ROUND ONE QUALIFYING FOR PALM BEACH KENNEL CLUB’S $20,000 DICK ANDREWS FUTURITY, SATURDAY AFTERNOON, DECEMBER 7!

West Palm Beach, Fl. - Round-one qualifying action for Palm Beach Kennel Club’s $20,000 Dick Andrews Futurity gets underway Saturday afternoon, December 7.

Thirty-two of the track’s most outstanding up-and-coming young racing stars will go to post in four qualifying events.

The same 32 youngsters will return for rounds two and three on Wednesday afternoon, December 11 and Sunday afternoon, December 15, respectively.

Following the third round, the top 16-point earners will advance to the semifinals, Friday afternoon, December 20.

The finale of the $20,000 Dick Andrews Futurity will be contested Thursday afternoon, December 26.

This year’s $20,000 Dick Andrews Futurity is quite unique, as out of 32 entries, only three are currently racing in the top Grade A. This should make for some wild and exciting finishes and some possible huge payoffs.

The first of the Grade A trio will compete in Race 12. #6 Buyusumnewshoes (Superior Panama – Joy Giovanni, Rader Racing) is a strong first-turn rusher who may have to pass some of the lesser graded early speedsters.

Race 15 features our last two Grade A entries, #1 Ruff N Rowdy (Iruska All Star – Ruff Tuff Babe, James Douglas) and #8 Run Run Happy (Kinda Cruel Red – SG’s Phil Niekro, Rader Racing), both of whom are in good post positions. But keep a close eye on the strong-rushing #7 Sassy N Trashy (Lenson Sanchez* - PJ Not For Long, Janie Carroll).

Futurity qualifiers will also be held in races 10 and 14.

Post time for the first race Wednesday afternoon is 1:00 p.m.

The Futurity is named in honor of former PBKC kennel operator, humanitarian and 2004 inductee to the Greyhound Hall of Fame Dick Andrews.
