What a superstar lineup we have lined up for the card today!  The crowds will be coming out today to see one of the best in the business JS SpeedyPebbles in the finale 15th.  Last season’s Track Champion KB’s Like A Fox goes for career win #41 in today’s 3rd race as well.  Should be fantastic to watch from start to finish this afternoon.

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

Race 3 Grade TA 301 Yards

#1 KB’s Like A Fox from Rader Racing will be the heavy favorite in this one and he should be.  Doesn’t have main rival Bae Sang to contend with today and has continually pounded lesser competition for over a year.  37 wins last season for Fox was by far the most of any greyhound at Palm.  Only thing possibly going against Fox today is that he has lost 2 straight out of this box, but I believe this is an exception, not the rule.

The upset if there is one could come from #8 Liberty Trail from The Champions Racing Team.  Defeated Fox on 7/19 out of this same 8 hole and can occasionally pop the lid with some of the best super sprinters here.

Fox is setup too nicely and gets his second straight W.

Picks 1-8-3-5

Race 4 Grade A 545 Yards

One of the other top lady racers here is #8 Kiowa Carmen from The Royal Racing Team.  Has 3 wins already this season but is a dead rail runner.  In fact, she has lost 5 straight out of the 8 box.  That’s when you look for racers that are setup better.

#2 Ninis Chipotle from owner Laura Brady is coming off an impressive 29.58 secs blazer last time out and is right near the inside where he likes it.  Has really stepped his game up this season, hitting the Quinela in four of five starts.

Wildcard is #3 NB’s Princess who can rush with any of the racers in this lineup and could steal this if she gets well out in front.

“Chip” continues to shine this season and gets his second straight win in this one.

Race 15 Grade A 545 Yards

The race of the day without a doubt.

All eyes will be on the “The Queen of Palm Beach” #1 JS SpeedyPebbles from owner Shannon Henry.  Looks to be the only greyhound still undefeated on the season going for her fifth straight W today.  Is a 75% winner out of this prime 1 box all time. Had her best time from this box, with a 29.45 secs scorcher on 7/3.

Pebbles rival here may start to be #6 CRT Leyla.  Has a dynamic rush and also can close with the best of them.  I would love to see these two top ladies on the backstretch going toe to toe for supremacy.

Upset pick would have to come from #2 Atascocita Dinah, who has been in the Quinela in all 5 starts this season.

Can’t go against the track’s best today. SpeedyPebbles continues her reign as the top racer here.

Picks 1-2-6-8
