Welcome to another Thursday twilight card of exciting greyhound racing at Southland as there are 18 entertaining races on tap for our viewing and wagering pleasure. As most of you who follow the Southland preview blog may know, from time to time I like to go outside the box and give different viewpoints of greyhound racing then just making picks. Over the next couple of weeks I am going to concentrate on greyhounds that have drawn the same box at least 3 times in a row and see how they do and if that gives them any extra edge. This will include schooling races so if a greyhound has the same post position in a schooling contest and then draws that same box in an official contest it will count for this study. Keep in mind that on some programs there may not be any picks or selections to be made but on others, there might be several that meet that definition. As always, I will give a recap of the results when the study is finish. Good luck to everyone and thanks for reading.

Thursday twilight's selections - greyhounds that have drawn the same box at least 3 times in a row. There are 3 greyhounds on this program who are in the same box for the 3rd straight time.

Race 5 - 583 yards - Grade D - SJ'S HURRICANE - 1 box - previous two races where she had the one box, she finished 3rd in a schooling race and then followed that up with an 8th place effort last time out. She is an inside runner so lets see if the rail post position can get it done this time.

Race 9 - 583 yards - Grade A - VANZANT - 3 box - last two races from the 3 box he has a 2nd place finish as well as a 4th place effort. He's got a strong late move and usually kicks it in gear after he gets around the first turn.

Race17- 660 yards - Grade A - ATWATER - 2 box - This should be interesting as he has drawn the 2 box for the third straight time and in the two previous starts from this box, he's won them both. Can he make it 3 straight wins from the same box? Maybe, keep in mind his past two wins were in Grade C and Grade B and now, if he's going to keep the streak going, it will come in Grade A against some very good competition.

Good luck to all.
