Superior Product continued his dominant run at Dubuque Greyhound Park last weekend, sweeping his three qualifying races of the King and Queen stakes.
He’s won six of his last seven; he’ll be one of the betting favorites in Friday’s championship race. Catch his third round race on the video.
Superior Kennel placed three in the championship again: Superior Product, Superior Panama and Mymotorsrunnin. Last year, Superior had three in the championship race, but Allisonracinteam, trained by Brian Webb, won.
None of the other double winners, SE’s Tali Ritz, B’s Graciebswift or Winston Wishbone could muster more than a third.
