    Greyhound Racing 2015 All Bluffs Run Team by Steve Sigafoose

    There is something fitting that the final All Bluffs Run Team Greyhound of the Year award should be shared and that an extra box had to be build into the starting block as nine greyhounds, instead of the usual eight, made the team.

    But that is exactly what happened as a field of 29 candidates was narrowed down in the process to determine who was to be honor for the last time at Bluffs Run.

    Sharing the Greyhound of the Year award was the Boeckenstedt Kennel duo of Boc’s Hank Jr and Boc’s Tony Romo.

    Boc’s Hank Jr, a 75-pounder born Feb. 5, 2013 out of Kiowa Mon Manny – Boc’s Miss Rodeo, topped the Bluffs Run win list with a 46-27-5-7 record. He capped his season by winning the $500,000 Iowa Breeders Classic, had a third place finish in the $60,000 Secretary’s Choice and was finalist in the $60,000 Bluffs Run Open. It could be argued that Hank was maybe the most talented greyhound at the track in 2015.

    If Hank wasn’t, then the most talented greyhound was Boc’s Tony Romo, a 71-pounder born March 27, 2013 out of Flying Penske – Boc’s Slim N Fit. Romo’s highlight was winning the $60,000 Open, probably Bluffs Run’s toughest stakes race. He was also second in the $60,000 3-8 Mile Derby and a finalist in the $60,000 Secretary’s Choice. None of the greyhounds at Bluffs Run had a better finishing kick than Tony Romo.

    Here is the rest of the All Bluffs Run team, in no particular order.

    Barts Bold Ruler (Bartley Corporation Kennel), 45-18-9-3, was an impressive second in the $60,000 Open and a finalist in the $60,000 Juvenile. He is a 73-pounder, born May 26, 2013 out of Pacific Mile – Barts Companion.

    Boc’s John Luke (Boeckenstedt), 33-10-4-4, was Bluffs Run’s Greyhound of the Year in 2014 when he won a pair of stakes titles. The 74-pounder, born Sept. 2, 2011 out of Super Lee – Antsie Nancy got better as the season went on with his highlight a solid third place finish in the $500,000 Iowa Breeders Classic.

    Boc’s Sailfish (Boeckenstedt), 46-19-9-7, was overshadowed in his own kennel despite winning two stakes titles. The 70-pounder, born July 31, 2012 out of Djays Octane – Boc’s Mc Raisen, won the $60,000 Secretary’s Choice in May and the $60,000 Finale in September. He was also third in the $60,000 Open and the finalist in the $500,000 Iowa Breeders Classic. Helpme Helpyou (Seastrom-Lovely), 37-15-4-2, took second in the $60,000 Secretary’s Choice and made the final of both the $60,000 Finale and the $500,000 Iowa Breeders Classic. The 74-pounder was born Aug. 3, 2013 out of Djays Octane – Ocean Avenue.

    No Big Deal (Hardison), 54-19-10-6, was an impressive second in the $500,000 Iowa Breeders Classic and was also a finalist in the $60,000 Finale. No Big Deal is an 82-pounder, born April 4, 2013 out of Flying Coal City – Niesi.

    O Ya Spunky (Bartley Corporation), 59-18-12-8, is a 69-pounder. He was born March 4, 2013 out of Kiowa Sweet Trey – O Ya Queenie. Spunky was a finalist in the $60,000 Open.

    The veteran Splish Splash (Black), 46-17-8-7, was a finalist in the $60,000 3-8 Mile Derby. She is a 61-pounder born Sept. 2, 2011 out of Kiowa Mon Manny – Patch On Monday.

    Two greyhounds just missed the All Bluffs Run team and received honorable mention status.

    L Tootie (Harlan Brothers), 57-15-6-10, is the grandmother of the team with a birthday of June 4, 2011. The 73-pounder was born out of Kiowa Mon Manny – Slatex Porsche. This is almost a lifetime achievement award as L Tootie has 179 career starts at Bluffs Run that has produced 53 wins and 110 in the money finishes.

    Boc’s Gasguzzier (Boeckenstedt), 47-13-12-6, is another greyhound from the kennel that was overlooked. The 73-pounder, born Jan. 19, 2013 out of Little Andy – Kelsos Mercedes, won the $60,000 3-8 Mile Derby; he was second in the $60,000 Finale and a finalist in the $500,000 Iowa Breeders Classic.
