Eight Finalists Contend In the Finals of the $20K Bob Balfe Puppy Stakes Championship on Saturday at PBKC

My money is on #1 Ol Stewball (4-1) in the 12th race at Palm Beach Kennel Club on Saturday night, but after that, I have a real problem handicapping this race. I can't remember when I've seen a better matched pack of pups in a race in a stakes.

One thing I'm worried about is that so many dogs will be heading inside, which might leave the field wide open for a midtrack runner to steal this race. One thing is for certain. When the race is finished, there will be one winner and champion to take the prize in this exciting stakes for young runners.


Bluffs Run $60K 3/8ths Mile Derby Second Round on Saturday April 20th

The first round was run on a very wet track and there were some amazing wins by double digit lengths. If the predicted showers hold off on Saturday, things may be very different on a dry track this time. Some of the winners that will be back for this round are Vision Revision, Iwa Killer, What You Need, Killer Buck, Iwa Sly, KL's Nessa, Killer Dare and Takenitalltheway.

On April 24th, 48 of the runners will return for the quarter-finals.
