    Greyhound Racing Dogs Run for 5 Year Old

    Two prize-winning greyhounds from Harrah's Bluffs Run have been donated to a local boy diagnosed with leukemia.

    . Five-year-old Cole Jipsen from Griswold, IA was diagnosed with leukemia November 8, 2004. To help with the overwhelming costs of healthcare, the Bryon Legg and Plum Creek Kennels have each given the family a champion greyhound to help pay for medical needs.

    “As good as the dogs have been to me, I'm happy to return the favor to this family,” says David Robinette, Plum Creek Kennel owner.

    “The competition is tough at Bluffs Run,” says Bryon Legg, owner of Bryon Legg Kennel. “We each chose the best dog from our group to earn money for this family and bring attention to this important cause.”

    As part of a half interest agreement, the family receives half all purse money these dogs win at Harrah's Bluffs Run for their entire career. Per the agreement, the family owns the dogs and receives the money, but doesn't assume the burden of maintaining the dog.

    “My wife Amber and I are very grateful to all the people who care for our son,” says Kevin Jipse n, Cole's father. “They'll never know how much we appreciate all the help everyone has given us.”

    The two greyhounds, Speedy Blue from the Bryon Legg Kennel won the first two of his races and Jipsen's Dream of the Plum Creek Kennel has won his first race.
