    COUNCIL BLUFFS, Ia. Ė Four greyhounds entered the quarterfinal round on Wednesday, July 22, of the $60,000 Open at Bluffs Run running perfectly. But all four stumbled to shake up the points standings.

    When the six quarterfinal races were finished, two greyhounds were on top with 40 points each. That number is important; usually a greyhound collecting 40 points in the four qualifying rounds of a Bluffs Run stakes makes the championship race.

    One of new co-leaders is one of the second-round leaders. DS Phoenix (Bean & Stout). Phoenix, 16-6-1-2, was out finished in the homestretch to finish second in Wednesdayís seventh race by a length and a half.

    The other new co-leader is Bocís Tony Romo (Boeckenstedt), 30-13-5-5. Maybe the best finisher in the field, Tony Romo broke sixth in the eighth race and came on to rally in the homestretch to win by a length.

    The co-leaders have posted two wins and a second in the three rounds.

    There is a drop-off to a pair of second round leaders with 34 points each. Both posted fifth place finishes in the quarterfinal races.

    KJís Jomax (Mickim), 30-6-4-7, was second early on in the eighth race before fading to fifth.

    Bocís Hank Jr (Boeckenstedt), 28-18-2-5, had his five-race win streak snapped. He was running second before being bumped and blocked late in dropping to fifth.

    Jumping into the thick of the chase was a pair of quarterfinal round winners, the victories giving each of them 33 points.

    Evolvingsitujhn (Plum Creek), 22-6-4-5, gave a dominating effort in the sixth race in winning by eight and a half lengths.

    UB Bus Punk (Keeper-Red Rock), 16-5-2-2, went from a 23-1 longshot to a five length winner in the third race.

    The fourth of the second turn co-leaders, Barts Bold Ruler (Bartley Corporation), 34-14-6-2, fell in the first turn in the third race and finished last. That left him with 31 points and tied for seventh with two others

    The $60,000 3-8 Mile Derby champion Bocís Gasguzzier (Boeckenstedt), 29-8-7-3, got a big jump up by winning the fifth race by four lengths for his 31 points.

    Illuminate (Filipelli/Miner), 30-7-5-8, finished third in the fifth race for his 31 points.

    At the other side of the points list four greyhounds tied for the final two spots in the field of 24 for the semifinals. Two of the four had first-round wins and that eliminated the other two who did not have wins in the first three rounds.

    Advancing were Thief Inthenight (Plum Creek), 28-6-5-0, and Sweet Cheeses (Filipelli/Miner), 27-7-4-3.

    The semifinal races will be held on Saturday, July 25.
