*2014 Puppy Stakes Finalists*

By Palm Beach Jason

Happy Labor Day everybody! One of the most exciting events of the season at Palm Beach is today with the Final of the $20,000 Gallagher/Kinnaird Puppy Stakes. 8 of the best young all-stars at the track will compete to see who the top rookie is here. Will be an amazing race and a great start to the month of September.


KBs_Gold_Rider--#8 KB’s Gold Rider ~ Rader Racing

Will be the most bet on greyhound in this race and he should be. The only undefeated racer throughout this tournament, he has sizzled out of this setup in both starts throughout the Puppy Stakes.

Albatross#7 Albatross ~ Rader Racing

Was the most popular pick to win it all at the start of this by the public, but finishing third in his last two starts has people doubting whether the “Big Bird” can get this done. Ran consecutive 29.59 secs wins to start the tournament and probably is the most talented racer of this field. Wouldn't shock me if Albatross put it all together this afternoon.

Next Best

#6 Atascocita Dinah ~Suncoast Racing

The veteran of 64 races just upset Albatross in her last start and has finished in the Quinela in all 4 starts in this Stakes series.


#5 CRT Team Thunder ~ Champions Racing Team

Is a 50% winner to start her career and has a dynamic close. Any trouble in the turn could have Team Thunder lighting up the Tote Board.

I picked Gold Rider to win this from the beginning and the 8 box is too sweet to turn away from today. Rader Racing gets their second consecutive Puppy Stakes Title as Gold Rider gets the victory.
