    Greyhound Racing $60,000 Open at Bluffs Run to highlight the Saturday, July 25, semifinal races.
    Posted by Admin on Sunday, July 26 @ 12:09:15 CDT (17 reads)

    COUNCIL BLUFF, Ia. Ė With an impressive homestretch drive O Ya Spunky (Bartley Corporation) made quite the leap into the final of the $60,000 Open at Bluffs Run to highlight the Saturday, July 25, semifinal races.

    Spunky, a 69-pounder, born March 4, 2013 out of Kiowa Sweet Trey Ė O Ya Queenie, entered the semifinals tied for 21st in the points standings. He broke sixth in the dayís fifth race, the middle of the three semifinals, but quickly was on the heels of early leader DS Phoenix (Bean & Stout). Spunky kept the pressure on and passed Phoenix in the homestretch to win by a length. The victory gave O Ya Spunky, 36-14-7-2, his second win in the four qualifying rounds and a total of 40 points, good for a tie for fifth in the points and good for a berth in the final.

    Leading the charge to the championship race is Bocís Tony Romo (Boeckenstedt). The converted 3-8 miler also pulled off a homestretch rally, taking the first semifinal test by one and a half lengths in a time of 30.06 seconds for the 5-16 mile course, the best time of the three semifinals. It was Tony Romoís, 31-14-5-5, third straight win in the qualifiers and gave him a points-leading 55 points.

    Second in points was DS Phoenix, 17-6-2-2, who chased O Ya Spunky across the finish line. Her second place finish gave her 50 points thanks to two wins and two seconds in the four rounds.

    Third was the other semifinal winner, Barts Bold Ruler (Bartley Corporation). Bold Ruler, 35-15-6-2, won the sixth race on the card by a length. He finished with 46 points based on three wins and a last-place finish which happened when he fell in the quarterfinal race.

    The trackís victory leader, Bocís Hank Jr (Boeckenstedt), 29-18-2-6, finished with 42 points after finishing third behind O Ya Spunky. Troubled hampered Hank in the semifinal just like it did in the quarterfinal after Hank opened the series with two wins.

    KJís Jomax (Mickim), 31-6-4-7, who opened the qualifiers with two longshot wins, finished fourth in the last of the semifinal races but still qualified with 40 points.

    Two greyhounds completed the championship field by collecting 39 points each.

    Illuminate (Filipelli/Miner), 31-7-5-9, entered the semifinals tied for seventh and stayed right there with a third-place finish in the semis first race.

    Bocís Sailfish (Boeckenstedt), 28-10-6-5, the $60,000 Secretaryís Choice champion, made the jump from being tied for 10th after the quarterfinals to the championship field with a second-place finish in the first of the semifinal races.

    There was a clean cut in making the final. First out were two greyhounds with 37 points. Evolvingsitujhn (Plum Creek) had been tied for seventh after the quarterfinals but a fifth place finish in the last of the semifinals doomed him. Bocís Shamuel (Boeckenstedt) needed a win to qualify but ran second to Barts Bold Ruler to come up short.

    By the numbers, the Boeckenstedt Kennel has three greyhounds in the final and the Bartley Corporation has two. The final is male heavy with only DS Phoenix on the fair side.

    The $60,000 Open championship race is set for Saturday, Aug. 1.

    Greyhound Racing The quarterfinal round, of the $60,000 Bluffs Run Open by Steve Sigafoose
    Posted by Admin on Thursday, July 23 @ 19:59:33 CDT (71 reads)

    COUNCIL BLUFFS, Ia. Ė Four greyhounds entered the quarterfinal round on Wednesday, July 22, of the $60,000 Open at Bluffs Run running perfectly. But all four stumbled to shake up the points standings.

    When the six quarterfinal races were finished, two greyhounds were on top with 40 points each. That number is important; usually a greyhound collecting 40 points in the four qualifying rounds of a Bluffs Run stakes makes the championship race.

    One of new co-leaders is one of the second-round leaders. DS Phoenix (Bean & Stout). Phoenix, 16-6-1-2, was out finished in the homestretch to finish second in Wednesdayís seventh race by a length and a half.

    The other new co-leader is Bocís Tony Romo (Boeckenstedt), 30-13-5-5. Maybe the best finisher in the field, Tony Romo broke sixth in the eighth race and came on to rally in the homestretch to win by a length.

    The co-leaders have posted two wins and a second in the three rounds.

    There is a drop-off to a pair of second round leaders with 34 points each. Both posted fifth place finishes in the quarterfinal races.

    KJís Jomax (Mickim), 30-6-4-7, was second early on in the eighth race before fading to fifth.

    Bocís Hank Jr (Boeckenstedt), 28-18-2-5, had his five-race win streak snapped. He was running second before being bumped and blocked late in dropping to fifth.

    Jumping into the thick of the chase was a pair of quarterfinal round winners, the victories giving each of them 33 points.

    Evolvingsitujhn (Plum Creek), 22-6-4-5, gave a dominating effort in the sixth race in winning by eight and a half lengths.

    UB Bus Punk (Keeper-Red Rock), 16-5-2-2, went from a 23-1 longshot to a five length winner in the third race.

    The fourth of the second turn co-leaders, Barts Bold Ruler (Bartley Corporation), 34-14-6-2, fell in the first turn in the third race and finished last. That left him with 31 points and tied for seventh with two others

    The $60,000 3-8 Mile Derby champion Bocís Gasguzzier (Boeckenstedt), 29-8-7-3, got a big jump up by winning the fifth race by four lengths for his 31 points.

    Illuminate (Filipelli/Miner), 30-7-5-8, finished third in the fifth race for his 31 points.

    At the other side of the points list four greyhounds tied for the final two spots in the field of 24 for the semifinals. Two of the four had first-round wins and that eliminated the other two who did not have wins in the first three rounds.

    Advancing were Thief Inthenight (Plum Creek), 28-6-5-0, and Sweet Cheeses (Filipelli/Miner), 27-7-4-3.

    The semifinal races will be held on Saturday, July 25.

    Here are the 24 semifinalists with (their kennels) and point totals.

    DS Phoenix (Bean & Stout) 40; Bocís Tony Romo (Boeckenstedt) 40; Bocís Hank Jr (Boeckenstedt) 34; KJís Jomax (Mickim) 34; Evolvingsitujhn (Plum Creek) 33; UB Bus Punk (Keeper-Red Rock) 33; Barts Bold Ruler (Bartley Corporation) 31; Illuminate (Filipelli/Miner) 31; Bocís Gasguzzier (Boeckenstedt) 31; Bocís Sailfish (Boeckenstedt) 29; Go Bon Due South (Hardison) 29; Bocís John Luke (Boeckenstedt) 28; Bocís Mr Gardner (Boeckenstedt) 28; Highland Paco (Hardison) 27; Bocís Shamuel (Boeckenstedt) 27; Varoom Carmen (Filipelli/Miner) 26; Run To Be Running (Plum Creek) 26; Essential Quality (Plum Creek) 26; Ds Rumba (Keeper-Red Rock) 26; KC Fire N Ice (Bean & Stout) 26; JD Debutante (Seastrom-Lovely) 25; O Ya Spunky (Bartley Corporation) 25; Thief Inthenight (Plum Creek) 24; Sweet Cheeses (Filipelli/Miner) 24.

    Greyhound Racing 2nd round $60,000 Open at Bluffs Run by Steve Sigafoose
    Posted by Admin on Sunday, July 19 @ 17:15:23 CDT (24 reads)

    COUNCIL BLUFFS, Ia. Ė Sitting at the halfway point in the qualifying for the $60,000 Open at Bluffs Run, four greyhounds top the points' board with a perfect total of 30 points after the Saturday, July 18, second round.

    The trackís victory leader, Bocís Hank Jr (Boeckenstedt) 27-18-2-5 won by three lengths in Saturdayís 11th race. This was the 75-pounderís, born Feb. 5, 2013 out of Kiowa Mon Manny Ė Bocís Miss Rodeo, fifth straight win and sixth out of his last seven starts (the miss was a second by a nose).

    Bluffs Run Juvenile Stakes finalist Barts Bold Ruler (Bartley Corporation) 33-14-6-2 went box-to-wire to win by one and a half lengths in Saturdayís seventh race. Bold Ruler is running well of late, in his last eight outings, the 73-pounder, born May 26, 2013 out of Pacific Mile Ė Barts Companion, has five wins and two seconds.

    The Bluffs Run patrons refuse to believe in KJís Jomax (Mickim) 29-6-4-7. The 80 pounder, born Oct. 31, 2012 out of KC And All Ė Gilded Rose, was sent off as a 27-1 longshot in the first round and won. In the second round, he was sent off as a 23-1 longshot and won by a length in Saturdayís opening race.

    DS Phoenix (Bean & Stout) 15-6-0-2, a 70-pounder, born Oct. 25, 2011 out of BDís Grayson Ė Ds Mariah, won Saturdayís third race by a length and a half. That gives Phoenix two straight wins after starting the Open in Grade B.

    Four greyhounds are tied for fifth in points with 25, meaning they each have a win and a second in the first two rounds.

    Bocís John Luke (Boeckenstedt) 16-4-2-2, Bluffs Runís Greyhound of the Year in 2014, was running in Grade C in May, but looks to be back to his championship form after winning Saturdayís eighth race. He went box-to-wire from the one box to win by three lengths in Saturdayís eighth race.

    Bocís Tony Romo (Boeckenstedt) 29-12-5-5 came from fifth in the homestretch to win the sixth race by a length.

    The fourth Boeckenstedt Kennel greyhound in the top eight, Bocís Mr. Gardner, 25-7-6-2, ran second, missing the winnerís circle by a neck, in the 12th race, for his 25 points.

    Varoom Camren (Filipelli/Miner) 28-6-5-4 was overtaken in the homestretch and finished second by a half length in the fifth race for his 25 points.

    One other second-round win of note came in the ninth race. The $60,000 Secretaryís Choice champion, Bocís Sailfish, 26-10-4-5, won by three lengths in a dayís best time of 29.92 seconds for the 5-16 mile course.

    At the other end of the points list, there was a clean cut. Greyhounds with 11 points survived to the quarterfinals while greyhounds with 10 points were eliminated.

    Traditionally, a greyhound earning 40 points in the four rebounds of qualifying for a Bluffs Run stakes makes the championship field. So, doing the math, the remaining 48 greyhounds all have a chance to reach the Saturday, Aug. 1, final.

    The quarterfinal races for the $60,000 Open will be run on Wednesday, July 22.

    Greyhound Racing $30,000 King & Queen Stakes qualifying round by Steve Sigafoose
    Posted by Admin on Thursday, June 25 @ 08:45:00 CDT (74 reads)

    DUBUQUE Ė The $30,000 King & Queen Stakes qualifying rounds are two-third complete and, in each case, half the final field is getting in focus at Iowa Greyhound Park.

    On the Queensí side, four greyhounds are tied at the top with 32 points. There is a seven point drop to the rest of the field.

    Each of the four leaders has posted a win and a second in the first two rounds. Bocís Sydney (Boeckenstedt), 6-2-2-1, and Jax Pop The Tab (Jackson) 7-2-4-1 won in the second round. Kc Devious (Stidham) 5-1-2-0 and O Ya Cindra (Superior) 7-4-2-1 won in the first round.

    On the Kingsí side, Slatex Elvis (Jackson) 8-5-0-1 sits alone at the top of the points list with a perfect 40. He tacked a three-length win on top of a three and a half first round win.

    Fantastico (Jackson), 7-3-2-0 and Pat C Unplugged (Collins-Schmidt) 6-5-1-0 are tied for second with 32 points each.

    Fantastico rallied from third in the homestretch to win his second round race by a neck to go with his second-place finish in the opening round. Unplugged had his five-race win streak snapped. He broke fifth and tried to rally but came up a length and a half short to Bocís Grandpooba (Boeckenstedt), 6-5-0-0. Grandpooba had his four race win streak snapped in his first-round outing with a lackluster last place finish.

    The field was cut to the top 16 point earners in each category for the third round, which will be run on Sunday, June 28. After the third round, the field will be trimmed to the top four Kings and top four Queens for the championship race on Saturday, July 4.

    Queens Point Standings:

    Bocís Sydney (Boeckenstedt) 32; Jax Pop The Tab (Jackson) 32; Kc Devious (Stidham) 32; O Ya Cindra (Superior) 32; O Ya Chewie (Superior) 25; Kc Saucey Sis (Stidham) 21; Reigning (Hardison) 20; Bs Rebel (Copper Kettle) 15; Ajís Callie (Jackson) 13; Super C Gina (Superior) 13; Bocís Jennyfinch (Boeckenstedt) 11; B L Mi Kind (Boeckenstedt) 10; Pat C Raven S (Collins-Schmidt) 10; Mmís Elite Elise (Collins-Schmidt) 7; Jax Betmebristol (Jackson) 5; Pat C Dark Ciena (Collins-Schmidt) 5.
