West Palm Beach, Fl. – The semifinal round of qualifying for our biggest in-house stake race in our 88-year history, the $100,000 Legacy Grand Championship takes place Saturday afternoon, December 5.
The top eight-point earners following the semifinals will compete in the Palm Beach Kennel Club $100,000 Legacy Grand Championship finale on Saturday evening, December 12.
The eight semifinalists who do not make the final will compete in the Andrew Holmes Memorial Award Feature on Legacy night.
Points carryover throughout the entire stake series.
The final round of qualifying events will be held in races 12 and 14.
Lester Raine’s Kennel’s Bug Brush leads all qualifiers with 70 points with four wins and one second-place finish.
