winner from last season has a great chance of getting out in front here. Biggest question will be can she hold the lead if she gets it.
I’m liking Hustle It Up to get the victory here, but Angel Touch winning wouldn't surprise me either.
Race 15 Grade A 545 Yards
The race of the day without a doubt.
The most popular athlete at Palm Beach is #1 JS SpeedyPebbles. Anything I post about her on social media is instant gold, as her following is growing each and every time she races. With that patented lid flipper early speed, the Koppe, Staats & Collins legend will look for her 8th victory of the season this afternoon. All time out of the 1 box, Pebbles is a 66% winner.
Look out for veteran #8 Atascocita Padua from Suncoast Racing. She has win three straight from the outside and can close out any fading greyhounds at the wire. Pebbles will need a good cushion this afternoon if she is going to hold Padua off.
SpeedyPebbles in her favorite setup is too nice to walk away from here.
