Race Preview

This is a race where the win might hinge on which greyhound gets the break. And there are 5 dogs that need the break in this race.

Razorbingo, WW's Musician, Dutch Rudy, Kiowa Mat Marty and Pat C Stonewall all really need the lead to run their best race.

GS Tex is the biggest closer in the race, although Topline Pursuit can close or win on the lead if he has a favorable post position. WW Ignite Fire, the youngest runner, is probably the most versatile greyhound in this race. I've been very impressed with this youngster and whether or not she wins this one, I think she could be a future stakes winner, once she adds some strategy to her speed.

I think that one of the closers would be a good bet, because there's so much speed in this race. I'm going with WW's Ignite Fire for the win, and putting her over and under Razorbingo, WW's Musician and Kiowa Mat Marty.

This should be a very contentious final to a very contentious and action-packed series. Good racing luck and safe trips to all the runners. Remember that you can play Orange Park and many other greyhound tracks and get free programs on Bet America.
