    Greyhound Racing $145,000 Iowa Breeders Cup Stakes Final at the Iowa Greyhound Park by Steve Siga

    DUBUQUE, Iowa - Timing is everything.

    Rf River made an early lead stand up on the way to a length’s triumph in the $145,000 Iowa Breeders Cup Stakes at the Iowa Greyhound Park on Saturday, Oct. 22.

    “He is peaking at the right time,” said co-owner (along with Joni Recinos) Alan Hill. “He’s peaked in his last couple of races.”

    Hill was pointing to River’s wins in the last two qualifying rounds of the IBC where she took early leads and won comfortably by three and four lengths.

    Looking back, putting Rf River, a 68-pounder, born Dec. 28, 2014 out of Kc And All – Af Nala, in the IBC was a no brainer.

    “She is one of the better pups in our kennel,” said Hill. ‘We felt she had a chance to make the final. But when she did make the final and we saw the rest of the field, we knew it would be tough.

    ” It helped when Rf River drew the one box “which is a good box for her.”

    Winning a stakes championship “is a combination of having a greyhound” said Hill, “good enough to win, getting the right post and then having a lot of luck.”

    Rf River broke third from her one box, not quite as good a break as the kennel had hoped but her charge to the first turn was decisive. Working the rail, Rf River passed Bs Rebel (Wayne R. Ward), who had popped the three box, halfway down the front stretch.

    Getting into the first turn, River slipped into a length and a half lead. River kept her lead throughout the rest of the race. However it got close late in the homestretch as O Ya Pawtycrasher (Wayne R. Ward) came charging.

    “We knew eight (Pawtycrasher came out of the eight box) is a strong closer,” said Hill.

    But O Ya Pawtycrasher could only get within a length at the wire as Rf River, 27-11-4-3, claimed the title.

    The second-place finish was a double-disappointment for O Ya Pawtycrasher. A victory would have given Pawtycrasher, 32-14-8-5, who was sent to the boxes as the favorite, a share of the 2016 victory championship at IGP.

    Bs Rebel, 31-6-7-3, settled for third, also a length back.

    Three and a half lengths back in fourth was Al’s Flyer (Xtrem Hess), 29-6-6-7.

    In fifth, a length and a half behind Flyer was Jd Accomplice (Stidham), 18-10-4-2, who had been seen as a favorite in some quarters.

    Six lengths back in sixth was Sh Ozaki (Stidham), 31-7-3-7, who was just ahead of Dubuque Classic champion Joeslittlepebble (Copper Kettle), 29-7-6-4. A half-length back of the pair was Dnt Finbarclancy (T And T), 26-8-6-4.

    For the patrons, Rf River paid $7.00, $3.00 and $2.60; Oya Partycrasher paid $2.80 and $2.40; Bs Rebel paid $4.20. The 1-8 quiniela paid $7.60; the 1-8-3 tri-box paid $46.30; the 1-8-3-7 .10 superfecta paid $33.85; the 6-2-1 $1 pick 3 paid $224.20.
