Can Riverview Stevie Remain Undefeated?
SEMIFINALS FOR PALM BEACH KENNEL CLUB’S $50,000 HE’S MY MAN CLASSIC SUNDAY AFTERNOON, JANUARY 13!
CAN VETERAN RIVERVIEW STEVIE ENTER THE FINALS UNDEFEATED?
West Palm Beach, Fl. - Semifinal action for Palm Beach Kennel Club’s $50,000 He’s My Man Classic takes place Sunday afternoon, January 13.
Two semifinal races will be contested with the top eight point scorers earning their way into the championship final slated for Saturday afternoon, January 19.
After 20 qualifying races, the sweet sixteen in point earnings will go muzzle-to-muzzle to determine which eight of these superstars will be going for the 2013 championship and the $25,000 first-place prize.
Race 12 features the only Greyhound who has an opportunity to enter the championship final undefeated, #5 Riverview Stevie (Kiowa Sweet Trey - CV’s Mama Mia, Rader Racing).
Ever since Stevie returned from a two-month vacation late last year, she has been unstoppable.
A 2012 All-American nominee, Stevie has owned the 545-yard Royal Palm Course, winning all six of her races and all of them in sub-30 second timings.
There is no doubt Riverview Stevie has her work cut out in the Classic semifinals. She will be facing off against her Rader Racing kennel mates #2 O Ya Purecountry (Deerfield Site* - Another Blossom), a two-round victor, and the defending $50,000 He’s My Man Classic champion #3 RK’s Conk Gonk (Dragon Fire - RK’s Tomb Raider). Added into the mix are super-early speedsters #4 Jawa Bruiser (Trent Lee - Jawa Whelton, Royal Racing Team) and the well-positioned #8 San Tan Big Bang (Super Lee - San Tan Geez, Steve Gilster Kennel).
Semifinal Race 14 could be a stake event in its own right. It’s an amazing field of talent to handicap.
Most likely the fan favorite will be the winner of last month’s $20,000 Dick Andrews Futurity, #5 O Ya Billy Bob (Dodgem By Design - O Ya Cranberry, Rader Racing). However, going by post positions, the semifinalists that appear to be in the best spots to make the finals are last year’s $20,000 Gallagher / Kinnaird Puppy Stakes champ #1 Atascocita Henri (Rhythmless - Atascocita Style, Suncoast Kennel) and the consistent athlete #8 Harley Jackie (Rhythmless - Sherri Canary, B & B Racing Kennel).

1. Gable High (Rhythmless - Gable Scrat, B & B Racing)
