    Prep Races for the 2015 Southland Derby

    southland parkGood day and thanks for checking in on this blog entry. I will be changing things “up a bit” with this blog. Instead of looking in-depth at one race, I will be offering some quick thoughts and ideas on four races taking place this Wednesday at Southland Greyhound Park.

    All four races will be qualification races for the 2015 Southland Derby – they will take place over Southland’s 583-yard course.

    Race #3 – CBJ Butterfinger (#1) looks to be the obvious key greyhound in this contest. Butterfinger has good early speed and is very well posted. Will be keying the #1 with 2, 3, 7, 8 in quinielas and exactas. Volando Sarena (#8) is in very good form and loves to run second in her races.

    Race #6 – U Too Pure Silk (#8) is a classy veteran who was very unlucky in his last race. In his last race, this son of Kiowa Sweet Trey showed a good rush to the escape turn but was involved in a nasty crash that eliminated him from contention. Silk has a great post position in this race. Will be using the 1, 2, 5, 7 in quinielas in exactas.

    Flagler Saturday Matinee Card – Race 8, 06.12.15

    Good day and thanks for taking at look at my second blog entry. In this entry I will be taking an in depth look at the 8th race from the Flagler Saturday Matinee Card.

    greyhound blogThis race is a Grade A race and will take place over the 550-yard course. Here is a closer look at all of Saturday’s racers:

    #1 Mocha Miss – In her first race of the Flagler meet, this 62-pounder broke very sharp, established a two length lead, but faltered badly in the stretch to finish sixth. This black female will need to make the lead and have some trouble behind her to pull of the upset.

    #2 – MV’s Hershey – Comes into this race off a dismal first start at Flagler. In that race, Hershey got outrushed to the turn and was never a factor. Should be a big price today.

    #3 – LN Durango – This son of Flying Coal City ran a sneaky good race last time. This 71-pounder was pinched back at the start and had traffic problems in the front stretch. Was doing a little running late in the race. Would definitely use in the third and fourth positions in superfectas.

    Southland Saturday Matinee Card – Race 10, 06.04.15

    greyhound blog

    Good day and welcome to the initial entry of my greyhound racing blog. My name is Jason Gill and I will be taking an in-depth look at one or two greyhound races each week. This initial entry will be looking at the 10th race on the Southland Saturday Matinee card.

    This race is a Grade AA race and will take place over Southland’s 583-yard course. A closer look at all of today’s racers:

    #1 Volando Sarena – This greyhound comes into this race in fine form. In each of her last two races, this black female has shown a good rush to the escape turn to clear second and eventually finish second in both of her contests. The inside post will certainly not hurt Sarena.

    #2 Se’s Ella F – Ella is a box breaking specialist who would need a lot of things to go her way in order to be competitive. After breaking sharp in her last race, this red female was outrushed, got into some trouble on the turn, and finished last. Will be a big price.

    #3 WW Instanreplay – This invader from Wheeling Downs has been feast or famine in her two starts at Southland. After taking advantage of a great spot in her debut (Replay is an inside runner who had tons of racing room) and romping to a sixth-length win on May 25, this 61-pounder broke slow, slowed in the first turn, and was never a factor. Will need to find the rail and clear on or near the lead to be a factor in this race.
