    The 2009 Spring Futuritywill have 96 entries.

    The Spring Futurity started at Bluffs Run in 1999. In 1999 the Spring Futurity only had 32 entries. In 2000 the entries went up to 52, and then from 2001 to 2004 we had 64 entries. 2005 we had 61 entries, but 2006 to 2008 we returned to 64 entries.

    To qualify as an entry into the Spring Futurity the greyhound had to be under 26 months of age by March 10, AND must have won a grade “M” race at Bluffs Run.

    Each kennel entered greyhounds they wanted into the $60,000 Spring Futurity. The kennels selected two primary entries from their kennel. Those primary entries would make the field of 96 as long as they meet the qualifying requirements. With the kennels primary entries (28) the remaining entries, (74) would be based on Grade, Wins, Seconds, Thirds, Fourths, Random Draw to get the entries from 102 to 96.

    The 2009 $60,000 Spring Futurity will start with 96 greyhounds and on April 4, the finals, one greyhound will become the 2009 $60,000 Spring Futurity. The champion of the Spring Futurity could become the next Bluffs Run phenom.

    The $60,000 Spring Futurity starts Wednesday, March 18. All 96 greyhounds will return for the second round on Saturday, March 21. Only 48 greyhounds will compete in the Quarter-finals held on Wednesday, March 25. The Semi-Finals of 24 greyhounds will be held on Saturday, March 28. With a week break the final 8 will compete in the Finals on Saturday, April 4.
