    Bocís Executive (Boeckenstedt Kennel) and Blink It (Black) share the lead at the halfway point in the qualifying for the $60,000 Juvenile Stakes at Bluffs Run after the Saturday, June 20, second round. The pair is the only greyhounds to win in each of the two rounds to secure the maximum of 30 points.

    Bocís Executive pounded out a three and a half length win in the eighth and final race of the second round. Executive, a 64-pounder born April 9, 2013 out of Kiowa Mon Manny-Bocís Mc Raisen, moves to 26-11-4-2 on the year. He won in a time of 30.30 seconds for the 5-16 mile course, the fastest time posted in the second round.

    Blink It was a surprise. Sent off by the patrons at 8-1, he outduel Barts Bold Ruler (Bartley Corporation) to win by a length. Blink It, a 73-pounder born Aug. 23, 2013 out of KC And All-Scatillac Bling, moves to 14-5-2-1.

    Barts Bold Ruler, 28-10-6-2, is in a three-way tie for third in the points standings with 25 points. It was disappointing to see prior to the race that Helpme Helpyou (Seastrom-Lovely), 16-7-2-2, was a scratch. Also with 25 points, thanks to second-round wins are Thatswhereits At (Bartley) and Sweet Cheeses (Filipelli/Miner).

    Sweet Cheeses, 20-6-3-2, came from second in the homestretch to trim Barts Trump Card (Bartley) 23-4-7-0 by a head.

    Thatswhereits At, 27-5-6-4, broke sixth then worked to finally get the lead in the homestretch on the way to a four-length decision that finally put him in Grade A.

    Rounding out the top eight in points are three greyhounds that took a step back after first-round wins. XKT Jim Thurber (Keeper-Red Rock) 12-4-2-1 took a third in the dayís first race. He a surprise considering he is still running in Grade C. He has 23 points. Also with 23 points Keeper Ispent It (Keeper-Red Rock) 18-5-2-2 who finished third behind Blink It.

    With 22 points Bocís Red Neck (Boeckenstedt) 25-8-1-2 who finished in a dead heat for third with Son Of Thunder (Keeper-Red Rock) 21-3-7-1 behind Thatwhereits At.

    The field was trimmed to 48 greyhounds for the Wednesday, June 24, quarterfinal round. To make the trim, a greyhound needed to have earned eight points in the first two rounds. Doing some math, a greyhound at Bluffs Run usually needs to earn 40 points to make the final of a stakes series. After the two rounds, 11 greyhounds are not in double digits in points, making their hopes slim in terms of a final berth.
