Bgr Dirty Shirly’s perfect performance leads the field after two rounds of the $30,000 Dubuque Course Classic at the Iowa Greyhound Park.

Bgr Dirty Shirly (Boeckenstedt Kennel), a 60-pounder born Dec. 5, 2015 out of Boc’s Blast Off – Superior Peace, finished up the second round by holding on for a half-length win. That coupled with a four-length win in the first round gave Shirly the maximum of 40 points, eight more than any rival.

Ds Raisinette (Xtrem Hess) and Fightin Flo (Copper Kettle) are tied for second with 32 points. Flo moved up the points list by pulling away for a four-length win. Her time of 39.04 seconds for the 2,040 foot course was the faster of the four second-round races.

Fourth, with 28 points, is Pg Dickinson (Xtreme Hess), one of the first-round winners.

The field was trimmed to the top 16 point earners for the third round and after the third round the field will be trimmed to the championship eight.

After two rounds it is quite crowded around the No. 8 spot on the list. Three greyhounds, Boc’s Queen Gina (Boeckenstedt), O Ya Curly Sue (Superior) and Se’s Flyin Ryan (T and T), are tied at eighth with 20 points. Above that trio, Jd Allure (Stidham) has 22 points and Gracie Lynn (Copper Kettle) has 21.

Street Rage (Clayton Black) is behind the log-jam with 17 points and there may be just too many greyhounds for Street Rage to vault over.

Still with a win worth 20 points that might do the trick in the third round.

The pair of third round race is schedule for Friday, August 25. The championship race for the $30,000 Dubuque Course Classic will run on Friday, Sept. 1.
