By Palm Beach Jason

Terrific Thursday racing action comes our way this afternoon at Palm Beach and many of the track’s stars will be out to shine for our viewing pleasure. The highlight of the card includes CRT Majestic looking to be the first greyhound to 10 wins this season here in Race 15.

Here are the top races I will be following for the Matinee at “The Beach.”

Race 9 Grade J 545 Yards

Only one reason I would be writing about a “J” race…hot puppy prospect.

#1 JS ToHotToHandle from all-star owner Shannon Henry will look for back to back wins this afternoon. Gets the hot 1 box to fire out of and has that patented rush that many of her Kennel mates seem to possess.

Look out for Rader Racing’s #8 Willie Mcginest who blitzed a 29.99 secs W last time in the outside box and has the fastest time this season of this bunch (29.92 secs).

TooHotToHandle is just that this afternoon and gets her second W of the season.

Picks 1-7-8-3

Race 10 Grade A 545 Yards

#5 Gez Jacked Up from Suncoast Racing has flown under the radar a bit this season.

With a win and a Majestic loss, he actually would be tied for the wins lead at Palm with 9. Loves mid-track and is coming off a sizzling 29.66 W last time out. Has also been in the money 85% of the time this season.

#4 Flat Richard is another Rader Racing puppy starting to make a splash in the top grade. At only a year and a half years old, he has a nice combo of solid rush and excellent closing ability. If he is near the front coming for home, look out.

Wildcard is #1 Pat C Blackout, who can have occasional brilliance, including a 29.66 secs W out of this same inside box on 9/18.

Jacked Up continues to impress as he gets the win today.

Picks 5-4-1-2

Race 15 Grade A 545 Yards

The race of the day without a doubt.

All eyes will be on the wins leader #2 CRT Majestic from The Champions Racing Team in the Matinee finale. Has consistently been one of the best racers here since the season, finishing in the money an astonishing 94% of the time! Has also won both races out of this inside 2 box this season.

#5 Turbo Fire Break from top Kennel Rader Racing may be the spoiler to Majestic’s winner’s circle pass. Can bolt out of the box with the best of them but has seemed off the last two races. She faces demotion to the JV class if she cannot put together a solid effort this afternoon. I still like her to hit the ticket but I’m shying away from an upset bid.

For you longshot players, #7 Dunnit All from the North Shore Kennel has sizzled a 29.48 secs W earlier in the season and previously raced at Southland. Guaranteed good price will be out there.

Majestic should be too much for this field. I’m going with her to get that season leading 10th win.

Picks 2-5-1-7

Top Pick Race 15 – #2 CRT Majestic

Look for my September Palm Beach Top 10 Rankings to come out this weekend!
