PALM BEACH KENNEL CLUB PRESENTS THE
$20,000 BOB BALFE PUPPY STAKES CHAMPIONSHIP
SATURDAY AFTERNOON, APRIL 20!
...AND IT’S FAMILY FUN DAY!
West Palm Beach, Fl. - Palm Beach Kennel Club’s youngest racers will take to the stage this Saturday afternoon, April 20, as the championship finale of the $20,000 Bob Balfe Puppy Stakes highlights a day of fun and
excitement for the entire family.
The old saying “It’s anybody’s game” absolutely applies to Saturday afternoon’s championship.
One could make a case for any of the eight “Puppy Prodigies” in contention.
We have the terrific trio of first-turn rushers from B & B Racing Kennel Superior Kotton, Superior Dagger andSuperior Doyle along with the early and late-speed attributes of OL Stewball,Trickapalooza, CH Ragin Rumor, PJ Timeless and Kay Rock Sweet.
“This is one of the most even match-ups in Bob Balfe Puppy Stakes history.”said Palm Beach Kennel Club announcer and handicapper Mike Jameson. “The winner of the championship blanket should be known as the finalists enter the backstretch. Most likely whoever is in the lead as the Greyhounds enter the final turn, will be victorious as not one of these pups likes to give up any ground to the competition.”
The eight Puppy Stakes finalists in post position order:
1. Ol Stewball (Rhythmless - Kind Kelsey, Marsella Racing)
2. Trickapalooza (Gable Sour Cream - Odd Garbo, Brindle Kennel)
3. Superior Kotton (KC And All - USS Grateful, B & B Racing Kennel)
