Gordon, owned by Lindsay Ryan, notched a three-peat today in the annual Wiener Dog Race at Batavia Downs.
Gordon bested a field of 72 wieners that converged on the Downs from all over WNY.
The grand prize was a $100 free play at Batavia Downs Casino.
Lindsay Ryan, extremely happy with Gordon’s victory, was hinting of retirement for her fleet-footed canine.
“He’s going to be seven next year and we will have to see what happens, maybe it’s time for Gordon to retire. I’d like to give someone else a chance to win,” Ryan said.
Finishing second, two-dog lengths behind Gordon, was Daisy owned by Vernon Marzolf while Max owned by Chris Cummings and Isabella owned by Victoria Small tied for third.
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!
