Wheeling Island’s featured stakes race of the year – the $100,000 Mountaineer Classic – kicks off Sunday afternoon, Oct. 3, with a field of 88 sprinters entered.

Although last year’s winner, WW’s Chewbacca (Wayne Ward Kennel), and runner up Axtrem Bomb (Xtrem Hess Racing Kennel), are not entered in this year’s stakes event, three of the 2019 finalists are back in the field – BGR Bonecrusher (Brad Boeckenstedt Kennel), third; L’s Luv It (Blanchard Kennel), fourth; and AMF Bystander (A Ray Kennel), seventh.

The second round is set for Friday afternoon, Oct. 9. The tentative plan is to cut the field to 48 greyhounds after the second qualifying round.

The third preliminary round is scheduled for Wednesday matinee, Oct. 14. The field will tentatively be cut to 24 sprinters, but could be higher, for the semifinal round on Sunday afternoon, Oct. 18.

The championship final will be held during the matinee card on Saturday, Oct. 24.

The winning greyhound will receive approximately 40 percent of the total stakes purse – a check of roughly $42,000. Runner up is worth $18,000 with the third-place finisher receiving $13,000 and fourth place getting $10,000.

Fifth and sixth place will receive $5,500 each while seventh and eighth will get $3,000 apiece.
