Excitement grows as the greyhound world gets ready for the 2016 BetAmerica Daytona 550 National Cha
mpionship race which is this coming Saturday evening, January 23 in Daytona Beach, Florida. There are 8 extremely talented greyhounds going for the title and included in this star studded field are two of Southland's best, Chasmo's Dutch and Flying Fired Up. Post positions were drawn last Friday evening and they are listed below. Please note that there has been a change to the original field as Seldom Told takes the spot of Boc's Hank Jr. who was a late scratch. Last year's winner was HUSKER MAGIC and she is back to defend her title. This is an outstanding field with superstar runners going paw to paw in their quest for the win so best of luck to all greyhounds entered and all their connections as well. A special thanks to United Greyhound Racing for their vision and tireless efforts in bringing this together as well as BetAmerica and all others who have made this event possible. Thanks for reading and good luck to everyone.
