What an exciting month of racing just wrapped up here at Palm Beach! Along with the superstars continuing to shine and the youngsters showing their stuff in the Puppy Stakes Tournament, this place continues to be one of the top tracks in the country.

Here are the Top 10 greyhounds for August currently racing at “The Beach.”

1 . Bae Sang ~ Super Sprinter ~ Rader Racing

-Up 2 spots from last month

-16.51 secs best time

6 race winning streak going in August. 70% winner this season and owns five of the top six times of any super sprinter. Like A Fox better come back soon or this racer may run away with the season wins title.
JS Speedy Pebbles

2 . JS SpeedyPebbles ~ Sprinter ~ Koppe, Staats & Collins Kennel

-Down 1 spot from last month

-29.45 secs best time “The Queen of Palm Beach” had an average month of racing which knocked her out of the top spot. The 60% career winner can win from any box and when she is on, is absolutely lethal. She is by far the most popular racer to follow for fans at Palm Beach.

3 . KB’s Gold Rider ~ Sprinter ~ Rader Racing

-Puppy Stakes runner-up.

-First time in the Top 10!

-Current season wins leader with 8

The rookie sensation reeled off 4 straight W’s in the Puppy Stakes Tourney before catching a bad break in the Final. This is a bonafide superstar, who could challenge for some major stakes titles this winter.

4 . KB’s Like A Fox ~ Super Sprinter ~ Rader Racing

-16.55 secs best time

The season wins champ from last season is on a current rest. Has the best rivalry in the country going with Kennel mate Bae Sang.

5 . CRT Leyla ~ Sprinter ~ Champions Racing Team

-Down 1 spot from last month

-Fastest time of any greyhound in the 545 yard this season (29.34 secs)

One of the most consistent racers here. Hasn’t finished out of the money since mid-April. On a current break and should return in October/November.

6 . Superior Jamaica ~ Sprinter ~ B & B Racing

-First time this season in the Top 10

-29.75 secs best time, 4 wins this month.

One hot racer since returning to Palm from an extended summer break. Four wins in five starts against some of the best talent here.

7 . CRT Majestic ~ Sprinter ~ Champions Racing Team

-Down 1 spot from last month

-3 wins this month

Has been a top Grade A competitor since the new season started. 7 wins already and can show a blazing rush. Champions Racing Team is sporting some of the top talent at Palm Beach this year.

8 . Tewnup­­­ ~ Middle Distance Racer ~North Shore Kennel

-First time in the Top 10!

In the most wide open distance at “The Beach,” all this racer did was run a perfect August by winning 5 straight. Look out for this greyhound as the season goes on.

9 . Jim Brown ~ Sprinter ~ Brindle Kennel

-First time in the Top 10!

What a rookie campaign the running back namesake has had. 6 wins already this season and bolted the second fastest time of the season in August (29.38 secs.)

10 . Atascocita Dinah ~Sprinter ~ Suncoast Racing
