Future Star stakes 2019

Revin Devon, 2019 Future Star stake champion at Iowa Greyhound Park.

Revin Devon overcame Super C Jazzy and a fast track Saturday night to claim the Future Star stakes at Iowa Greyhound Park.

Super C Jazzy broke on top and took a several length lead into the back stretch. However, Devon turned on the jets to pull out the victory.

“I thought that’s how the race would go, it’s what I expected,” said owner Dave Ungs. “I figured the 2 dog would outbreak him.”

Devon, of Copper Kettle Kennel, kept pressing.

“In the home stretch I could see he would get it,” Ungs said. “Until then….”

Devon rolled through the course in 30.75.

Next up for Revin Devon will be the Iowa Breeders’ Cup, according to Ungs.

Devin has five wins in a row, and six of seven, with 12 for the season.

Devin and BGR J Capt Quick completed qualifying undefeated. Quick finished third.
