West Palm Beach, Fl. – Palm Beach Kennel Club kicks off its 2018/19 stake racing season Monday afternoon, September 3, Labor Day, with the twenty-first running of the $20,000 Gallagher / Kinnaird Puppy Stakes.
Eight of the track’s fastest rising young superstars will take to the oval in Monday 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.
We have the early speedsters Open Throttle, O Ya By Favre, Gloom N Doom and O Ya Pawsome. And then we offer you the tremendous first-turn rushers in the sleek forms of Figfin Dancer and Kenny Rogers. And don’t forget the two finalists who drew the best post positions, Seize Tight and Atascocita Morse.
