Tuesday, November 23, 2021

UBX Crackereater now shares the 330-yard track record at Wheeling Island.

The Xtrem Hess Racing Kennel sprinter stopped the clock in 16.74 on Nov. 11 to tie the mark held by Lester Raines Kennel’s Atascocita Santo since December 2015. UBX Crackereater jumped to an early lead and never looked back in winning by 2 lengths.

Owned by Cheyenne Criswell and Jason Jess, UBX Crackereater – a January 2019 pup out of SH Avatar-Beautiful Tease – has 6 wins, 5 seconds, 3 thirds and 4 fourths in 33 starts this year. She is trained by Jill Spicer.

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.
