     The first stakes race of the year, the $60,000 Spring Futurity. This race featured the best pups at Bluffs Run.

    The atmosphere inside was a sense of anxiousness. Greyhound lovers were ready for the first stakes champion of the year, at Bluffs Run. The atmosphere outside was a different story. The weather was raining, about 50 and the entire area was under a Winter Storm Warning, that’s right “Winter” in April. That is Iowa racing for you.

    Harlan Bros. Kennel repeats as the Spring Futurity Champion. Last year the Harlan Bros. kennel won the Spring Futurity with Slatex Deal and this year the $60,000 Champion WIND ENERGY won for the Harlan Bros. kennel.

    WIND ENERGY broke on top out of the #6 post and stayed on top the entire race. Going box to wire and becoming the $60,000 Spring Futurity Champion.

    The last time out of the #6 post he broke second, went to the front and pulled away from the field, winning by 7 lengths, and racing his fastest time of 30.00. With this win, Wind Energy has not finished lower than Place in his last 7 starts. More importantly Wind Energy has earned over $66,000 in his career.

    WIND ENERGY is out of (Slatex Striker – Demon Fire) races for the Harlan Bros. Kennel, owned by G. Kirk Harlan and trained by Lori Fortune.

    Purse Breakdown:
    1st – WIND ENERGY - $30,000
    2nd – Barts Encore - $15,000
    3rd – Natural Talent - $6,000
