    Greyhound Racing 2nd Round of Iowa Breeder Race at Blufffs Run by Steve Sigafoose

    Three greyhounds lead the points parade as the qualifying rounds for the $500,000 Iowa Breeders Classic reached the halfway mark with the second round races on Saturday, Oct. 17.

    The leaders have each won in both rounds to pick up the maximum of 30 points.

    The track win leader Bocís Hank Jr (Boeckenstedt), 37-22-4-6, ran off to an impressive eight length decision. That tied Helpme Helpyou (Seastrom-Lovely) for producing the roundís largest margin of victory.

    The $60,000 3-8 Mile Derby champion Bocís Gasguzzier (Boeckenstedt), 43-13-10-6, broke last and had to rally from fourth place in the homestretch to win by a head.

    The Hardison Kennelís No Big Deal, 45-16-7-5, is the other tri-leader. A finalist in the recent $60,000 Finale, he won by two lengths.

    Four greyhounds are a step back with 25 points, meaning they have a win and a second in the first two rounds.

    Bocís Sailfish (Boeckenstedt), 40-17-9-6, with two stakes ($60,000 Secretaryís Choice and $60,000 Finale) wins this season, got a second after early traffic. Auto Tune (Hardison), 39-9-4-2, was a neck short of collecting a second win.

    Enjoying Life (Plum Creek), 22-6-6-2, went box-to-wire from the one box to win by two lengths in her second round race. Jd Debutante (Seastrom Ė Lovely), 47-8-3-8, had a box-to-wire run from the two box for a lengthís win.

    Two greyhounds are next with 23 points, based on a win and a third-place finish in the first two rounds.

    MMís Good To Go (Petzold), 19-4-2-3, opened the second round with a half-length win. XKT Fred Dodge (Keeper-Red Rock), 25-6-5-4, had a troubled run in finishing third in the second round.

    In deep trouble among the pre-stakes favorites is Bocís Tony Romo (Boeckenstedt), 43-20-5-8. The $60,000 Open champion has twice struggled with traffic and has only a third and a fourth to show for a total of 14 points. Basically, he will probably need a pair of wins to qualify for the championship.

    At the other end of the points list, five greyhounds tied for the final three spots with 11 points. KC Double Dealin (Bean & Stout) and Dkís Immortal (Hardison) advanced because of second-place finishes. Bís Thatís My Jam (Bartley Corporation) advanced because of the fastest race time during the qualifying rounds among the other three greyhounds.

    The remaining field of 48 greyhounds returns to action for the Wednesday, Oct. 21, quarterfinals.
