    Greyhound Racing ROOKIE McQUEEN $60,000 HORSESHOE CHALLENGE

    It was a rainy day. The race track was a muddy mess. This would add to the challenge of the race.



    Rookie Mcqueen broke along the rail where the track was the deepest. Coming out of the first turn Rookie Mcqueen found himself running third, but he was in a better position on the track, out of the deep part in the middle of the track. Heading into the far turn it looked like the race was between Bow Spotlite and Barts Paradox, however Rookie Mcqueen had something to say about that. Rookie Mcqueen found another gear passing Bow Spotlite and Barts Paradoxx like they were standing still. Rookie Mcqueen stayed off the rail to win the race.

    Who Is With Me is a litter mate to Nascardotcom. Nascardotcom finished second in the $60,000 Spring Futurity and litter mate Who Is With Me finished the same, second in the $60,000 Horseshoe Challenge.

    What used to be a rarity, getting four greyhounds into the finals of a stakes race at Bluffs Run is becoming a standard. The Plum Creek kennel won big in the $60,000 Horseshoe Challenge finishing first, second, fourth and seventh, winning over $49,500 out of the $60,000 purse.
