Tiger Boy wraps up big week for McAllister
Hambleton closing in standings
Flyin Carnoustie goes for 70th career win Monday night
Last Thursday night McAllister kennel’s Tiger Boy was honored at the Greyhound Hall of Fame in Abilene, KS as the 2011Rural Rube winner and All-America Team Captain. Two days later Tiger Boy wrapped up a big week for McAllister when he scored a box to wire win over the 660-yard course. Tiger’s victory made it 17 for McAllister that topped the week. It was also a big week for Hambleton that won 15 races and moved into a two-way tie for second place with 172 wins in the standings with D’Arcy. Cal Holland is in fourth place followed by Lester Raines that rounds out the top five kennels.
Sitting at the top of the leader board is Patriot kennel that continues to overpower their rivals with a massive 1,563 starts this year and 224 wins compared to the second place D’Arcy with 1,023 starts and Hambleton at 1,204. Abernathy has the least amount of starts with 826 this year and 65 wins in 15th place out of 15 kennels. Capabal is just a nose in front with 827 starts sitting in the eleventh place position.
McAllister kennel’s Flyin Carnoustie could mark a 70th career win Monday night in race ten. The July 2008 son of Dragon Fire x Flying Snap On has been a fierce competitor, but a turn of the head two years ago has kept the male out of stakes races. Carnoustie’s one bad move barred him from all feature competitions, but that hasn’t kept the male from racking up wins for the kennel. Carnoustie takes on O’Donnell kennel’s Donkey Kong that has won four of his past five starts.
The "power pups" will be taking center stage this Saturday night May 5th in round one of the Gold Trophy Juvenile stakes. It is also Kentucky Derby weekend. The gates are opening early both Friday and Saturday at 10:00 am.
