FIELD WIDE OPEN FOR PALM BEACH KENNEL CLUB $50,000 HE’S MY MAN CLASSIC CHAMPIONSHIP SATURDAY AFTERNOON,
West Palm Beach, Fl. - With a second-place finish in last Sunday’s semifinals and a sixth-place showing by her previously undefeated kennel mate RK’s Conk Gonk, Rader Racing Kennel’s Riverview Stevie earned top point-earner status as the countdown to the finale of Palm Beach Kennel Club’s $50,000 He’s My Man Classic draws near.
Riverview Stevie gave a valiant effort in attempting to chase down another kennel mate, Whats Next, but the fleet-pawed early speedster built up to much of an early lead.
In the final semifinal qualifier Sunday afternoon, the aforementioned RK’s Conk Gonk succumbed to an abundance of early speed around him at the break, allowing youngster and 15-1 long shot Kane’s Getty to snag the first-turn advantage, the victory and a shot at the $25,000 first-place treasure.
