With the points being spread all over the place after two-round of the 2019 Ironhound Stakes, this third- round race is extra important. This one will determine just who makes it into the elite 8 and has a shot at the title on Saturday evening April 13th at bestbet Jacksonville. Loads of talent remain for this 550-leg of the race, and with 2 empty posts, there should be loads of room for the competitors to rush and run on Saturday evening. Let’s look at the remaining races and see if we can get you cashing some tickets this weekend at bestbet Jacksonville.
Round 3 of the Ironhound Stakes – Saturday evening April 6th, 2019
Race 5 – (empty post) Here I am right back on the bandwagon with Pat C Bucko. The comment doesn’t do it justice, but he got left a bit early and never recovered over the shortest course that we run. Here he gets the empty post next door, gets a little longer to get the ship righted, and find a way to get up at the wire for the win. Ww’s Wonderous will thrive from this outside post and she has already had some success over the 550-yard course. She has good early speed at 660, and that will translate a bit in this effort. Look for her to be force throughout in this effort. Sea Seeker gets a notice strictly because of the post position. He is all rail all the time and gets to start this race off in the 1 box. He proved best at the wire last time out and might have a shot to do the same tonight. He could have upset plans in this effort. Arkans Speedy can’t be forgotten in this effort either. He too has the empty post next door and should be a steady threat once again for the duration of this effort. He has been in the money in both rounds, only one of found in the stakes, and the only one in this race. He likes the post and could factor higher up the totem pole if he can get out of the starting box fast tonight. (4-7-1-6)
Race 9 – No better greyhounds to pick for the 550 leg than a pair that has been running this distance on a consistent basis. Baby Stop Crying has been winning in grade A over this distance and should have a class edge over the rest of this field. This closer draws a good post, and even though she won’t be in the early lead in this effort, she will find a way to win at the wire tonight. Ace Cinnamonroll is the other sprinter that should be a threat throughout in this effort. This breaker will most likely see the front end in this effort and will be the one to catch before the wire. She has been run down from behind in the past and will be again tonight. Either way you like them, this should be the dynamic duo up front in this effort. Fakeit To Makeitwon over 330 last time out and if she can break like that again, she might just pull off the upset in this effort. She is a long way from the rail in the 8 box, so she will need to be in front to avoid any trouble getting inside. With some success over 550 in the past, she too has a shot at winning and making the finals tonight. Arkans Tt Cash is a steady plugger that might have a tough time winning, but an easy time getting into the money in this effort. He is posted well and has enough early to be around and enough late to stay there. In the money in both of his efforts in the stakes so far, expect more of the same tonight. (2-3-8-7)
