    Posted by Admin on Saturday, July 15 @ 17:23:49 EDT (27 reads)

    The annual meeting was held on Saturday July 15th. The results of the board election of the members that term was up were Allen Hill was re elected to a three year term. Two new people were elected to three year terms, on the board, Tim Ertl and Jason Hess. I want to thank Bev Yates who was also the treasurer and Gloria Sanders, the executive secretary, for all the years they have served on the board and the job they have done over those years. Both have done a great job over the many years on the board. Gloria also was the person that made sure the Iowa Greyhound news letter was printed and mailed.

    Greyhound Racing 2017 IGP's King & Queen championship race
    Posted by Admin on Wednesday, July 05 @ 09:00:56 EDT (39 reads)

    Story by Steve Sigafoose

              DUBUQUE, Iowa – Rf River was the whole show as she ran away to a seven-length triumph before a packed house at Iowa Greyhound Park in the final of the $30,000 King & Queen Stakes on Tuesday, July 4.

             “Rf River was pretty remarkable,” said Superior Kennel trainer Jerry Cole. “She hit it pretty fast.”

           Rf River, a 69 pounder, born Dec. 28, 2014 out of KC And All – Af Nala, had plenty of support among the patrons as she went to the boxes as the second favorite. Winning in each of the qualifying rounds to advance as the points leader among the Queens probably had a lot to do with that.

          But the sweep of the qualifiers isn’t a given.

         “I was told,” said Cole, “that it has been quite a while since a greyhound had won in the three rounds and then won the final.”

           The decision to put Rf River up for the Stakes was an easy one.

          “She is in good shape,” said co-owner Francis Recinos. “We like the way she has been running.”

          Rf River popped the four box and won the rush to the first turn as the championship race open. Getting around the first turn, River made the race a one-greyhound affair as she built a four-length lead.

         “We had two greyhounds (in the final),” explained Recinos. “We were keeping our eyes on Rf Furious as she was in some traffic. River had the lead and she stayed ahead but we were worried about the one (Konomi) greyhound.”

         But Konomi or any other greyhound never mounted a challenge. Rf River cruised home, expanding her lead to seven lengths in a day’s best time of 30.98 seconds for the 5-16 mile course.

           With the win, Rf River moves to 10-5-1-1 on the year at IGP.

           Second early then shuffled back to fourth, Konomi (Stidham), 5-3-1-0, rallied to retake second. Breaking from the one box, Konomi had left the box as the patrons’ favorite after finishing second on the Kings points list.

          Rf Furious, a littermate of River, lost her battle with Konomi for second and had to settle for third, eight lengths back. She is 9-4-1-2.

          Boc’s Queen Gina (Boeckenstedt), 8-3-2-0, nipped Slatex Julie (Wayne R. Ward), 10-0-3-3, for fourth by .01 of a second.

          The Kings’ leading points earner, Jd Admiral (Stidham), 10-5-1-1, finished sixth, just. 04 of a second ahead of kennelmate Jd Dignity, 9-4-2-1.

        Kelo (Wayne R. Ward), 9-2-2-0, broke fourth, dropped back to last, rallied briefly then settled back to last, 11 lengths back.

               In handing out the checks, Rf River earned $12,000; Konomi $6,000; Rf Furious $3,000; Boc’s Queen Gina $2,400; Slatex Julie $2,100; Jd Admiral $1,800; Jd Dignity $1,500 and Kelo $1,200.

           As for the patrons, Rf River paid $8.80, $4.20 and $2.80; Konomi paid $3.20 and $2.40; Rf Furious paid $3.80. The 1-4 quiniela paid $13.20; the 4-1-8 tri-box paid $123.70; the 4-1-8-3 .10 superfecta paid $46.13 and the 3-2-4 $1 pick 3 paid $78.10.

           With Rf River’s win, the Queens hold a 17-15 lead in the Kings & Queens Stakes series.

    Greyhound Racing $145,000 Iowa Breeders Cup Stakes Final at the Iowa Greyhound Park by Steve Siga
    Posted by Admin on Monday, October 24 @ 21:03:17 EDT (470 reads)

    DUBUQUE, Iowa - Timing is everything.

    Rf River made an early lead stand up on the way to a length’s triumph in the $145,000 Iowa Breeders Cup Stakes at the Iowa Greyhound Park on Saturday, Oct. 22.

    “He is peaking at the right time,” said co-owner (along with Joni Recinos) Alan Hill. “He’s peaked in his last couple of races.”

    Hill was pointing to River’s wins in the last two qualifying rounds of the IBC where she took early leads and won comfortably by three and four lengths.

    Looking back, putting Rf River, a 68-pounder, born Dec. 28, 2014 out of Kc And All – Af Nala, in the IBC was a no brainer.

    “She is one of the better pups in our kennel,” said Hill. ‘We felt she had a chance to make the final. But when she did make the final and we saw the rest of the field, we knew it would be tough.

    ” It helped when Rf River drew the one box “which is a good box for her.”

    Winning a stakes championship “is a combination of having a greyhound” said Hill, “good enough to win, getting the right post and then having a lot of luck.”

    Rf River broke third from her one box, not quite as good a break as the kennel had hoped but her charge to the first turn was decisive. Working the rail, Rf River passed Bs Rebel (Wayne R. Ward), who had popped the three box, halfway down the front stretch.

    Getting into the first turn, River slipped into a length and a half lead. River kept her lead throughout the rest of the race. However it got close late in the homestretch as O Ya Pawtycrasher (Wayne R. Ward) came charging.

    “We knew eight (Pawtycrasher came out of the eight box) is a strong closer,” said Hill.

    But O Ya Pawtycrasher could only get within a length at the wire as Rf River, 27-11-4-3, claimed the title.

    The second-place finish was a double-disappointment for O Ya Pawtycrasher. A victory would have given Pawtycrasher, 32-14-8-5, who was sent to the boxes as the favorite, a share of the 2016 victory championship at IGP.

    Bs Rebel, 31-6-7-3, settled for third, also a length back.

    Three and a half lengths back in fourth was Al’s Flyer (Xtrem Hess), 29-6-6-7.

    In fifth, a length and a half behind Flyer was Jd Accomplice (Stidham), 18-10-4-2, who had been seen as a favorite in some quarters.

    Six lengths back in sixth was Sh Ozaki (Stidham), 31-7-3-7, who was just ahead of Dubuque Classic champion Joeslittlepebble (Copper Kettle), 29-7-6-4. A half-length back of the pair was Dnt Finbarclancy (T And T), 26-8-6-4.

    For the patrons, Rf River paid $7.00, $3.00 and $2.60; Oya Partycrasher paid $2.80 and $2.40; Bs Rebel paid $4.20. The 1-8 quiniela paid $7.60; the 1-8-3 tri-box paid $46.30; the 1-8-3-7 .10 superfecta paid $33.85; the 6-2-1 $1 pick 3 paid $224.20.

    Greyhound Racing fourth and final round of qualifying for the $145,000 Iowa Breeders Cup
    Posted by Admin on Tuesday, October 18 @ 12:42:44 EDT (477 reads)

    DUBUQUE, Iowa – Form held in the fourth and final round of qualifying for the $145,000 Iowa Breeders Cup at the Iowa Greyhound Park on Sunday, October 16.

    Seven of the greyhounds in the top eight slots on the points list after the third round stayed there, with some minor shuffling, to advance to the championship race.

    But the eighth finalist, boy did he climb over a lot of rivals to make the big field.

    DNT Finbarclancy (T And T Kennel) broke fifth and kept coming to rally in the homestretch to win by a length and ¾ in the opening of the three fourth-round races. The win vaulted the 70-pounder, born June 29, 2014 out of Djays Octane – Ah’s Salma from a tied for 16th in the points to sixth for his berth in the final. Finbarclancy will take a 25-8-6-4 record into the title run.

    Three greyhounds finished the third round tied for the lead in points. They finished the fourth round first and in a tie for third in points.

    Jd Accomplice (Stidham), 17-10-4-2, led early and held on for a half-length lead in the last of the fourth-round races. Accomplice finished as the top points earners with 72, based on three wins and a second.

    Jd Accomplice could easily be favored by the patrons at post time for the IBC.

    Tied for third with 54 points is Al’s Flyer and Bs Rebel. Flyer (Xtrem Hess), 28-6-6-7, had a miserable fourth round, finishing sixth. Rebel (Ward), 30-6-7-2, also struggled home with a sixth.

    Leaping into second in points with 60 is Rf River (Superior), 26-10-4-3. River had been tied for seventh after three rounds but put on a nice fourth-round effort. She went box-to-wire from the one and won pulling away by four lengths. Rf River may draw interest in the final as she won in the last two rounds.

    Oya Pawtycrasher moved up a bit from a tie for seventh to fifth with 52 points, passing Joeslittlepebble, who dropped from fifth to seventh with 50 points. Pawtycrasher (Ward), 31-14-7-5, put up a second in the fourth round. Pebble (Copple Kettle), 28-7-6-4, finished fourth in her fourth round race.

    Completing the title field is Sh Ozaki (Stidham) but only after a big scare. Trouble in the fourth round left Ozaki chasing everyone and he finished last, missing seventh by .01 of a second. The zero points for the last left Ozaki with 48 and tied with O Ya Chatter Box for the last spot in the title race. Going to the first tie-breaker, most wins in the qualifiers, Ozaki got the nod with two wins to Chatter Box’s one.

    O Ya Chatter Box (Ward) 18-1-4-8, gets the “not real happy with it” honor of heading up the Iowa Bred Consolation, a run-off for the greyhounds who finished ninth through 16th in the points. It is not the big prize but it is a stakes and some stakes money.

    Jason Baconmaker (Copper Kettle), 22-7-3-1, was sixth after the third round but a fifth in the fourth round dropped him all the way down to 18th.

    Two greyhounds made big jumps to get into the Consolation.

    L’s Tyme (Boeckenstedt), 22-5-4-5, got a second in the fourth round and jumped from a tied for 21st to a tie for 12th. Jd Dignity (Stidham), 29-9-6-8, finished third in the fourth round and moved from 20th to 14th.

    Kiss My Dust (Black), 28-7-9-4, finished 11th with 40 points. Jw’s Go With It (Copper Kettle), 29-9-4-3, tied for 12th with 38.

    There was a logjam for the final two spots in the Consolation. Using the tie-breakers – most wins, then most second, most thirds, etc., O Ya Kapow (Ward), 26-5-7-6, and Rf Zula (Superior), 18-4-6-1, survived after five greyhounds had earned 34 points.

    The $145,000 Iowa Breeders Cup and the Iowa Bred Consolation will be held on Saturday, October 22, the last day of the 2016 season at the Iowa Greyhound Park.
