    Greyhound Racing $30,000 King & Queen Stakes qualifying round by Steve Sigafoose
    Posted by Admin on Thursday, June 25 @ 08:45:00 CDT (20 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.

    Greyhound Racing June 24, quarterfinals of the $60,000 Juvenile Stakes at Bluffs Run
    Posted by Admin on Thursday, June 25 @ 08:29:51 CDT (16 reads)

    After the Wednesday, June 24, quarterfinals of the $60,000 Juvenile Stakes at Bluffs Run, no greyhound is perfect but three appear ready to advance to the championship race.

    Bocís Executive (Boeckenstedt Kennel) and the Bartley Corporationís duo of Barts Bold Ruler and Thatswhereits At are tied for the points lead with 40. Traditionally at Bluffs Run a greyhound earning 40 points in the qualifying races earns a box in the championship race of a stakes.

    Bocís Executive, 27-11-5-2, had won two straight, but, despite a nice rally, he found himself running second to Barts Bold Ruler, 29-11-6-2, in the fourth race of the day, the third of the quarterfinal tests.

    Bold Ruler went box-to-wire from the three box to win by six lengths. The six lengths was the biggest margin of victory in the quarterfinals and his time for the 5-16 mile course of 30.14 seconds was the fastest in the quarterfinals.

    Thatswhereits At, 28-6-6-4, won the final quarterfinal of the day. He broke eighth and rallied from sixth in the first turn to finally with by a head at the wire.

    Two greyhounds posted wins to jump into the thick of the points chase with 36 apiece.

    Evolvingsituajhn (Plum Creek), 16-5-3-2, broke seventh and rallied from third in the far turn to win by two and a half lengths.

    XK Bone Crusher (Keeper-Red Rock), 27-7-2-4, chased Go Bon Kelseyann (Hardison) throughout before slipping past to win by a nose.

    Sitting at 35 points is the only greyhound among the top eight without two wins in the three rounds. Sweet Cheeses (Filipelli/Miner), 21-6-4-2, picked up his second second-place to go with a win.

    Second round co-leader Blink It (Black), 15-5-2-1, was the only leader to have trouble in the quarterfinal. Second early on, he faded to fifth, the four points earned gives him 34.

    Half Way There (Black), 18-7-3-1, is three-fourth of the way there. A one and a half length lead gives him 31 points, a last-place finish separating two wins.

    At the other end of the points, 19 was the cutoff for the semifinals. Two greyhounds, Barts Kicknashes (Bartley Corporation) and XK Xtraordinare (Keeper-Red Rock) advanced because their 19 points were made up of a second and a third. The other three greyhoundsí 19 were made up of a second and a fourth, eliminating them.

    Among the kennels, eight of the 14 at Bluffs Run have semifinalists. Keeper-Red Rock leads with eight. The Bartley Corporation is next with four while Boeckenstedt and Black have three each.

    For the Saturday, June 27, three semifinal races, eight of the 24 greyhounds have earned 24 or less points, making their chances for reaching the final probably slim. Past history has suggested that six or seven of the top eight after the quarterfinals have moved on into the final.

    Here is a list of the semifinalists (with kennels) and points earned:

    Bocís Executive (Boeckenstedt) 40; Barts Bold Ruler (Bartley Corporation) 40; Thatswhereits At (Bartley) 40; Evolvingsituajhn (Plum Creek) 36; XK Bone Crusher (Keeper-Red Rock) 36; Sweet Cheeses (Filipelli/Miner) 35; Blink It (Black) 34; Half Way There (Black) 31; XKT Jim Thurber (Keeper-Red Rock) 29; Xkt Todd Hoffman (Keeper-Red Rock) 29; Barts Trump Card (Bartley) 28; RJís Pelee (Keeper-Red Rock) 28; Star From Heaven (Keeper-Red Rock) 27; Bocís Redneck (Boeckenstedt) 26; Keeper Ispent It (Keeper-Red Rock) 25; Varoom Camren (Filipelli/Miner) 25;

    Greyhound Racing $60,000 Juvenile Stakes at Bluffs Run after the Saturday, June 20, second round.
    Posted by Admin on Sunday, June 21 @ 16:09:20 CDT (26 reads)

    Bocís Executive (Boeckenstedt Kennel) and Blink It (Black) share the lead at the halfway point in the qualifying for the $60,000 Juvenile Stakes at Bluffs Run after the Saturday, June 20, second round. The pair is the only greyhounds to win in each of the two rounds to secure the maximum of 30 points.

    Bocís Executive pounded out a three and a half length win in the eighth and final race of the second round. Executive, a 64-pounder born April 9, 2013 out of Kiowa Mon Manny-Bocís Mc Raisen, moves to 26-11-4-2 on the year. He won in a time of 30.30 seconds for the 5-16 mile course, the fastest time posted in the second round.

    Blink It was a surprise. Sent off by the patrons at 8-1, he outduel Barts Bold Ruler (Bartley Corporation) to win by a length. Blink It, a 73-pounder born Aug. 23, 2013 out of KC And All-Scatillac Bling, moves to 14-5-2-1.

    Barts Bold Ruler, 28-10-6-2, is in a three-way tie for third in the points standings with 25 points. It was disappointing to see prior to the race that Helpme Helpyou (Seastrom-Lovely), 16-7-2-2, was a scratch. Also with 25 points, thanks to second-round wins are Thatswhereits At (Bartley) and Sweet Cheeses (Filipelli/Miner).

    Sweet Cheeses, 20-6-3-2, came from second in the homestretch to trim Barts Trump Card (Bartley) 23-4-7-0 by a head.

    Thatswhereits At, 27-5-6-4, broke sixth then worked to finally get the lead in the homestretch on the way to a four-length decision that finally put him in Grade A.

    Rounding out the top eight in points are three greyhounds that took a step back after first-round wins. XKT Jim Thurber (Keeper-Red Rock) 12-4-2-1 took a third in the dayís first race. He a surprise considering he is still running in Grade C. He has 23 points. Also with 23 points Keeper Ispent It (Keeper-Red Rock) 18-5-2-2 who finished third behind Blink It.

    With 22 points Bocís Red Neck (Boeckenstedt) 25-8-1-2 who finished in a dead heat for third with Son Of Thunder (Keeper-Red Rock) 21-3-7-1 behind Thatwhereits At.

    The field was trimmed to 48 greyhounds for the Wednesday, June 24, quarterfinal round. To make the trim, a greyhound needed to have earned eight points in the first two rounds. Doing some math, a greyhound at Bluffs Run usually needs to earn 40 points to make the final of a stakes series. After the two rounds, 11 greyhounds are not in double digits in points, making their hopes slim in terms of a final berth.

    Greyhound Racing The $60,000 Juvenile Stakes opened action at Bluffs Run on Wednesday, June 17.
    Posted by Admin on Thursday, June 18 @ 18:18:54 CDT (51 reads)

    Hereís a look at the first round where eight greyhounds got a leg up with victories.

    In the first race, XK Bone Crusher (Keeper-Red Rock), 25-6-2-4, the patronsí favorite, came from second in the homestretch to win by two lengths.

    In the second race, XKT Jim Thurber (Keeper-Red Rock), 11-4-2-0, was a mild surprise. A 6-1 shot, Thurber won by a length.

    In the third race, Blink It (Black), 13-4-2-1, the favorite, won pulling away by three lengths.

    In the fourth race, Barts Bold Ruler (Bartley Corporation), 27-10-5-2, one of the pre-Stakes favorites, showed why. His six-length win was the biggest margin of victory in the first round. Breaking from the eight box, he paid only $3.00 for the win.

    The biggest surprise came in the fifth race. Keeper Ispent It (Keeper-Red Rock), 17-5-2-1 paid $21.00 to win as he pulled away for a three and a half length decision.

    In the sixth race, Half Way There (Black), 16-6-3-1 beat Dare Devil Deven (Black) 21-6-6-2 by two lengths in a battle of kennelmates.

    In the seventh race, Bocís Executive (Boeckenstedt) 25-10-4-2 won by two lengths over the heavy favorite Helpme Helpyou (Seastrom-Lovely) 16-7-2-2, who it was suspected would be helped by breaking from the one box.

    In the eighth and final race of the first round, Bocís Red Neck (Boeckenstedt) 24-8-1-1, broke sixth from the three box but kept working to rally from third in the homestretch for a three and a half length win.

    To sum up, Keeper-Red Rock had three winners while Black and Boeckenstedt had two winners each.

    The field of 64 greyhounds returns to action for the second round on Saturday, June 20. After the second round, the field will be slightly trimmed to 48 for the Wednesday, June 24, quarterfinals.
