For the third-straight year, Jake Arnold bested a large field of eager wiener dogs -- and some not so eager -- to take the 2011 Wiener Dog Race championship title.
A large crowd of wiener dog race enthusiasts were on hand to cheer for their favorite hungry little dachshund.
Jake Arnold, a 4-year-old owned by Jane Smart, won the big race in a photo finish, beating out first-year entrant Gordon, owned by Lindsay Ryan, and long-time rival Rudy, an 8-year-old owned by Ron Schiller.
Rudy, a previous race winner, finished second to Jake Arnold for the previous two years.
In all, 63 elongated canines raced at the Downs on today.
Something fun to do local and you can win big! Just not me. Lol

Batavia Downs is a great place for fun and food they have live entertainment and the games are fun to. They give away free plays daily and many chances to win. This year I took my little boy to see Santa and the weaner dog races so they are fun for the family as well. Great place to visit

Good place to go when you want to get away and have a little fun and maybe win some cash. I really like the made in America store!

They've done an impressive job of remodeling! Can't wait to check out the hotel!
