The third round is set for Friday afternoon, May 13. At this juncture, the field will be cut to 32 greyhounds and all points earned will be dropped.
Point totals start over for the remaining three rounds of qualifying – Tuesday afternoon, May 17, Saturday matinee, May 21, and Wednesday afternoon, May 25. The consolation and championship final are planned for the Monday, May 30, matinee card (Memorial Day).

I was introduced to greyhound racing by a friend in the late 1970s at Wheeling Downs and fell in love with the sport and the athletes immediately. Throughout the years, I have developed a deep passion for racing. In the mid 1990s, I started writing a weekly greyhound column and shortly thereafter became a writer for The Greyhound Review.

I have enjoyed watching and writing about these wonderful competitors, including All-Americans DD's Nelson, Kiowa Sweet Trey, Gene's Champion, WW Apple Jax, Greys Royalcrown, Nimby TP Jan, Hi Noon Hero, Gable Sour Cream, KB's Ruckus and Cry Case.
