Highlighting the program for Thursday will be the running of Round 2 of the 2016 SOUTHLAND DERBY. Of the 18 races on tap, 11 of them will be stakes races and fans should find the paw to paw battles between some of the best greyhounds running anywhere in the country to be both very exciting and entertaining to watch. Round 1 was held on Saturday, June 11 with 88 greyhound entries vying for the SOUTHLAND DERBY title this season. There were quite a few upsets with the favorites only winning a few races so the competition looks to be a wide open event to determine the champion. This is the next to last stakes championship for the 2016 season at Southland with only the FESTIVAL OF STAKES championship left on the racing schedule at this track. I have listed my 8 selections to make the finals along with my pick to win it all as well as a longshot pick and you can see them below. Best of luck to all the greyhounds that are entered in this stakes contest as well as to their kennels, trainers and owners and all other connections. Good luck and thanks for reading.
