West Palm Beach, Fl. – Round one qualifying action for Palm Beach Kennel Club’s $20,000 Gallagher / Kinnaird Puppy Stakes gets underway Wednesday afternoon, August 15.
A total of 40 of the track’s most promising up-and-coming superstars will compete in five qualifying events.
All 40 Greyhounds will advance to round two on Saturday afternoon, August 18 and then again in round three, Wednesday afternoon, August 22.
The top 16-point earners from the third round will advance to the Puppy Stakes semifinals, Monday afternoon, August 27.
The $20,000 Gallagher / Kinnaird Puppy Stakes championship final will be contested Monday afternoon, September 3, Labor Day.
This year’s field of youngsters is very interesting. Of the 40 entries, a total of 16 are currently competing in Grade A or Grade B.
That being said, the “early” favorite in the $20,000 Gallagher/Kinnaird Puppy Stakes is Lester Raines Kennel’s O Ya By Favre (Defrim Bale* – O Ya Jennifer). Favre departed Palm Beach Kennel Club last May to take on the best at Southland Greyhound Park, leaving his home track in Grade A with a record of 9-7-1-0-1 and a best time of 29.67 seconds.
O Ya By Favre will be competing in the twelfth race Wednesday afternoon.
Post time for the first race Wednesday afternoon is 1:00 p.m.
Formerly known as the Labor Day Puppy Stakes, this marks the tenth year of its’ popular carnation, named in memory of two Palm Beach County legendary sportscasters, and great friends of Palm Beach Kennel Club, Jim Gallagher and Buck Kinnaird.
Also Wednesday matinee, Palm Beach Kennel Club will be offering a $5,000 guaranteed Pick-4 jackpot on Races 9 through 12.
