    Palm Beach Kennel Club is sponsoring “Free Adoptions” for the entire month of October – a savings of more than $200. The adoption groups offer applications online and will interview potential families. Once applicants are approved, the pets are placed and the groups offer continued support. October will also be a busy month for promoting Greyhound adoption with visits to pet stores, local events, green markets and lots of pets at the track.

    About Greyhound Adoption:

    Greyhounds that are retired need the love and companionship of an individual or family that can care for them, and they make great pets! They’re gentle, friendly, affectionate and easy to care for. Because of their wonderful temperament, they’re great with children. Greyhounds make excellent walking and jogging companions and easily settle into a life of retirement.

    Palm Beach Kennel Club works with Awesome Greyhound Adoptions / Hounds for Heroes, Elite Greyhounds, Forever Greyhounds, Greyhound Pets of America and Greyed A Greyhounds to find good homes for retired Greyhounds. The groups screen and inform potential adopters in order to find the right dog for the right person or family. They’re non-profit, volunteer-run groups that are very active in the community, participating in county-wide events, parades, visiting schools, hospitals, nursing homes and other care facilities.

    GIVE YOURSELF THE GIFT OF LOVE,

    ADOPT A RETIRED GREYHOUND!

    PALM BEACH KENNEL CLUB PRESENTS ROUND 3 QUALIFYING $20,000 GALLAGHER/KINNAIRD PUPPY STAKES SATURDAY AFTERNOON, AUGUST 23!

    Last updated 3 months ago

    West Palm Beach, Fl. - Qualifying for Palm Beach Kennel Club’s $20,000 Gallagher / Kinnaird Puppy Stakes continues with third-round action Saturday afternoon, August 23.                 

            After two rounds and 10 qualifying races, only three Greyhounds will have the opportunity to enter the sweet 16 with unblemished records.

            Probable post time favorites include:                    

            Race 8 will be a rare six-Greyhound qualifier. There is no doubt that fans will flock en-masse to easy round one winner, #6 Quirky Kingdom (Flying Westover - Crobat, Rader Racing).                 

            In Race 10, Rader Racing’s Kennel’s #4 KB’s Gold Rider (My Rooster - BI’s Sugar Momma) will be going for the “turkey”. Following two impressive qualifying victories, Gold Rider may face some competition from some of the other early speedsters in the event. But, going by class alone, he will be the favorite along with double-round runner up entry #6 Atascocita Dinah (Kiowa Sweet Trey - Atascocita Kiana, Suncoast Kennel).  

            Race 12 features the undefeated Rader Racing Kennel’s #6 Albatross (Yahoo Omar - Kiowa Jill Soon). “Big Bird’s key to win his third qualifier may lay at the paws of #7 KB’s Key To Win (Rhythmless - Joyce Myers, B & B Racing) who does possess some nice speed out of the starting box.                                                                

            Two qualifying winners will go muzzle-to-muzzle in Race 14, #1 Turbo Sharise (Bob’s Skeet - C Ya High Card, Rader Racing) will face off with #7 Atascocita Bush (Lonesome Cry - Atascocita Oprah, Suncoast). The wild card in this race is the always trying double-round qualifier runner up #5 CRT Team Thunder (Team Record* - Drum Thunder, Champions Racing Team).

            Race 15 will be the final qualifier of the afternoon and highlights the last of the undefeated, #2 Fly Blount (Dragon Fire - Flying Treasury, Royal Racing Team). This pup has surprised racing fans with his fantastic early speed out of the starting box. Let’s see how Blount takes on another fine early-foot athlete, round two victor #4 Cedar Maxine (Team Record* - Millys Moment, James Douglas Kennel)                                                          

            The top 16 point earners following round three, will advance to the Puppy Stakes semifinals slated for Wednesday afternoon, August 27.

            The $20,000 Gallagher / Kinnaird Puppy Stakes championship final will be contested Monday afternoon, September 1, Labor Day.              

            Post time for the first race Saturday afternoon is 1:00 p.m. with gates opening at 11:30 a.m.

            Formerly known as the Labor Day Puppy Stakes, this marks the sixth year of its’ new moniker, named in memory of two Palm Beach County legendary sportscasters, and great friends of Palm Beach Kennel Club, Jim Gallagher and Buck Kinnaird.
