Two greyhounds – Blanchard Kennel’s Penrose Boss and Jacobs Racing Kennel’s Abbi’s Eagle – are undefeated after two rounds of the $100,000 Mountaineer Classic at Wheeling Island.

Penrose Boss and Abbi’s Eagle both posted closing victories in the stretch Friday afternoon in the second round. The sprinters have accumulated 30 points.

The Lester Raines Kennel had four wins in the second round – Teaser’s Tickle, Craigie Daughtry, CTW Cant Stop It and JS Slush Fund. Other second round winners were Abbi’s Frontman (Jacobs Racing), WW Go Chiefs Go (Wayne Ward) and KB’s Copy Kat (Charter Kennel).

The field will be cut to 40 sprinters for the third preliminary round scheduled for Wednesday matinee, Oct. 13. The field will tentatively be cut to 24 sprinters, but could be higher, for the semifinal round on Sunday afternoon, Oct. 17.

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.
