Greyhounds: Pups the attraction at Dundalk.

UNRACED STAKEShave a special place in the overall scheme of things in Irish greyhound racing and Dundalk should attract many potential buyers tonight, where the opening round of the Droopys Scholes at Stud Unraced Puppy 410 could see the introduction of many future champions, writes Michael Fortune.

It is easy to get carried away about this type of stake, but this time it seems justified. Each heat contains more than one or two potential stars. Many of Ireland's top kennels are represented and, not surprisingly, Ian Reilly introduces some very interesting youngsters. These include

two sons of Droopys Vieri and Droopys Kristin, which makes them half-brothers to Droopys Scholes and Droopys Cahill. It will be interesting to see how they go.

Other interesting runners include Coolavanny Beck, trained by Frazer Black. The son of Knockeevan Star and Blonde Returns qualified in a brilliant 21.74sec. It's certainly an interesting stake and one that could be worth keeping an eye on.
