    Contrary to wild rumors:

    The Crawford Law Firm did not receive a dime from the Escrow money awarded to Dubuqe for racing last season.

    Some people just like to keep things stirred up.

    Greyhound Racing Purse Escrow Fund created in 1995 Arbitration Decision
    Posted by Admin on Monday, January 25 @ 11:39:32 EST (340 reads)

    Purse Escrow Fund created in 1995 Arbitration Decision

    Dear Potential Recipient:

    On March 5, 2015, the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission passed a motion providing for one-half of the purse escrow fund created in the 1995 Arbitration Decision of Arthur Blair to be distributed to purse recipients at Bluffs Run. The IRGC’s motion requires distributions to be based on the previous five years of purse payments. Pursuant to Iowa Code §99D.9A(6), the Iowa Greyhound Association is coordinating the distribution of the fund in accordance with the IRGC’s motion.

    If the IRGC and Bluffs Run have identified you as having received purse payments from Bluffs run during the previous five years you will be receiving a cover letter and W-9. The first step in the process for you to receive your distribution is to complete, sign and return the enclosed W-9: (1) fill in the Tax ID number using the number applicable to the name of the person/entity identified in Box 1; (2) sign and date where indicated on the form; and (3) return the completed W-9 to our office: 1701 Ruan Center, Des Moines, Iowa 50309.

    YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A DISTRIBUTION WITHOUT RETURNING AN EXECUTED W-9.

    The distribution amount will be calculated using the same formula the IRGC utilized in making its cessation fund distributions. We anticipate sending distribution payments beginning the first week of March 2016. The payments will include a complete itemization of the distributions.

    Thank you for your attention to this matter.

    Greyhound Racing 2015 All Bluffs Run Team by Steve Sigafoose
    Posted by Admin on Saturday, December 19 @ 17:52:27 EST (254 reads)

    There is something fitting that the final All Bluffs Run Team Greyhound of the Year award should be shared and that an extra box had to be build into the starting block as nine greyhounds, instead of the usual eight, made the team.

    But that is exactly what happened as a field of 29 candidates was narrowed down in the process to determine who was to be honor for the last time at Bluffs Run.

    Sharing the Greyhound of the Year award was the Boeckenstedt Kennel duo of Boc’s Hank Jr and Boc’s Tony Romo.

    Boc’s Hank Jr, a 75-pounder born Feb. 5, 2013 out of Kiowa Mon Manny – Boc’s Miss Rodeo, topped the Bluffs Run win list with a 46-27-5-7 record. He capped his season by winning the $500,000 Iowa Breeders Classic, had a third place finish in the $60,000 Secretary’s Choice and was finalist in the $60,000 Bluffs Run Open. It could be argued that Hank was maybe the most talented greyhound at the track in 2015.

    If Hank wasn’t, then the most talented greyhound was Boc’s Tony Romo, a 71-pounder born March 27, 2013 out of Flying Penske – Boc’s Slim N Fit. Romo’s highlight was winning the $60,000 Open, probably Bluffs Run’s toughest stakes race. He was also second in the $60,000 3-8 Mile Derby and a finalist in the $60,000 Secretary’s Choice. None of the greyhounds at Bluffs Run had a better finishing kick than Tony Romo.

    Here is the rest of the All Bluffs Run team, in no particular order.

    Barts Bold Ruler (Bartley Corporation Kennel), 45-18-9-3, was an impressive second in the $60,000 Open and a finalist in the $60,000 Juvenile. He is a 73-pounder, born May 26, 2013 out of Pacific Mile – Barts Companion.

    Boc’s John Luke (Boeckenstedt), 33-10-4-4, was Bluffs Run’s Greyhound of the Year in 2014 when he won a pair of stakes titles. The 74-pounder, born Sept. 2, 2011 out of Super Lee – Antsie Nancy got better as the season went on with his highlight a solid third place finish in the $500,000 Iowa Breeders Classic.

    Boc’s Sailfish (Boeckenstedt), 46-19-9-7, was overshadowed in his own kennel despite winning two stakes titles. The 70-pounder, born July 31, 2012 out of Djays Octane – Boc’s Mc Raisen, won the $60,000 Secretary’s Choice in May and the $60,000 Finale in September. He was also third in the $60,000 Open and the finalist in the $500,000 Iowa Breeders Classic. Helpme Helpyou (Seastrom-Lovely), 37-15-4-2, took second in the $60,000 Secretary’s Choice and made the final of both the $60,000 Finale and the $500,000 Iowa Breeders Classic. The 74-pounder was born Aug. 3, 2013 out of Djays Octane – Ocean Avenue.

    No Big Deal (Hardison), 54-19-10-6, was an impressive second in the $500,000 Iowa Breeders Classic and was also a finalist in the $60,000 Finale. No Big Deal is an 82-pounder, born April 4, 2013 out of Flying Coal City – Niesi.

    O Ya Spunky (Bartley Corporation), 59-18-12-8, is a 69-pounder. He was born March 4, 2013 out of Kiowa Sweet Trey – O Ya Queenie. Spunky was a finalist in the $60,000 Open.

    The veteran Splish Splash (Black), 46-17-8-7, was a finalist in the $60,000 3-8 Mile Derby. She is a 61-pounder born Sept. 2, 2011 out of Kiowa Mon Manny – Patch On Monday.

    Two greyhounds just missed the All Bluffs Run team and received honorable mention status.

    L Tootie (Harlan Brothers), 57-15-6-10, is the grandmother of the team with a birthday of June 4, 2011. The 73-pounder was born out of Kiowa Mon Manny – Slatex Porsche. This is almost a lifetime achievement award as L Tootie has 179 career starts at Bluffs Run that has produced 53 wins and 110 in the money finishes.

    Boc’s Gasguzzier (Boeckenstedt), 47-13-12-6, is another greyhound from the kennel that was overlooked. The 73-pounder, born Jan. 19, 2013 out of Little Andy – Kelsos Mercedes, won the $60,000 3-8 Mile Derby; he was second in the $60,000 Finale and a finalist in the $500,000 Iowa Breeders Classic.

    Greyhounds of the Year 2015 – Boc’s Hank Jr and Boc’s Tony Romo
