courtesy of Gulf Greyhound ParkD.Q. Williams Kennel has loads of top grade AA greyhounds here at Gulf Greyhound Park and this week It’s A Reality has stepped to the front of the line to earn the Greyhound of the Week award.
It’s A Reality began his career back in July 2009 quickly moving up the grade ladder winning five of his first six races then moved on to win his first effort in top grade AA. Since arriving in grade AA, It’s A Reality has managed to remain along the elite greyhounds at the Gulf never dropping from our top level of competition. It’s A Reality possesses the perfect running style for our track, quick early speed from the starting box.
On Saturday evening, April 24, It’s A Reality headed to the 550 yard starting box as the even money favorite despite drawing an unfavorable #5 post position. As the lid opened, It’s A Reality broke to the lead to take command of the race and would never be challenged coasting home to a five-length victory in a time of 30.00 seconds.
It’s A Reality’s next start would be on Saturday Matinee, May 1st in front of over 1.400 fans here to watch the Kentucky Derby. This time, It’s A Reality would be breaking from the outside #8 post position as the crowd favorite once again at odds of 6/5. The crowd roared as It’s A Reality shot out of the starting box immediately establishing a three length advantage over his rivals heading into the first turn. It’s A Reality very rarely gets caught while on the lead and on this day, It’s A Reality would cruise to 4 ½ length win equaling his last race winning time of 30.00 seconds.
This 71-pound speedster out of (Dodgem By Design – Chantel Rose), which happens to be a littermate to Rough Hustle, now has 15 wins out of only 27 career starts. It’s A Reality appears to be in top form heading into the $50,000 Texas Round Up Sprint Championship starting on May 15. Congratulations to trainer Craig Edwards from D.Q. Williams Kennel and It’s A Reality for these fantastic efforts.
