*JS Speedy Pebbles*

By Palm Beach Jason

The superstars of Palm Beach are coming out this afternoon! Bae Sang, JS SpeedyPebbles and Albatross all running on the same card? That’s why Palm Beach is a must watch each and every weekend.

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


         *Bae Sang*

Race 4 Grade TA 301 Yards

Pretty shocking to see one of the world’s best #5 Bae Sang from top Kennel Rader Racing lose two races in a row. The 7 time winner this season is waiting for his main rival and kennel buddy KB’s Like A Fox to return this week, which will restart the greatest super sprint rivalry in greyhound racing again. I just can’t imagine Sang losing 3 in a row in this one.

Veteran #7 Liberty Trail from top trainer Kenny Borges is one racer that has bested Sang this year. Loves the outside and has a stellar season best time of 16.65 secs. Look out also for #3 Oh Mamma from owner Cheyenne Criswell who has been in the money the last four starts.

Bae Sang losing three in a row is not even an option to me. He rolls back to the winner’s circle where he belongs.

Picks 5-7-3-2



Race 10 Grade A 545 Yards

The “Big Bird” will look to spread its wings again this afternoon.

#3 Albatross from Rader Racing is one of the top puppies at this track and just smoked a 29.45 secs W last time out. If this hound can figure out how to consistently put strong races together, he has a shot at bringing home more Stakes titles to the top Kennel here.

#4 Jim Brown from owner Dr. Michael Metyk is the biggest threat to Albatross. Has the second fastest 545 yard time this season (29.38 secs) and has 6 wins.  I am concerned that his times have risen the last 5 races, which only has me putting him for a board spot here.

Look out for the conservative greyhound #1 Glenn Beck who has won two straight out of the hot 1 box.

Albatross gets two in a row in this one.

Picks 3-4-7-5

Race 15 Grade A 545 Yards

The race of the day without a doubt.

The world will be watching as the most popular athlete at Palm Beach #1 JS SpeedyPebbles from the Koppe, Staats & Collins Team goes for her track leading 9th season win this afternoon.

Good competition today and it starts with #2 CRT Team Thunder. Just came off a schooling win which usually wouldn’t be all that impressive except that undefeated PFannys Timber T was in that race. Ran very strong in the Puppy Stakes tournament and could disrupt Pebbles today if she breaks well.

Wildcard is #7 AMF Trustee from B & B Racing who should be able to out rush her neighbor boxes on the outside and be near the front to start.

No way I pick against the “Queen of Palm Beach” in this one, especially in her favorite 1 box.

Picks 1-7-2-6

Top Pick Race 15- #1 JS SpeedyPebbles
