9. The 1st head to head greyhound race in recent memory
It was billed as the race of races and it was between Blendway..a true speed dog who ran wire to wire in every race. And T-Bone a classic come from way behind to win dog. Both had gone undeafeated the whole season. The race brought out 30,000 to a track that normally was 7000-10,000.

Blendway broke out in front as expected and 1/2 way down the back-stretch T- Bone was on his heals. T-Bone slipped and broke his leg.

He was rushed off by the vets and I think he survived fine. And in the KC area the greyhounds get adopted out and dont get put to sleep. But that was a very harrowing experience and as far as I know the last head to head race ever.
