from Vera's NewsSaturday night October 29 will be the first round of the Fall Juvenile stakes. Craigie I Am Jak (Campbell) who won the Fall Sprint three weeks ago and St. Petersburg Derby champion Storm Rush (Hambleton) is among the headliners. Storm Rush who just turned two years old last month was also a Fall Sprint finalist. Craigie I Am Jak kicked off the season as the win leader during the entire month of July. Jak’s racing style that is similar to Rush’s has thrilled fans that have watched Jak break, drop back and pour it on in the homestretch.
Both greyhounds have major stakes wins under their belts and are hoping to wrap up the year with another trophy. D’Arcy kennel’s Sand Cloud is also among the entries. Sand Cloud was a finalist in the Fall Sprint and broke sharply, but jammed in the first turn and fell. The 60-pound female was rested and won her schooler and first start back.
Lester Raines kennel is seeking a fourth consecutive Juvenile title. This year’s entries are littermates Frizzell in race four and Felicitate in race eight. The Fall Juvenile final will be held Saturday night November 12th.
