Konomi and RF River have won both of their qualifiers in Iowa Greyhound Park’s King and Queen stake.
Both are in excellent shape to make the final regardless of their finishes in Friday night’s third round.
Konomi, fresh off his win in the National Futurity at Wheeling Island, has dominated his races thus far. To miss the July 4th matinee final, he would either need to be scratched or finish last and have RF Furious or JD Undeniable win.
River is in good shape on the Queen’s side. However, if she is scratched or finishes fifth or lower and Slatex Julie or Kelo wins, it’s possible she could miss the final.
Slatex Larnce is in second in the Kings bracket with two places. Boc’s Queen Gina has a win and a place to trail River by eight points.
Points are 20-12-8-5-3-2-1-0.
