Palm Beach Kennel Club readies Puppy Stakes round one

11 April 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Round one qualifying action for Palm Beach Kennel Club Poker Room's $20,000 Bob Balfe Puppy Stakes gets underway Wednesday afternoon, 12 April.

A tremendous field of 64 of the track's most promising young up-and-coming racing stars will take to the oval in seven sensational qualifying events. The entire field will return for round two Saturday afternoon, 15 April.

The entries will be halved to 32 for round three Wednesday afternoon, 19 April. The field will then be cut to sixteen for the semifinals on Sunday afternoon, 23 April.

The final eight will comprise the $20,000 Bob Balfe Puppy Stakes field and will take to the track in the championship finale, Saturday afternoon, 29 April.

This year's field is one of the most talented groups of youngsters to compete in recent memory.

Some noticeable standouts Wednesday afternoon include: Race 4 features the well-positioned #1 Bye Bye Felicia (Rico's Vintage – Winding, B & B Racing), #4 Barts Upfront (KC And All – Workhardplayhard, Rader Racing) and the super-early speedster #8 Bigger Pockets (Barcelona Boss – WW's Dove Call, Janie Carroll Kennel).

The Greyhounds in Race 8 will hopefully be wearing garlic around their necks as the impressive #2 Belagosie (Rico's Vintage – Winding, B & B Racing) looks to be in a very favorable post position. Challenging will be #1 Too Tall Bobbied (BD's Grayson – Flying Rosecrest, Arthur Agganis) and #4 Char Vallon (Djays Octane – Hail Storm Bones, James Douglas).

In the final qualifier of the afternoon in Race 15, there is no doubt that the public’s choice will be seven-race season winner #8 B Allstar Garth (WW All Star Owen – Kentucky Ashley, Lester Raines).

Qualifying events will also be held in races 2, 6, 10, 12 and 14.

The Puppy Stakes is named in honor of former Palm Beach Post Time sports columnist and great friend to Greyhound racing Bob Balfe.
