Rare Deal


The baby of the field is Pat C Rare Deal. She started her career in September with a bang, winning 7 in a row including the 2018 Redemption Sprint Stakes. She continues to run in top form winning 15 out of  23 races including  the 2018 Holiday Sprint Stakes December 10th  .


No stranger to big stakes finals, Pat Collins returns to the 550 stage. In 2016, Pat and his Palm Beach team brought Pat C Short Cut to challenge the country’s best to finish 4th behind Flying Fired Up, returning 550 champion Husker Magic and the eventual race winner Need My MoneyNow. Can Scott Jarvis and team secure a Naples 550 victory for the 2012 Greyhound Hall of Fame Inductee?


Rare Deal is not always the sharpest breaker, but she uses an explosive rush to power through the first turn. On the backside, she extends her lead and waits for her rivals to try and catch-up. This style might not be the best strategy against this Watch and Wager Naples 550 field, but if she can clear the first turn unscathed she may add another Stakes victory to an already impressive resume.
