Breaking from the four box, in the 7th schooling race on the card for Monday Evening September 27th, Red dove to the rail early and ran into trouble right out of the box. This tough little cookie didn't let that bother her at all. She just kept moving inside and took advantage of the extra space on the rail. As the field entered the backside, she took over command of this race and cruised on to the wire alone to win by almost 7 lengths.

If you don't know the story of Afleet Red, where have you been? Just kidding, she was donated by Lester Raines to be raffled off for Greyhounds As Pets of Northeast Florida. She raised almost $10,000 for adoption and with each and every start she finishes in the money, Lester donated another 15% to GAP.
Join me and wishing good luck to this tough little girl who will be trying to climb the ladder and join her littermates in grade A, and to once again thank Lester Raines, Deborah Strickland, and Mike Gerard for their support of greyhound adoption.
