There will be no live greyhound racing at Wheeling Island on Sunday, Dec. 24 (Christmas Eve) and Monday, Dec. 25 (Christmas Day). On Tuesday, Dec. 26, Wheeling Island will feature a special “After Christmas” matinee performance with a post time of 1 p.m.

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.
