    Only missing the pay sheet 6 times, you must play him in your bet.

    Should be a huge favorite. Post position could make it tough.

    BARTS DRAGON (B’s Royal Tim - Barts Dacia) owned by Rick Bartley, racing for the Bartley Corporation and trained by Don Conatser. Won two races during the qualifying rounds, one from the inside and one from the outside. Showing he can win from any post position.

    Must avoid trouble, otherwise he backs out.

    CTW COUNTN MONEY (Ctw Legendary - Midnight Smoke) owned by Green Smith, racing for the Keeper Red Rock Kennel and trained by Tracy McMillin. This pup has been the talk at Bluffs Run since May of this year. Winning his first eight races. He was a GREAT buy for Green Smith at the Spring Auction in Abilene Kansas this year. Ctw Countn Money has found a way to win. His last race proved to be double trouble, getting pinched at the start and bumped twice in the first turn. How will he come back after losing for the very first time? How will he handle the first turn after having trouble that he has never seen before? Questions like these will be on the mind of gamblers, when they handicap this race.

    Will be a heavy favorite. Clean first turn and he wins.

    YO MY MEDIATOR (My John Q - My Twilite Star) owned by Mark Arno, Burton Arno, Laveda Woodall and Carolyn Hastings, racing for the Woodall Kennels and trained by Mark Arno. Bluffs Run current track win leader for the year, with 18 wins. He has placed himself in the record books at Bluffs Run for winning his first 5 races, M-A. However he looks to put another mark into the record book by winning a stakes race. Yo My Mediator has only been eligible for two stakes races this year at Bluffs Run, $60,000 Horseshoe Challenge and this $60,000 Bluffs Run Challenge. During the Horseshoe Challenge the Semi-Finals and Finals he found nothing but trouble. Before his sabbatical in May, Yo My Mediator raced in the money 38 out of 39 starts, 28 were wins.

    He has clocked the fastest time, but is he 100%?
