Round 3 of the 2016 SOUTHLAND DERBY was highlighted not only by the 6 stakes races on the program for Wednesday evening but also by the surprising number of longshots that were able to pull the upset. In the 6 stakes races, 5 of them were won by greyhounds going off at odds of anywhere from 6-1 to 29-1, including winners who went off at 8-1, 9-1 and 10-1. This stakes competition kicked off on Saturday, June 11 with 88 greyhound entries vying for the elusive SOUTHLAND DERBY title this season and with nearly half the field eliminated, the paw to paw battles among these talented greyhounds heated up for sure. With 3 extremely competitive rounds having been run, and with several surprise winners able to pull off upsets, these last two rounds should be a battle royal to decide the champion. This is the next to last stakes championship for the 2016 season at Southland with only the FESTIVAL OF STAKES championship left on the racing schedule at this track so be sure to tune in for Round 4 on Sunday, June 26 as well as the finals on Friday, July 1. Earlier in this competition I had listed my 8 selections to make the finals along with my pick to win it all as well as a longshot pick and you can see them below. Best of luck to all the greyhounds that are entered in this stakes contest as well as to their kennels, trainers and owners and all other connections. Good luck and thanks for reading.
