Top 10 Greyhounds at the Palm Beach Kennel Club October 2013

Top 10 Greyhounds at The Palm Beach Kennel Club
October 2013

Awesome start to the Fall season at "The Beach." Many top dogs stayed in top form,but some new stars have come on the scene as well. Lots of new names on the list compared to last month because of the big hitters that came back from breaks. Here are my Top 10 Greyhounds currently running at Palm Beach for October 2013.

#1- Atascocita Golda (545) Suncoast Racing    Last Month ( #1)
 ~ #1 at this track for the 2nd month in a row, but it was a lot closer in my thinking with JS SpeedyPebbles jumping on the scene. Major rush and is almost impossible to catch from behind. 5 out of 6 wins in October and consistently under 30 seconds.  This 2 1/2 year old racer looks strong going forward.

#2- JS SpeedyPebbles (545) Pat Collins/Neola Joe Kennel  Last Month (Not Ranked)
~Unbelieveable run to start her career. 8 straight wins, a track record. Completed the Ladder (M class to A without losing.) Would have been #1 if she got to double digit wins. Would love to see the top 2 here square off regularly.

#3- Flyin Rushing By (545) Steve Gilster Kennel  Last Month ( #2)
~Best rush at the track. Currently on a small break but should be back racing soon.

#4- CRT Outstanding (545) Champions Racing Team Last Month (Not Ranked)
~Reeled off 4 wins in a row in October. Seems to be getting better every month.

#5- Super C Roxee (545) B & B Racing  Last Month (#5)
~Won 3 out of 4 at the end of October, including stopping JS SpeedyPebbles 8 race undefeated streak. Has one of the best rushes at this track but can fade at the end.

#6- Jawa Bruiser (545) Royal Racing  Last Month (Not Ranked)
~Came back from break and has currently won 4 in a row, with blistering under 30 second times. One of the best rushers anywhere in this one. Has really not faded at the end like he used to before his time off.
#7- Atascocita Henri (545) Suncoast Racing  Last Month (Not Ranked)
~Could easily be the best racer at this track once he gets back into form from the 6 month layoff. The wins leader from last year won her 1st race back on 10/29. Look out in November for this racer who has won 55% of his starts all time at "The Beach."

#8- NB's Nice And Easy (545) Royal Racing  Last Month (Not Ranked)
~My buddy Toledo Houndman's racer comes back onto the track and has gotten back into form quickly. Very consistent greyhound, scoring a 20 race streak of finishing in the $$$$ in the last spring/summer season.

#9- KB's Like A Fox (301) Rader Racing Last Month (Not Ranked)
~Liberty Trail only has one win all month long and this young sprinter has come on strong in October. Amazing to me that this is the only racer on this list from the 9 time Kennel Champion Rader Racing.

#10- Macsaurus (545) Douglas Kennel Last Month (Not Ranked)
~Have to put this youngster on the list for completing The Ladder for the 1st time at Palm Beach since 2007. Has struggled the last 4 races but the ladder completion was one of the coolest things I have seen in a while.

Honorable Mention: CRT Majestic, Liberty Trail, Boc's Halapeno, PJ Timeless, Google Search, Nidett, Fusileer, Atascocita Bette, Pat C Navvoo, Palm City Pamela, Kiowa Cain, Relativity, CRT Yusef, CRT Cadishack, Sandra Bullock.

Highlights of the Month
~ Both JS Speedy Pebbles and Macsaurus completing the 1st Ladders at Palm Beach since 2007.
~ JS SpeedyPebbles winning her first 8 career starts.
~ Last years win leader Atascocita Henri returning after a 6 month layoff.
~ Jawa Bruiser and CRT Outstanding both with 4 race winning streaks in the top class.

Not So Good
~Machismo  (Ryan Racing) is now 0-59 all time in wins at Palm Beach. Would owners let this dog keep racing if it gets into the 70's or 80's without a win?

~HKF Scooby (Champions Racing Team) is now 0-49 all time at Palm Beach for wins.

~Liberty Trail only winning 1 time this month and it was in a lower class.
