Round 3 of the bestbet Sprint Classic runs on Monday evening July 24th at bestbet Jacksonville. Although the field has gotten smaller and competition has gotten taller. Only 4 races remain in the stakes and every point counts from now on out if you want to make it into the finals. Leading the way with back to back wins is Watch Me and Ww Mind At Rest, but they are not the only ones that stand a chance at making it into the elite 8. Loads of talent is still on tap, including several greyhounds that has been stakes finalist before, along with a stakes winner, and the track record holder. Let’s take a closer look at the remaining races and see if we can start off the week right with some winning wagers!

Round 3 of the bestbet Sprint Classic
Race 7 – Forget the last race. The puppy gets back on track in this effort. Pure Sensation has been just that since arriving at bestbet and tonight we get to see his dominance once again. With 5 wins in 6 starts, including some by double digits in blazing times, he has the goods no matter how many times he has been around the oval. Look for a solid break and for him to control the second half of this effort for the win. Trying to make him work early will be the fleet foot runners Gs Viola and Speedo Tuxedo, and late he must also be concerned with Pat C Hash Tag. (5-1-2-6)
Race 10 – Tough race here as the undefeated Watch Me tries to keep the streak intact in this effort. Breaking is the key to his success, and on one here has the hops early to deny him the front end. The only problem is, there might be some here that can run him down late and steal away this thunder. I still think he holds on, but it will be close as the track record holder, Real Good Feeling, is posted well and has enough gears late to catch anyone if she is around the lead early on. Others to consider here including the always chasing threat Kells Ferrari and the steady gaining factor Pat C Typhoon. (5-3-6-8)
Race 11 – Hey Hey Daddy is no stranger to winning races, or stakes races either, as she was the champ in this race in 2016. She is as fast as she wants to be and gets a fantastic inside post position in this effort. With 5 straight races in the quiniela, she will be a major factor again tonight. Applying early pressure will be the second-round winner Gs Humongous from the outside, along with the 6 races in a row in the money runner Perfect Pitch, and the ideally posted puppy threat that is Lk’s Black Gold. (2-8-7-1)
Race 12 – Here we get the other undefeated runner, Ww Mind At Rest. Tonight, I think we get more of the same from this fantastic girl. Peaking at the right time, she gets another good outside post, and it could be another box to wire romp. She will not be alone early or late and the breakers and the closers here at extremely talented. Lk’s Freestar was a second-round winner, and has won 4 of her last 6 efforts. With loads of early speed, she too could go box to wire and steal away the win. Huge closer Dutch Double gets a great outside post and could run them all down if the mood suits him tonight, and don’t forget about former stakes finalist Boc’s Andross either. She has 5 straight in the trifecta, including 2 wins, and should provide the leaders with a challenge again tonight. (8-2-7-4)
The Semi-Finals of the 2017 bestbet Sprint Classic will run on Saturday evening July 29th at bestbet Jacksonville.
