NGA News - Odd Inspector revisits Derby Lane winners circle

NGA News - It was a great doubleheader day for owner Linda Jones of KS.  
Wednesday matinee (Feb. 23) her star Odd Me (Kiowa Sweet Trey x Odd Logic) left his rivals in a ten-length wake in race 12 recording a 30.16. The new time eclipsed the 30.27 set earlier this year by Flying Coal City. Wednesday night Jones’ Odd Inspector (Lonesome Cry x Odd Micro) was the only repeat winner in the Sprint Classic series that pretty much guarantees him a post in the March 5 final. 
Upsets were common in round two beginning with Nova kennel's Hi Noon Renegade over LL's Dormarbuddy in race four. Race six saw M's Free Hand win over Flying Coal City, who is now in jeopardy of being eliminated from the stakes. Coal City needed a win to guarantee his post in round three, but his third place finish put him in a four-way tie for the last slot. A draw by lot will be held Thursday night Feb. 24 at 6:30 PM est, to determine who will advance. Odd Inspector made it two in a row. 
Aerial Battle, who was named to the 2010 All-America 2nd Team,I won his heat moving him into second place with 26 points in race ten. Below are the greyhounds in point order. The draw for round three will be held Thursday night and a sneak peek will be listed on Vera's News shortly after.
