PAT C DEWDROP GLIDES TO VICTORY IN PALM BEACH KENNEL CLUB’S FINAL
$50,000 HE’S MY MAN CLASSIC!
West Palm Beach, Fl. – In both of its incarnations, the only stake race the Koppe, Staats & Collins Kennel had never laid claim to was the $50,000 He’s My Man Classic. And they had only one more chance and one entry to completely fill out their championship racing history.
And they did it!
Pat C Dewdrop rushed the first turn, earning early leader status entering the backstretch. Behind her were early-speed finalists Oshkosh Noisy and Arkans Vega.
As for the rest of the field, heading into the first turn, big-time finisher, Arkansbdchikhiks, was in a great position. But as often happens in the Sport of Queens, was clipped from behind, causing him to get off kilter and go wide, denying Heremecoming and Sarahdipedy from championship gold. The only Greyhound to escape this fate was Lonesome Jones, who stuck to the rail and snuck underneath the traffic jam.
As the contenders barreled down the backstretch towards the final turn, it was clear as to how the outcome was going to be.
Pat C Dewdrop cruised in to an easy two-length victory in a 545-Yard Royal Palm Course clocking of 29.42 seconds, returning a healthy $12.20 win ticket to her happy supporters.
At the first turn, with as much early speed as there was in the finale, the inevitable happened. The dreaded first turn traffic jam which resulted in half the field being taken out of the equation.
For all intent and purposes, the outcome of the championship final had been determined, as the above-mentioned trouble-free foursome had secured their place in the top four with Duxbury leading the way. The question now was by how much the Steve Sarras owned winner of December’s $20,000 Dick Andrews Futurity would win by.
It turned out to be huge and record setting.
Duxbury cruised through the finish line winning by more than six lengths in a stake record clocking of 29.07 seconds and returning $4.00 to her many, many supporters.
Pat C Dewdrop collected a cool $25,000 for her record setting victory!
PJS Its All Me, Bessie Coleman and Magnus Marvel finished second, third and fourth, respectively.
