Top 10 Greyhounds Palm Beach Kennel Club December 2013

Top 10 Greyhounds Palm Beach Kennel Club December 2013

Another exciting month of racing action has been completed at the Palm Beach Kennel Club and the action couldn't be any better right now!  Heading into the new year, there are many racers here that could make a case to be on this Top 10 list. Here are my Top 10 racers currently racing at "The Beach."

#1 Rob Gronkowski ~ 545 Yard Racer ~ Rader Racing
~Last month ranking #1 (Two straight months at the top)
~3 wins this month

Simply the best racer here and possibly the entire country. The "Gronk" holds the Royal Palm Course time record of 29.02 that he set last month and also held a 9 race winning streak at this track before being upset by San Tan Chisholm on 12/26. The best rush anywhere out of the box and has amazed fans with his unreal length of victories over the competition. Gronk will race in the He's My Man Classic starting on New Years Day at Palm Beach, where he will be a heavy favorite. After that, owner Steve Sarras has confirmed to multiple sources that Gronk will move over to Mardi Gras for the World Classic Stakes Event held there at the end of January. Making a case for being one of the best racers that has ever raced here.

#2 JS SpeedyPebbles ~545 Yard Racer ~ Pat Collins/Neola Joe Kennel
~Last month #2 (Same ranking)
~3 wins this month

The Dick Andrews Futurity champion has been outstanding since bursting on the scene this Fall. Has won 13 of the 16 races (81%) of her races and has blazed a 29.24 Royal Palm Course time this season.  The best rookie this track has ever seen. As track announcer Mike Jameson has said, this is the best female running here by far.  With Gronk moving on to Hollywood next month, will there be a change at #1 in January and beyond?

#3 KB's Like A Fox ~ 301 Yard Super Sprint Racer ~ Rader Racing
~Last Month #4 (Up 1 spot)
~5 wins this month

The best sprinter at "The Beach." Has 20 super sprint wins on the season and has won 12 of his last 15 races (80%).  Track announcer FasTrak Dale proclaims this is the best sprinter in the country and it is hard to blame him.  Fox has 4 of the top 10 race times this season on the super sprint course and doesn't mind box position because he has had success in any assignment. When Bae Sang comes back from Southland Park, this super sprint season will really heat up with BlackJack Bryce also having a bunch of success.

#4 Relativity ~ 545 Yard Racer ~  James E. Douglas Racing
~Last Month #8 (Up 4 spots, biggest mover on this list)
~5 wins this month

~My Facebook pal Chris Straka's racer has become a beast in the month of December. Has won 6 out of 7 races and went under 30 seconds in all of those. Started off as an inside rail racer but has expanded his game to any box assignment. The most amazing stat I have seen with Relativity is that in all of his races since coming to PB in April, he has never given up the lead once he has it. Look for "Einstein" to possibly steal the He's My Man Classic if Gronk or SpeedyPebbles falter.

#5 Jawa Bruiser ~545 Yard Racer ~ Royal Racing Team
~Last month #5 (Same Ranking)
 ~2 wins this month

~One of the best lid flippers around. Has finished in 1st or 2nd in 14 of the last 15 races. Had some absolute classic races with Atascocita Golda in the last few months.  Is a box to wire specialist but does have a little close as well. Really came back as a superior racer in September after a 2 month layoff.  Has won 47% of his races this season. Outside chance of challenging for the He's My Man Classic.

#6 BlackJack Bryce ~ 301 Yard Super Sprint Racer ~Champions Racing Team
~Last month #8 (Up 2 spots)
~4 wins this month

The other superstar sprinter here. Has won 8 out of the last 10 races. Has won 58% of the races he has been in this season. I really would like to see a rivalry start between Bryce and Like A Fox because it would be some classic races guaranteed. 

#7 Super C Roxee ~545 Yard Racer~ B & B Racing
~Last month #10 (Up 3 spots)
~3 wins this month

~The ultimate box to wire specialist. She has won 51% of her races this season and is right up there with any lid popper speed around. Roxee is consistently near the front of the pack during her races but still has one of the worst fades on this list, which pushes down her rankings.  Look for Roxee to continue to win many races here at Palm Beach.

#8 Atascocita Golda ~ 545 Yard Racer ~ Suncoast Racing
~Last month #3 (Down 5 spots)
~2 wins this month

~One of my favorite racers here because of the way she runs. Encourages contact and runs hard every race. You can really see though that her game is starting to tire.  2 wins on the month is startling to me and her times have also not been consistent with what she was putting up this Summer and most of Fall.  I'm hoping that Suncoast puts this one on break for a while because rest should bring this racer back to the former #1 racer form she had going. Still is the wins leader with 23 but KB's Like A Fox is right on her tail with 20.

#9 San Tan Spangled ~ 545 Yard Racer ~Steve Gilster Kennel
~Last month-Not Ranked
~3 wins this month

~One of the really up and comer racers here. Has won 7 out of 11 races this season and has finished in the top 3 in all of those races. Should make the Final of the He's My Man Classic.

#10 Legally Buzzed~ 660 Yard Long Distance Racer~ Marsella Racing
~Last Month- Not Ranked
~4 wins this month

~The newest 660 yard long distance sensation.  Switched to the long distance and immediately went on a 4 race winning streak.  With Flying Zinc on a break, this young racer has a chance to put up a lot of wins at this distance.  Is there anything more wide open then the 660 at this place?  Seems like I have a new sensation on here every month at this distance.

Honorable Mention: CRT Yusef (Just barely off this list), JS Big Mac, NB's Nice and Easy, CRT Majestic, Bazooka Joe, Kay Rock Sweet, TF Chucky Slick, JS Froot Loops, Inner Circle, Atascocita Bette, Flying The Who, San Tan Chisholm, TF Ashley, Charlie Sheen, Kiowa Frank Lazy, CRT Quin, PWS Cadishack, NB's Perazzi, CRT Outstanding, Fusileer, PJ Timeless, Smokey Joe.

Racers Not Currently Racing
~Atascocita Henri
~Flying Rushin By
~Flying Zinc

December Highlights

~JS SpeedyPebbles winning the $20,000 Dick Andrews Futurity on December 26th.

~Rob Gronkowski destroying the fields he was in and giving him the chance to go under 29 seconds in the 545 yard distance every time he races.

~KB's Like A Fox and BlackJack Bryce lighting up the super sprint field.

~Rader Racing and B&B Racing going toe to toe for the Kennel Championship. Rader just took over the wins lead at the end of the month. With Norm Rader bringing over many quality Gulf Greyhound dogs to this track, you will probably see Rader Racing win its 10th straight Championship this summer.

~Saw that former Palm Beach racer Machismo FINALLY won a race! Was 0-63 at Palm Beach and transferred to Sanford Orlando. Won his 3rd race and then continued on with another win in his next one.  Good transfer because Jerry Burns was getting nervous about his futility record.

December Lows

~TDS Gator has now lost 60 consecutive races at Palm Beach and is now just 13 races away from tying the futility streak of Jerry Burns.

~Another month of not seeing the 2012 Wins Champion Atascocita Henri. Suncoast has stayed silent on why we have not seen him racing.

Have a Happy New Year and enjoy the He's My Man Classic starting New Years Day!

Top 10 Greyhounds Palm Beach Kennel Club November 2013

Top 10 Greyhounds November 2013
Palm Beach Kennel Club

What an outstanding month of racing at the Palm Beach Kennel Club! From records being broken again this month, to top racers returning to the track, PBKC was again the home of the best racing around.  Here are my Top 10 Greyhounds currently racing at "The Beach" for November 2013.

1. Rob Gronkowski ~ 545 Yd. Racer ~ Rader Racing
Last Month- Not Ranked 

~The Fall Puppy Stakes champion took off for Southland in September but came back to Palm Beach on November 23rd. Not only did he dominate the field upon his return, he broke the Royal Palm Course Record by blitzing a 29.02 time.  With an unreal rush out of the box, this greyhound has a chance to become one of the all time greats this track has ever seen. Should be around at Palm Beach during the Winter Stakes season, but will travel around the country to dominate other tracks during their big stakes seasons.  Absolutely has a chance to break 29 seconds and possibly lower the track record to a time that may never be beat.  Finished 8th in the National UGR Top 10 poll, the only Palm Beach racer on this list. With George Quinn of Greyhound News, this is our favorite greyhound here.

2. JS SpeedyPebbles ~ 545 Yd. Racer ~ Pat Collins/ Neola Joe Kennel
Last Month #2 (Same Ranking)

~ Another classic greyhound from the Pat Collins/Neola Joe Kennel, this youngster returned from injury on November 26th and blazed a 29.59 time for the win. The only racer ever in track history to win her first 8 starts, she has now won 10/11 races all time here. Right up there with the best breakers around. Right now is the favorite to win the Puppy Stakes come March. The Winter Stakes season should be outstanding with these top 2 going head to head. Superstar potential with this racer.

3. Atascocita Golda~ 545 Yd. Racer ~ Suncoast Racing
Last Month #1 (Down 2 spots)

~If it wasn't for the Gronk coming back and JS SpeedyPebbles having the best start of any greyhound racer ever at PB,  this would be the #1 dog here. Was on top of my Top Ten List for September and October.  With 21 wins out of 30 races on the season, Golda has one of the best lip flipper breaks at this track. This is an old school greyhound who doesn't shy away from contact and really doesn't care what box she is in as well.  Ran a 29.32 time earlier in the season and won 4 races in the month of November.  Might give JS SpeedyPebbles a run for her money if they get paired up in the coming months. The Queen of Palm Beach without a doubt as my track announcer buddy Mike Jameson would say.

 4. KB's Like A Fox ~ 301 Yd. Super Sprint ~Rader Racing
Last Month #9 (Up 5 spots)  

~The best sprinter at Palm Beach right now. Has won 9 out of the last 11 races and has been in the money 15 out of 16 times (94%).  Whenever Bae Sang comes back from Southland, it will be really interesting to see if this dominance continues. As for right now, this is Like A Fox's super sprint course until somebody takes it back.

5. Jawa Bruiser~ 545 Yd. Racer ~ Royal Racing Team 
Last Month #6 (Up 1 spot)

~One of the best rushers this track has right now. FasTrak Dale's favorite hound has now put a little close on to his game to go along with that initial speed.  Best win of the month came on 11/30 when he out dueled Golda on the backstretch to win the Season Kickoff Showcase Race.  Had a 5 race win streak into the month of November. Impressive greyhound.

6. Flying Zinc ~ 660 Yd. Long Distance Racer ~Royal Racing Team 
Last Month ~ Not Ranked

~Right now is the best 3/8th's miler here. Has the season's fastest time of 37.40 and won 4 out of 5 races this month.  This racer will be rated much higher next month if she keeps it up, but many of us have seen racers have a bit of success on this course for a little while and then struggle. Looking forward to her races in December.

7. Kiowa Frank Lazy ~ 545 Yd. Racer ~ James E. Douglas Kennel
Last Month ~ Not Ranked

~Had a 4 race winning streak in the top class up until the Season Kickoff race on 11/30, that had Golda, Bruiser and Roxee all in it.  Was 1st or 2nd in in all 7 races this month except for that race. Did beat Atascocita Golda out of the 1 box on 11/23. Just 1 and a half years old, this racer should be fun to watch here for a while.

8.  BlackJack Bryce ~ 301 Yd. Super Sprint Racer ~ Champions Racing Team
Last Month ~ Not Ranked  

~First time since I started doing this list in June that I have two super sprinters in the Top 10...and why not with this speedster winning 5 out of 7 races this month.  Is one of the only sprinters I have seen that prefers the 8 box.  Usually one of the worst boxes for this race, Bryce has won 80% of his races from the outside.  Hoping for Like A Fox and Bryce to match up more in December.

9. Relativity ~ 545 Yd. Racer ~ James E. Douglas Racing
Last Month ~ Not Ranked

~My Odd Squad buddy Chris Straka's racer continues to have a lot of success here at "The Beach." Now 13 wins on the season, including winning her last race on 11/30. "Einstein" loves mid track and amazingly has never given up a lead once she has gotten it in the backstretch since coming to PB in April.  Look out for the Puppy Stakes Finalist to continue his winning this Winter.

10.  Super C Roxee ~ 545 Yd. Racer ~ B & B Racing
Last Month ~ #5 (Down 5 Spots)

~One of the top wins leaders of the season with 14 wins, this racer is an early speed specialist.  Needs the lead to win because she does have a bit of a fade on the homestretch. Won twice in this month and can consistently go under 30 seconds for stretches. This racer as Randy Birch would say "Has the ability to go pinggggggg out of the box for the win."

Honorable Mention
CRT Majestic, CRT Outstanding, San Tan Spangled, CRT Offensive, NB's Nice and Easy, Daphne Zuniga, Cals Flip Flop, Atascocita Bette, Palm City Pamela, Boc's Jalapeno, Hilco Score, Fusileer, Liberty Trail.

*Racers not racing that would be considered: Atascocita Henri, Flying Rushin By.

November Highlights

~Rob Gronkowski breaking the 545 Royal Palm Course record on 11/23 with a time of 29.02 upon his return from Southland Park. 

~JS SpeedPebbles winning her 10th race out of 11 starts this month.

~Kiowa Frank Lazy bursting on the "A" class scene this Fall and winning 4 in a row in the top "A" class.

~HKF Scooby (Champions Racing Team) winning his 1st race in 49 tries on 11/19

~WW's Review (Agganis Kennel) winning his 1st race in 37 tries on 11/21

Not So Good

~Machismo (Ryan Racing)  is still winless at 64 straight races and is putting a serious pursuit on for futility at this track.  The record for Palm Beach is 73 held by Jerry Burns.  Machismo is not currently slated for a race coming up, so it will be interesting to see what owners do with with this racer in the near future.

~Atascocita Henri (Suncoast Racing) is on another break after winning 2 straight races coming off a 6 month layoff.  Anyone with a Suncoast connection please let me know what is going on with the 2012 wins leader.

~Rusty The Lure blowing a tire and getting his tail handed to him after the finish line by 8 greyhounds on 11/22. Only funny because it didn't effect the results of that race and there wasn't a significant delay for the next races. Give Rusty a break though. He runs more schooling and regular races then any other lure in America. He'll be back everyday so that all of the Palm Beach announcers can say the famous opening line, "Heeeeerrrreeeeeee Comeessss Rusty!!!"

Good luck to all racers and owners going forward into December!

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.

Best Rushers
#1 Flyin Rushin By
#2 Jawa Bruiser
#3 Atascocita Golda

Best Kennels
#1 Rader Racing
#2 B& B Racing
#3 Pat Collins/Neola Joe

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.

Top 10 Greyhounds Palm Beach Kennel Club September 2013

Here are the Top 10 Greyhounds at the Palm Beach Kennel Club for September 2013:

#1 Atascocita Golda
~Best racer at Palm Beach and it's not even close right now. Has won 7 out of the last 8 races.  Looks primed to be the best here at "The Beach" for a long time unless owners transfer her.

#2 Flying Rushin By
~Best rusher in the 545.  Has been much better about closing races, even though her leads are so gigantic at the beginning it is hard to tell.  Would love to see a rivalry start between this one and Golda.

#3 Kiowa Cain 
~The pride of Monarch Greyhounds stormed on the scene this month with 4 straight wins. This includes a blistering 29.20 in the 545.

#4 Relativity
~Odd Squad member Chris Straka owns this dog and she really has become elite this month. "Einstein" won 4 times in September, including making the Puppy Stakes final on Labor Day. Getting better every race.

# 5 Super C Roxee
~Roxee is the #2 best rusher out of the box behind Rushin By.  Had 4 wins in September and also had a recent 7 race winning streak snapped. Barely 2 years old, should be able to keep running well for a while.

#6 Atascocita Bette
 ~The newest sensation at Palm Beach  went from the "J" class all the way to the top "A" class before losing.  Has excellent rush out of the box. Barring injury, this is a serious threat to the top spots on this list.

#7 Liberty Trail
~The veteran sprinter is still the best sprinter here but has slowed down in this monthOnly won twice in this month, but that is only because in one of her 1 box assignment races, she escaped from the handler and escaped. Should get back on track in October.

#8 Nidett
~The veteran 660 long distance racer got back in the winning swing this month. Won 3 times after being put back where she belongs after the failed experiment at the shorter 545 distance.

#9 Google Search
~A surprise here I know but this racer may have the best close of this field. Beat Super C Roxee on 9/21 and barely missed another win 5 days later as Roxee barely nipped her off. Getting better every month.

#10 CRT Majestic
~Won 3 times this month, with some impressive mid 29 second runs. 

Honorable Mention: Pws Cadishack, Palm City Pamela, Boc's Jalapeno, Superior Dune, Ethereal Elation, CRT Yusef, CRT Kimmy, JS Angel Touch, Daphne Zuniga, Kiowa Raphael.

Not So Good:

Machismo- 0-54 for wins all time at Palm Beach continues for this Ryan Racing hound. Yikes. 

*Sad to see Rob Gronkowski transfer to Southland but there are some really quality racers in the "A" class right now. Watch out for Golda in October, as we may see a double digit win streak coming soon from her.

Top 10 Greyhounds Palm Beach Kennel Club August 2013

We have finished up the August season of racing at the Palm Beach Kennel Club and my Top 10 list is ready to roll!  Here is the Top 10 current racers at "The Beach" for the month of August 2013.

1. Rob Gronkowski- (A) Rader Racing ~ 545 Yd. Distance

~This one is a no brainer.  4 wins in August and a blistering time of 29.15 tied for the 4th fastest time ever on the Royal Palm Course.  Amazingly, this early burner has never gotten the favorable 1 box and has still won 22 out of 34 races all time (65%) in his young career.  He is set to run in the Labor Day Puppy Stakes as the heavy favorite.  Look for Gronk to continue his dominance into the Fall season.

2. Atascocita Golda (A) Suncoast Racing ~ 545 Yd. Distance

~This racer was frustrating players and fans alike with her inconsistent runs she was displaying just a few months ago.  That has all been forgotten.  This lid flipper won 5 races in August and is currently on a 4 race winning streak.  One thing I have noticed is that this greyhound can cut corners better then any racer at Palm Beach.  Watch her take a corner in her replays and you will see what I mean.  CRT Yusef has been a rival all month, but it is hard to call it a rivalry when Golda won 4 out of 5 of those races.  Look for Golda and Gronk to get matched up frequently once Fall hits, which should make for some epic races.

3. Flying Rushin By (A) Steve Gilster Kennel~ 545 Yd. Racer

~The fabulous one jumps up to 3rd on the list for August.  Since June 2nd, this greyhound has led around the final curve in every race.  Incredible.  The only flaw you can find in this greyhound is that it can be a bit short.  Just when you think you have a greyhound in your play that can beat this racer, she goes box to wire with that insane rush making you shake your head at why you doubted her.  This hound has also hit the doggie $$$$ (top 4) in every race since May 27th. That is consistency that should continue into September.

4. Kiowa Kay Fannie (A) Royal Racing Team~ 545 Yd. Racer

~ This 2 1/2 year old greyhound has really stepped her game up in August.  Has won 4 out of 6 races and is starting to add a solid rush to go along with that dynamic close.  Consistently under 30 seconds, she was in the money in every race since the beginning of July until a mishap in the turn took her out last time out.  I believe there are a bunch more wins coming from this greyhound in the future. Move your Fannie!!!!

5. Relativity (A) James Douglas Kennel~ 545 Yd. Racer

~The Puppy Stakes has been a coming out party for the young racer owned by fellow Odd Squad member Chris Straka.  The early speedster won 4 races in August, including the shocking win on August 17th over The Gronk.  He is the main threat to beat The Gronk on Labor Day and has become a fan favorite of many race fans this month.  The more races this hound gets under his belt, look out for a bunch of wins to come his way.

6. CRT Yusef (A) Champions Racing Team~ 545 Yd. Racer

~This racer would be much higher on the list if it didn't go head to head with Atascocita Golda and Flying Rushin By all the time.  This racer only won one race in August but it was a classic rundown of Golda at the wire.  Finished 2nd four times and went under 30 seconds in all of his August races but 1. Has an outstanding close and now has added a solid rush to go along with it. Watch out for this dog to challenge the track's best in the coming months.

7. Liberty Trail (A) Champions Racing Team~ 301 Yd. Sprinter

~The current best sprinter at "The Beach" won twice in the month of August but has struggled in a few races.  Was beaten by Palm City Patton twice in the month and is getting out rushed by some racers that usually wouldn't be in her league.  It might be time for a break but at only 2 and a half years old in this distance, look for Liberty Trail to run off a bunch of wins in the near future.

8. Ethereal Elation (A) Royal Racing Team~ 545 Yd. Racer

~Won her 1st three races in the Puppy Stakes and has showed a fabulous close in the month of August.  This racer has hit the $$$$ 9 out of 11 races this season (82%) and has an outside chance to beat the Gronk and Relativity in the Puppy Stakes Final.

9. PWS Cadishack (A) Agganis Kennel~ 545 Yd. Racer

~ Was 1st or 2nd in all August races but 1 (5 out of 6- 83%) and combines a solid rush with a deadly close.  Consistently under 30 seconds and a constant threat to win in the top class, Cadishack should see the winner's circle many more times this season.

10. Miss Prissy (A) Rader Racing ~ 660 Yd. Racer

~A surprise to many but won't be as soon as more people see this racer run. True, she has no "A" wins.  But, the 660 racers are not impressive at all right now at Palm Beach before Stakes Season starts. This racer has jumped on the 660 scene with that fabulous close and has won 2 out of the 3 races she was in.  Should be able to take on the top competition immediately.  Her real test to this ranking will be in her 1st "TA" race on September 4th.

Honorable Mention: Roca, CRT Outstanding, Superior Dune, Super C Roxee, CRT Marisol, Kay Rock Sweet, Vagrant, Palm City Patton, San Tan Snuggles, Palm City Cameo, NB's Perazzi.
