    DUBUQUE, Ia. – Third round victories by Rock A By Shu Box and Pat C Rap Rap in the $30,000 Dubuque Classic Stakes on Friday, August 28, led the charge into the championship race at the Iowa Greyhound Park.

    This was the second straight win for Rock A By Shu Box (Jackson Greyhounds), a 61-pounder, born July 31, 2013 out of Bd’s Grayson – Roc A By Cheetos. That’s a nice comeback after she opened the Classic with a fourth-place effort. The third-round win was a box-to-wire blast from the four box as she pulled away for a seven-length decision. Shu Box goes into the final with a 17-5-1-2 record.

    Pat C Rap Rap (Collins-Schmidt) needed her third-round win, having collected only 13 points in the first two rounds. Sent off as the 27-1 longshot in the third-round race, the 68-pounder, born Feb. 20, 2013 out of Jd Titanium – Pat C Bs Rapidly, went box-to-wire from the two box to win by three and a half lengths to give her 33 points. Her time of 39.88 was the better of the two third-round races on the Dubuque course. Rap Rap moves into the final with a 17-3-2-1 record.

    Second in the points and the most consistent of the finalists was Princess Maddy (Copper Kettle). The 62-pounder, born June 8, 2011 out of Rhythmless – Kind Kelsey, had a second-round win and two seconds for a total of 44 points. Maddy moves into the final with a record of 13-3-2-1. Will Bill Reeves (Copper Kettle) had a win, a second and a third in the Classic to finish with 40 points. He saw his six-race win streak snapped in the Classic and moves into the final with a 15-6-1-5 record.

    Bs Greed (Copper Kettle) finished with 36 points thanks to a win and two thirds. He has a 20-2-5-6 record.

    Ms Makenna (Jackson Greyhounds) advanced despite a sixth-place finish in the third round. She had a first and a second in the earlier rounds and finished with 34 points. Overall, Makenna has a 19-4-4-3 record.

    Two greyhounds complete the final field with 25 points each. Boc’s Sydney (Boeckenstedt), 16-2-4-3, started with a pair of seconds and had to survive a seventh place in the third round. O Ya Sweet Annie (Superior), 6-2-1-1, rallied for a second place in the third round to get her 25 points.

    There was a clean cut in the points. Two greyhounds topped the eliminated list with 23 points each, Pat C Pownzer (Collins-Schmidt) and Pat C Unplugged (Collins-Schmidt). Both won in the first round for 20 point, then struggled in the next two rounds.

    By the numbers, the final has six females in the field. The Copper Kettle Kennel has three finalists and the Jackson Greyhound Kennel has two.

    The championship race of the $30,000 Dubuque Classic Stakes will be run on Friday, Sept. 4.
