    Greyhound Racing Iowa Breeders Cup second round story by Steve Sigafoose

    DUBUQUE, Iowa There is a crowd at the top of the points list after the second of the four qualifying rounds for the $145,000 Iowa Breeders Cup Stakes at the Iowa Greyhound Park.

    Four greyhounds have won in each of the first two rounds to earn the maximum of 40 points. The dust settled on the second round on Friday, October 7.

    Als Flyer (Xtrem Hess Racing) repeated his first round come-from-behind form, this time coming from third in the homestretch to win by a nose. His first-round win was by a half-length but they are all worth 20 points under the IGPs points system. Als Flyer, a 74-pounder born Oct. 20, 2013 out of Flying Westover Gable Eternity, is 26-6- 5-7 this season at IGP.

    Jd Accomplice (Stidham) held on to win by a neck to go with his five and a half length romp in the first round. Accomplice is a 63-pounder born Dec. 30, 2014 out of Jd Titanium Allisonracinteam. She was third in the Future Star Stakes in September and is 15-9-3-2.

    Joeslittlepebble (Copper Kettle) was impressive. The 65-pounder, born Dec. 2, 2014 out of Ps Gibbs Joes Abby won pulling away by four lengths. Thats a copy-cat effort from her first round when she won pulling away by four and a half length. She spiced the second-round win by posting a time of 31.04 seconds for the 5-16 mile course, the fastest of any of the 13 second-round races. Joeslittlepebble, 26-7-6-4, already has a stakes title under her blanket as she won the Dubuque Course Classic in early September.

    Sh Ozaki (Stidham), 28-7-3-6, won his second round race going away by five lengths, the largest margin of victory posted in the second round. That was a different formula from the first round where Ozaki came from seventh to finally get the lead in the homestretch and win by three-quarters of a length. Sh Ozaki is an 80-pounder, born June 11, 2014 out of all-time national money earner Sh Avatar Money Maid.

    Fifth on the points list with 32 points is Bs Rebel (Wayne R. Ward), 38-5-7-2. She won her second round race going away by three lengths to go with a second place finish in the first round.

    The next three greyhounds are tied with 28 points. The trio earned the points the same way, finishing third in the opening round then winning second round races.

    Oya Pawtycrasher (Wayne R. Ward), 29-14-5-5, won in the second round pulling away by four and a half lengths. A veteran, Pawtycrasher was third in the King & Queen Stakes final on July 4.

    L Cat Woman (Wayne R. Ward), 25-4-3-5, rallied in the homestretch to win by a length to get into the thick of the chase.

    Dnt Finbarclancy (T And T), 23-7-6-4, rallied from fourth in the homestretch to win by a head. Another veteran, Finbarclancy was a finalist in the Dubuque Course Classic championship race.

    After the second round, the field was trimmed to 48 greyhounds for the third round, which will be held on Wednesday, October 12. A greyhound needed to have earned 12 points to advance. But 12 might be enough; doing the math a pair of wins in the final rounds would give a greyhound 52 points, maybe enough to be a candidate for a berth in the championship race on Saturday, October 22
