For Immediate Release

September 5, 2019





          West Palm Beach, Fl. – Palm Beach Kennel Club kicks off its 2019/20 stake racing season Saturday afternoon, September 7, with the twenty-second running of the $20,000 Gallagher / Kinnaird Puppy Stakes.

Eight of the track’s fastest rising young superstars will take to the oval in Saturday afternoon’s twelfth race, all going for the honor of being recognized as the summer racing season’s top pup.

This year’s final field features the best of our young super-early speedsters and the finest of the late-kick athletes.

This is such an evenly matched final, it’s hard to determine who the post time favorite will be.

Going by post positions, it appears that three Greyhounds drew into advantageous posts. Rafe Up Theriver will certainly have the room to rush the first turn if he can avoid early contact with Dirty Tricks.

Donta Ripper is in a good spot also is she can maneuver around the strong rushing ability of Midget Wrestling.

The leading point earner in qualifying, Imark Tequila, drew the advantageous eight post, and if he can outrush the strong first-turn rushers to his immediate left, B’s Breva, Flight Tracker and Grean Street, will have a shot at championship gold.

The eight youngsters going for the gold Saturday afternoon:

  1. Dirty Tricks (Flying Coal City – Kebo Cutler, Rader Racing)
