RF Hydra

B. August 2015
KC And All – AF Hydra (by, TNT Star Wars)
 
Track: Naples/Dubuque 
Kennel: Superior

RF Hydra
 
One could venture to say this multiple stakes performer was destined, or at least 'designed', to earn a spot in the Watch and Wager Naples 550. Impeccably bred as a direct damline descendant of legendary Alive N Well (3rd dam), she is also a result of a repeat breeding that previously brought us RF River, a 2017 Daytona 550 finalist.
 
At just over three years old and securely in her prime, RF Hydra is coming off a stellar meet at Iowa Greyhound Park in Dubuque. She was second in the Memorial Sprint and a finalist in King & Queens. She capped off the meet by winning two preliminary rounds of prestigous Iowa Breeders' Cup before finishing fourth in the Final. With all her accomplishments, she was awarded the Iowa Greyhound Park Greyhound of the Year.
 
Hydra is one of the lone greyhounds with previous experience at Naples, where she is a five time top grade winner and currently based there with Superior Kennel. Hometrack advantage should  be in her favor. With plenty of early speed and preferring the midtrack route, she fits Naples well. This combination paired with current form could make her the speed of the speed in a field shaping up to have an abundance of it.
