WIDE-OPEN FIELD IN ROUND 3 OF PALM BEACH KENNEL CLUB’S $20,000 GALLAGHER / KINNAIRD PUPPY STAKES WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON, AUGUST 24!
West Palm Beach, Fl. - Qualifying for Palm Beach Kennel Club’s $20,000 Gallagher / Kinnaird Puppy Stakes continues with third-round action Wednesday afternoon, August 24.
So far between two rounds of qualifying, there has been ten races contested. And stunningly, there have been ten different winners!
Normally when entering the third round of qualifying, one would have a general idea who would advance to the semifinals, and even have thoughts on a pre-championship race favorite.
Not this time around ladies and gentlemen. The third round promises to be filled with surprises along with a mixture of favorites and longshots lighting up the tote board.
Wednesday afternoon qualifiers will be held in races 8, 10, 12, 14 and 15.
The top 16 point earners following round three, will advance to the Puppy Stakes semifinals slated for Monday afternoon, August 29.
The $20,000 Gallagher / Kinnaird Puppy Stakes championship final will be contested Monday afternoon, September 5, Labor Day.
Post time for the first race Wednesday 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 third 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.
Point System: 1st - 15 points, 2nd - 10, 3rd - 6, 4th - 4, 5th - 3, 6th - 2, 7th - 1, 8th - 0
