Round 3 of the 2016 SOUTHLAND DERBY highlights the program for Wednesday evening and while the favorites have been holding their own, fans have also seen several upsets. Of the 18 races on the program for June 22, 6 are stakes races as the very competitive field has now been reduced to 48 remaining greyhounds. This stakes competition kicked off on Saturday, June 11 with 88 greyhound entries vying for the SOUTHLAND DERBY title this season and with nearly half the field eliminated, the paw to paw battles among these talented greyhounds will get even tougher. So far there has been 2 extremely competitive rounds with several surprise winners able to pull off the upset and it still looks to be a wide open event to determine 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. I have 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.
