Two greyhounds have posted back-to-back victories in rounds four and five of the $140,000 Wheeling Island National.
The field was cut to 32 greyhounds for the fourth, fifth and sixth rounds with points accumulated in the first three qualifiers dropped. The sixth round will be Wednesday afternoon, May 25.
The consolation and championship final are planned for the Monday, May 30, matinee card (Memorial Day).
Atascocita Sig and WW’s Glow N Show registered their second consecutive victories during Saturday afternoon’s fifth round. Each has accumulated 32 points and appear to be locks to make the final.

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.
