The always exciting Southland HOUND MADNESS STAKES gets started Sunday, March 5 with Round 1 consisting of 8 stakes races on the card for the twilight session. There are 64 hard running greyhounds vying for the title in this head to head matchup and the battle, as always, should be a tremendous one. The way to advance in this stakes competition is for a greyhound to finish ahead of the greyhound they are matched with in the 4 region brackets. While a win will automatically move a greyhound on to the next round, they will also advanced as long as they finished ahead of the dog they are matched up against. There will be five rounds of this highly anticipated stakes tournament which will set the stage for the finals between the two remaining greyhounds on Friday, March 31. The field of 64 includes some of the best greyhounds in the country and is sure to be a most memorable stakes competition.  Best of luck to all the entries and their connections as they battle paw to paw for the 2017 HOUND MADNESS title.
