Monday, October 25, 2021

Favorite Teaser’s Tickle took charge early and never looked back in capturing the $100,000 Mountaineer Classic Saturday afternoon at Wheeling Island.

Breaking from the one hole, the Lester Raines Kennel sprinter rushed up to the lead around the first turn, then opened up a 2-length cushion down the backstretch before winning by 2 ½ lengths in a quick 29.58. Abbi’s Eagle (Jacobs Racing) took runner up honors while Penrose Boss (Blanchard) rounded out the trifecta ticket.

Completing the final order of finish were RS’s Dark Night (Lester Raines), fourth; Ding Dong Ditch (Imark), fifth; Abbi’s Frontman (Jacobs Racing), sixth; CTW Black Forest (Steve Sarras), seventh; and Frappe (Blanchard), eighth.

Teaser’s Tickle, a September 2019 greyhound out of Bella Infrared-Beautiful Tease, is trained by Joel Roden and owned by Suzanne Blair. In 14 career races, he has 9 wins, 1 second and 1 third.

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.
