Persistent heavy rain, thunder and lightening forced Iowa Greyhound Park to cancel the final six races Thursday night. Three of those were first round qualifiers for the Future Star stake.
Those will be part of Sunday’s 15-race card.
In the completed races, RF Paco and Super C Jazzy posted victories. Both are from Superior Kennel and are in Grade A. Paco has 7 wins for the season and Jazzy 8.
Hillbilly Rock, of Clayton Black Kennel, also posted a win.
The second round is Wednesday. The top 24 in points move on to the third round on Sunday, Sept. 22.
The top eight in points will face off Saturday, Sept. 28, for the title.
