Palm Beach Matinee Preview 4-12-2015
*JS SpeedyPebbles*Superstar Sunday is in full effect today, with some of the best greyhounds Palm Beach has to offer getting starts in today’s Matinee. JS SpeedyPebbles and her legion of fans will be ready to watch her sprint in Race 12, along with the best middle distance greyhound at the track Ethel Is Here going for season win #22 in the finale. Should be great greyhound action all afternoon long.
Here are the top races I will be following for the Sunday Matinee at “The Beach.”
Race 12 Grade A 545 Yards
The most popular athlete at Palm Beach #1 JS SpeedyPebbles from owner Shannon Henry gets to fire from her favorite box this afternoon. A 64% winner all time from the pole position, "The Queen of Palm Beach" looks to be setup to go here. She possesses one of the most lethal breaks of any greyhound at the club and should put it on display today.
Watch out for Pebbles’ Kennel mate #8 Pat C Shyne. The Stakes tested greyhound love mid track and does have the ability to close out early speedsters around the bend. Fully expect her to hit the ticket.
Pebbles get career win #49 in this one.
*Pat C Short Cut*
Race 14 Grade A 545 Yards
Battle between two of the St. Pat’s Invite Finalists in this one.
Right now the fastest sprinter at Palm Beach has to be #3 Pat C Short Cut from the Koppe, Staats & Collins Team. Has won 3 of her last 4 starts, with sizzling times that includes the 29.12 secs victory on 3/19, which was the second fastest split by any sprinter this season.
#7 OshKosh Flicka from the Douglas Racing Team is looking for 3 straight W’s and is sitting in a great spot on the outside. Flicka must be on any exotic plays, as she is an 81% board hitter on the season.
Look out for #1 Kb’s Key To Win who has started to catch fire in the past few months and did win from this box last time in it on 3/7.
Hard to go against Pat C Short Cut here, who is making the case that she is the new top sprinter at Palm Beach.
Race 15 Grade TA 660 Yards
The record breaker herself #5 Ethel Is Here from the Janie Carroll Kennel is ready to fire this afternoon. Is coming off a close Place finish last time out, which is good news for the players today because Ethel hasn’t lost two straight since February. Rare combo of dynamite rush and close has helped her achieve 21 season victories with a chance at the wins Title at the conclusion of the racing season.
Ethel most likely will have to run down early speedster #1 Paid Vacation from the Ryan Racing Team. Just was able to hold on for the victory last time out and does get the best box to break from in this distance. Should get great odds with most of the money in this race going to Ethel Is Here.
Good long shot play could be #8 Kahuna, who has ran impressive from the outside boxes since her transfer from Southland Park.
Can’t go against Ethel, as she gets her 22nd victory on the season to conclude the Sunday Card.
Top Pick Race 15- #5 Ethel Is Here
Enjoy the racing today everybody!
