Whistler's Betty raises another $1,200 dollars for Greyhound Adoption.

Whistler's Betty runs another nice race finishing 2nd August 7 at Wheeling. A 2nd place finish in Grade B 5/16 equals 3 points. Wheeling points were $801 this week. Which is $2,400 gross ($1,200 net). SEGA is entitled to $600 dollars and PUPS WITHOUT PARTNERS is entitled to $600 dollars.

This means that so far the total that Whistler's Betty has raised in just two weeks is $3,200 dollars. $2,000 last week from her Grade C Win and $1,200 this week from her Grade B second place finish.


Cheers,

Just to update....last Saturday, 8/14/04, Betty won a grade B sprint at Wheeling----easily, I might add....so that is another big win to add to the total she's already raised.

Now----she has to face up to some pretty heavy hitters, because she's going into grade A. And grade A at Wheeling is real tough. Hopefully, Betty is in the same sort of form cycle that she was in when she won grade AA at Wheeling, earlier this year.

At any rate, she's a gorgeous girl, and we sure do appreciate her dedication to the task at hand. Smile

And I don't mind telling you, Betty, that when I was sitting here Saturday listening to the call of your race----and thinking of exactly all that had transpired over the last few months.... and knowing that so many of our friends were of a like mind and also tuned in rooting for you....it brought a tear to my eye.

I took the liberty of crossposting this, from GG...authored by Larry Birnbaum

Whistler's Betty earns another $1,800 for Greyhound Adoption

Betty's Grade B win at Wheeling last Saturday was worth 6 points. Each point was worth $602 dollars last week. The race grossed $3,600 dollars which at a 50% payout means that Raceforadoption is entitled to $1,800.

Very shortly Penny and Pam will be receiving checks for $900 dollars each for Pups Without Partners and SEGA. So far Whistler's Betty has raised $5,000 for Greyhound Adoption in just three races. She sports an impressive record of 2 Wins and 1 Second place finish in the three starts she has raced for charity.

This brings the total so far that has been raised for Raceforadoption.com to be $25,000 dollars when you add the original $20,000 dollars that was donated to the $5,000 dollars she has ran out. Go Betty Go! ... Win Betty Win! ... Run Betty Run!
