Friday, March 10, 2017

Wheeling Island will have live greyhound racing Friday evening, March 10 and no matinee performance today. The change is just this week, as the United Way Night at the Races is being held Friday evening. It is a wonderful fundraiser with various local businesses sponsoring races, a silent auction and other activities.

I was introduced to greyhound racing by a friend in the late 1970s at Wheeling Downs and fell in love with the sport and the athletes immediately. Throughout the years, I have developed a deep passion for racing. In the mid 1990s, I started writing a weekly greyhound column and shortly thereafter became a writer for The Greyhound Review.

I have enjoyed watching and writing about these wonderful competitors, including All-Americans DD's Nelson, Kiowa Sweet Trey, Gene's Champion, WW Apple Jax, Greys Royalcrown, Nimby TP Jan, Hi Noon Hero, Gable Sour Cream, KB's Ruckus and Cry Case.
