The 2016 SOUTHLAND DERBY is headed to the finals on Friday, July 1 and while the favorites led the way in Round 4 we all know as racing fans that anything can happen in the finals. As you may remember, Round 3 was highlighted by a ton of upsets and some greyhound fans may have been expecting more of the same for Round 4 but it wasn't to be as the favorites kicked it in high gear and won all 4 races. The field has now been cut to 16 with 8 greyhounds making the Consolation and 8 greyhounds making the Finals with both stakes races being held this coming Friday, July 1. This stakes competition kicked off on Saturday, June 11 with 88 greyhound entries vying for the SOUTHLAND DERBY title this season and with the Consolation and Finals down to the remaining 16 greyhounds, the paw to paw action will certainly be intense and full of exciting greyhound action. With 4 very tough and competitive rounds having been run, and with several surprise winners able to pull off upsets, the finals 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 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 I had all 4 winners in Round 4. I still have 7 of my picks in the chase for the title as well as my pick to win it all. 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.
