SEMIFINAL ACTION FOR PALM BEACH KENNEL CLUB’S $20,000 DICK ANDREWS FUTURITY, MONDAY AFTERNOON, DECEMBER 18!

JT’S BLINDNSPEED AND GRAND AZUL REMAIN UNDEFEATED!

West Palm Beach, Fl. - The fourth and final round of qualifying for Palm Beach Kennel Club’s $20,000 Dick Andrews Futurity takes place Monday afternoon, December 18.

Heading into the sweet sixteen, two Greyhounds have earned undefeated qualifying records. JT’s Blindnspeed and Grand Azul will each attempt to enter the $20,000 Dick Andrews Futurity finale with unblemished records.

In Race 12, #8 JT’s Blindnspeed is absolutely the one to beat. Talk about a pup coming up out of the blue in qualifying. When he defeated Eyesappealing in the first round, racing fans knew they were on to something big. Blindnspeed’s round three victory was a classic, as he ran down the formerly undefeated JSK Lubbock. Other notables to keep an eye on are the well-positioned #1 Eyesappealing, #4 TWPA Hope and #5 Top Notch, who is steadily improving with each start.

In Race 14, it will be #4 Grand Azul going for the clean sweep. This could be a tough feat for Azul to pull off. Major obstacles include the fleet-footed #3 JSK Lubbock along with the well-posted #1 Rail Defender and #8 SE’s Magic Photo.
