    Greyhound Racing $60,000 3/8 DERBY FINALIST
    Posted byadmin on Sunday, June 29 @ 00:55:44 EDT

    The Blake & Black kennel will enter the $60,000 3/8 Mile Derby with three entries. BOW LAIDTHELAW, O YA PATCH and O YA DASHER. The Bean & Stout kennel will enter the finals with two entries, ASTAR DOMINO and ASTAR FLOWER. This could have easily read the other way around with Blake & Black two entries and Bean & Stout three entries. Greyhounds O YA DASHER and A STAR SILVER tied in points however the tie-breaker rules to make the finals are most 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and so on, in the 3/8 Mile Derby qualifying rounds. This gave O YA DASHER the nod to make the finals.

    Having complete control of the $60,000 3/8 Mile Derby qualifying rounds was BOW LAIDTHELAW from the Blake & Black kennel. BOW LAIDTHELAW went undefeated during the $60,000 3/8 Mile Derby qualifying rounds. The last greyhound to accomplish such a feat was MY ZAPPER in 2003. BOW LAIDTHELAW has won four in a row and has won 6 of his last 7 races. He has not ran out of the money in his last 10 starts. BOW LAIDTHELAW is out of (Dodgem by Design – Bow Moneybags) owned by Neal Blake, trained by Linda Willey and racing for the Blake & Black kennel. He should be the favorite going into the finals.

    The Wilhite kennel has found a “Great Pumpkin” with BE MY LIL PUNKIN During the Semi-Finals she broke on top but lost the lead to O YA DASHER, however she did not give up and almost caught O YA DASHER at the wire to finish second. BE MY LIL PUNKIN is the oldest greyhound to make the final 8. She is no stranger to making the finals of the 3/8 Mile Derby, BE MY LIL PUNKIN made it into the finals, second in points with 43, and in the finals of the 2007 3/8 Mile Derby she finished third. She is the only greyhound to make the finals in 2007 and 2008. This year BE MY LIL PUNKIN made it to the finals, second in points with 50. Will she be able to bring the Wilhite kennel a 3/8 Mile Derby winner? The last time the Wilhite kennel won the 3/8 Mile Derby was in 1998. BE MY LIL PUNKIN has not miss the board in her last 9 starts. BE MY LIL PUNKIN is out of Kiowa Sweet Trey – Kaylee Bob) owned by Kenneth and Gary LeFebvre, trained by Gregory Cruz and racing for the Wilhite kennel.

    Final Eight by points:
    BOW LAIDTHELAW - 60 points
    BE MY LIL PUNKIN - 50 points
    O YA PATCH - 48 points
    ASTAR DOMINO - 43 points
    NMS LOOSE CANNON - 41 points
