Palm Beach Wednesday Matinee Preview 9-9-2015
*Kb's Like A Fox*
One of the best Wednesday Cards you will ever see happens today at the Palm Beach Kennel Club! Legendary super sprinter Kb’s Like A Fox goes for career win #70 in the 4th Race in his quest to become the all time wins leader. The finale showdown between two of the top greyhounds in the country JS ToHotToHandle & Party of One will certainly draw attention from around the globe.
Here are the top races I will be following for this fantastic card today at “The Beach.”
Race 4 Grade TA 301 Yards
“The Fox” couldn’t have drawn it up any better.
#1 Kb’s Like A Fox from Rader Racing gets the prime 1 hole for this historic race, as he tries to become only the second greyhound ever at Palm Beach to get 70 career victories. All season long we will be watching to see if he can get to the record 85 set by Pat C Rendezvous in 1995. This race looks like an absolute lock.
#8 Slatex Bakken from the Janie Carroll Kennel could be a solid long shot pick for Place or Show, but would pay huge if an upset for win happened.
Race 10 Grade D 545 Yards
I usually wouldn’t be writing about a “D” Race unless I really saw a play that was worth looking at. #2 Scenic Prairie from the Ryan Racing Team is dropping wayyyyy down from the top class and is much too talented to be sticking around with this field. Hasn’t been down in this class since last April and I don’t anticipate it taking long to get out of it.
Possible long shots could come from #7 SWG Bracken from the Agganis Kennel who is grade dropping as well, or #1 PivotPoint Noah who loves to rush on the rail.
Scenic Prairie all the way for me.
Race 15 Grade A 545 Yards
This is one of the bigger superstar match-ups you will see. One that really is worthy of a Stakes Final Race.
Dynamite sprinters #4 Party of One and #6 JS ToHotToHandle square off for the very first time this afternoon and both couldn’t be hotter at
the track then they are right now.
“Sizzle” has rattled off 7 wins in her last 8 races, scoring our #1 Ranking last month in our Top 10 Poll.
“The Party” has shown a lethal rush and dynamite close this season on his way to 7 wins. Both greyhounds could grab a share of the season wins lead with Stakes Champion PJ St Pierre if they can pull off a win today.
These two should go right down to the wire, but Sizzle is looking like she wants to have one special season for her Team. Possible National Champion contender? Lets see how she does today first. ToHotToHandle on top.
