  SEMIFINALS FOR PALM BEACH KENNEL CLUB’S $50,000 HE’S MY MAN CLASSIC SUNDAY AFTERNOON, JANUARY 13!

CAN RADER RACING KENNEL’S DUXBURY REMAIN UNDEFEATED?

FIND OUT WHO WILL ADVANCE TO THE FINAL EIGHT!

West Palm Beach, Fl. - Semifinal action for Palm Beach Kennel Club’s $50,000 He’s My Man Classic takes place Sunday afternoon, January 13.

Two semifinal races will be contested, with the top eight-point scorers earning their way into the championship final slated for Saturday afternoon, January 19.

Following 18 qualifying races, the sweet sixteen in point earnings will go muzzle-to-muzzle to determine which eight of these superstars will be going for the 2019 championship and the $25,000 first-place prize.

After three rounds of qualifying its Rader Racing Kennel’s Duxbury leads the semifinalists with a perfect 45 points, going undefeated through the first three qualifying rounds.

Semifinal Race 12 is chockful of some of best early-speed Greyhounds at Palm Beach Kennel Club. Once again, it will come down to post position. Who will have the early room to use their box-breaking lightning speed. At first blush, the semifinalists who fit this bill are #1 Open Throttle, #7 Amanda Bynes and #8 Flat Chat Cuppa.

The fan-favorite in Sunday afternoon’s final semifinal event in Race 15 will be #8 Duxbury. Not only has this 22-month old pup won her three qualifying rounds, but last month was crowned the 2018 $20,000 Dick Andrews Futurity champion. Duxbury also set a new Futurity stake record with a 545-yard Royal Palm Course clocking of 29.35 seconds. Her main competition will come from the tremendous rusher, #2 Magnus Marvel and the blazing early speedster, #4 MW’s T Rex. This lovely big 70-pound girl will be going for her sixth-consecutive victory.
