West Palm Beach, Fl. - Semifinal action for Palm Beach Kennel Club’s $50,000 He’s My Man Classic takes place Sunday afternoon, January 19.

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 2020 championship and the $25,000 first-place prize.

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

Race 12 is a wide-open event. You have the best of the early speedsters matching up with the best of late finishers. A handicapper’s nightmare! Yet most likely, at least three or four of these semifinalists will advance to the championship final.

In Race 14, there is no doubt that #6 Sarahdipedy will be the post-time favorite. She has won all three of her qualifying races and has posted the fastest race times in each of those rounds. Sarahdipedy will be the youngest of all the $50,000 He’s My Man Classic finalists and have the least number of races around the 545-Yard Royal Palm Course. Her main impediment to her road of perfection may come from the two Koppe, Staats & Collins semifinalists, #1 Pat C Dewdrop and #8 Pat C Inferno.

The lineups for Sunday afternoon’s semifinals:
