PFANNYS TINY TIM from the Hardison-Rader Kennel and trained by Brian Webb had late power to propel him to victory in the 2010 $2000 Dubuque Inaugural Stakes on Opening Day of Live Greyhound Racing at Dubuque Greyhound Park at Mystique on Saturday April 24th.  This race included the winner of last years Iowa Breeders Cup, a two time Greyhound of the year winner, last years Dubuque Inaugural winner, the Maiden Debut winner and the $45,000 Future Star Stakes winner.

The race started with GO BON HAWK TALK from the Sweetcorn City Kennel breaking out first followed by PFANNYS TINY TIM and in third spot was last years Iowa Breeders Cup winner HILCO VISION from the Oxbow-Trow Kennel.  These three greyhounds lead the rest down the back stretch with HEAD EM EAST from the Copper Kettle Kennel back in 5th spot coming fast.  At the top of them home stretch PFANNYS TINY TIM got out front and ran to a 2 1/2 length win.  HEAD EM EAST came on strong to take 2nd, while HILCO VISION takes third and the early leader GO BON HAWK TALK took 4th.  On a wet track on the 5/16th of a mile course the winning time was 30.88.
