Wheeling Island has canceled the Lucky North 5 (Friday evening) card today, Jan. 12. Rain is expected to turn to freezing rain later, and eventually to several inches of snow.

The Lucky North 5 (Friday evening) will be moved to Sunday, Jan. 14, as an evening card to go along with the regular Sunday matinee program.

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.
