THE FIELD HAS REACHED THE STARTING GATE
WITH FEW INCIDENTS OF DISRUPTION
EXCEPT FOR THE HEADLESS HORSEMAN TRYING TO
KEEP HIS MOUNT IN A STRAIGHT LINE BEHIND THE OTHERS

THIS MAY EVEN PROVE TO BE TROUBLE ON THE TRACK!
ALTHOUGH HORSES BEING A HERD SPECIES GENERALLY FOLLOW OTHERS

EVERYONE IS IN THEIR GATE EXCEPT FOR JESSE JAMES WHO HAS
HAD HIS SIDEARMS TAKEN AWAY AND BEING FURIOUS ABOUT THIS
IS BEING A VERY NAUGHTY BOY

THE STEWARDS HAVE EXPLAINED TO HIM THE DANGER INVOLVED
IN RUNNING WITH LOADED GUNS AND TO PREVENT ACCIDENTS OR
HARM TO ANYONE THIS WAS A NECESSARY PRECAUTION

NOW HE HAS ACCEPTED THAT EXPLANATION, THO BEGRUDGINGLY
AND HAS ENTERED THE GATE

WE NOW TURN YOU OVER TO OUR GUEST TRACK ANNOUNCER: COUNT DRACULA
Image

"THANK YOU FOR THE DARK SUNGLASSES
THIS SUNLIGHT IS KILLING ME -- HA HA HA ...... AS IF... "

AND..... THEY'RE OFF IN THE SUPURRR SPOOKTACULAR STAKES

Image

TAKING A SHORT LEAD IS PRINCESS FIONA FOLLOWED CLOSELY
BY A TRIO OF MR MET --- YOSEMITE SAM --- + THE PINK PANTHER

IT'S MANY LENGTHS BACK TO THE REST OF THE FIELD
NONE OF WHOM SEEM TO BE IN A HURRY YET...

OUT OF THE TURN THEY COME AS PRINCESS FIONA
HAS TAKEN COMMAND OF THE RACE WITH A HUGE LEAD

IT IS GONNA TAKE PEGASUS TO TRY AND CATCH HER BUT NONE WERE
ENTERED TODAY AS THE TRACK SUPERINTENDENT DECLARED IT UNFAIR

THE RACE IS FOR RUNNING --- NOT FLYING!

THE PINK PANTHER IS GOBBLING UP GROUND WITH INCREDIBLE SPEED
AND NOW HAS MOVED WITHIN 3 LENGTHS OF PRINCESS FIONA WHO IS
SHOWING NO SIGNS OF TIRING AS HER INNER OGRE HAS TAKEN COMMAND

KHALEESI NOW HAS SUDDENLY MADE A BOLD MOVE AS HER DRAGON
ESSENCE HAS FIRED HER UP WITH INCENTIVE TO RUN FASTER

IT'S A VERY LONG WAY BACK TO YOSEMITE SAM AND BAST
WHO SEEM TO BE HAVING A DISCUSSION ABOUT SOMETHING
THO WE MAY NEVER KNOW WHAT?

EARLIER, IN THE PADDOCK, BAST THE EGYPTIAN CAT GODDESS WAS
OVERHEARD MUTTERING SOMETHING ABOUT THE PHAROAH
BUT WE COULD NOT HEAR ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND
SO PERHAPS THAT IS WHAT SHE WAS SHARING WITH YOSEMITE SAM
WHO SEEMED BORED + UNINTERESTED IN THE TOPIC

THE HEADLESS HORSEMAN IS ALL OVER THE TRACK AS HIS STEED
SEEMS TO BE HAVING AN ISSUE WITH WHAT HE SEES AROUND HIM
AND THE FEAR ALONE IS CAUSING VERY ERRATIC BEHAVIOUR ...
LEAVING THE HEADLESS HORSEMAN IN THE DARK .......... AS USUAL

IT'S ANOTHER FEW LENGTHS BACK TO THE WITCH
WHO SEEMS TO BE TRYING TO WORK A MAGICK SPELL ON JONNY QUEST
TO GET HIM TO SLOW DOWN ---- SO FAR IT SEEMS TO BE WORKING

BEHIND THE WITCH + JONNY QUEST IS MR MET WHO SOMEHOW
MANAGED TO DROP HIS BALLS AND HAS BEGUN TO WANDER ALL
OVER TRYING TO RETRIEVE THEM -- LOSING FOCUS ON RUNNING!

AND WAY FAR BACK IS JESSE JAMES WHO BEGAN THE RACE VERY
DISGRUNTLED OVER HAVING HIS GUNS TAKEN AWAY THAT HIS
FUMING + FUSSING HAS CAUSED HIM TO "COP" AN ATTITUDE
LEAVING HIM FAR BEHIND THE REST OF THE RUNNERS


AND DOWN THE STRETCH HERE THEY COME...

PRINCESS FIONA WITH A MONSTER LEAD (NO OFFENSE INTENDED)
SUDDENLY CAUGHT SIGHT OF SHREK IN THE STANDS WAVING HER ON

THIS INCITED A SURGE OF POWER THAT WAS SO HUGE....
HER OGRE WITHIN ALMOST EMERGED ----
BUT WAS RESTRAINED BY HER INTENSE WILL TO WIN


THE PINK PANTHER INSTEAD OF BEING SNEAKY + STEALTHY TODAY
DECIDED TO RUN LIKE THE PANTHER SHOULD --- FAST!

MEANWHILE BEHIND THE FRONT RUNNING DUO

--- KHALEESI AND YOSEMITE SAM STILL ENGAGED IN BUMPING + QUARRELING
ARE NOT GAINING MUCH GROUND ON THE LEADERS

BAST WAS ALMOST KNOCKED SIDEWAYS INTO TOMORROW LAND BY
THE HEADLESS HORSEMAN WHO HAS NO CLUE WHERE HE IS ....

THE WITCH HAS BEGUILED JONNY QUEST WHO SEEMS TO BE ENAMORED
BY HER --- ALMOST MESMERIZED INTO SNAIL MODE --- STAYING RIGHT
ALONG SIDE OF HER ... INSTEAD OF MOVING AHEAD

AND WAY FAR BACK... POOR SAD MR MET STILL TRYING TO FIND HIS LOST BALLS
HAS NOT GAINED ANY GROUND NOR SHOWING ANY SIGN OF RUNNING

JESSE JAMES SO FAR BACK HE MIGHT BE LOOKING FOR THE OK CORRAL
INSTEAD OF THE FINISH LINE!

AS THE WIRE LOOMS JUST AHEAD ---

PRINCESS FIONA WITH YET ANOTHER POWER SURGE HAS LEFT THE
REST IN HER MIGHTY WAKE ... LEAVING NO DOUBT AT ALL THAT
THE PINK PANTHER'S FANCY DANCE SPEED ATTEMPT WILL HAVE NO
EFFECT ON THE OUTCOME

THE PINK PANTHER WITH ALL GUSTO / ATTITUDE AND SPEED WILL
FINISH 2nd WITH KHALEESI TRYING TO KEEP HER DRAGONS
IN CHECK, WILL OWN THE SHOW SPOT

YOSEMITE SAM FINALLY SHOOK FREE OF BAST + HER CAT GODDESS MAGICK
TO FINISH JUST A RED WHISKER BEHIND THE FRONT RUNNING TRIO


$$-OFFICIAL ORDER OF FINISH-$$
AFTER ALL OBJECTIONS WERE DENIED
AND YES THERE WERE SO MANY THAT THE STEWARDS WERE LAST SEEN
RUNNING IN FEAR OF THEIR LIVES INTO A HIDDEN SANCTUARY
PREPARED FOR JUST SUCH AN INCIDENT


1st ~ PRINCESS FIONA ========= $168.50
WITH A DYNAMIC VICTORY CAUSING SHREK TO DASH
OUT ONTO THE FIELD TO SCOOP UP HIS LOVE ..
SCARING SOME WHO WERE STANDING IN THE WINNER'S CIRCLE
Image ~WINNER / BELLE OF THE BC BALL~


2nd ~ THE PINK PANTHER ========== $69.00
A VALIANT EFFORT OF FELINE FRENZY BASED SPEED
BUT NOT ENOUGH TO EVEN GET CLOSE TO THE WINNER
Image


3rd ~ KHALEESI =================== $51.70
HER STRUGGLE WITH HER DRAGONS TRYING TO ESCAPE MIGHT BE
WHAT CAUSED HER TO NOT RUN AS FAST AS SHE MIGHT HAVE
Image


4th ~ YOSEMITE SAM =============== $5O.70
ALMOST CAUGHT KHALEESI TILL HE SAW WHAT LOOKED LIKE A PIECE
OF DRAGON WING STICKING OUT OF HER CLOTHING....
WHICH IN HIS MIND WAS ENOUGH REASON TO KEEP HIS DISTANCE THO NOT MUCH
Image


***ALSO RAN***

BAST ====================== $46.00
COULD STILL BE HEARD MUTTERING SOMETHING ABOUT THE PHAROAH
BUT IN GODDESS-SPEAK .... SO NOBODY CAN QUITE UNDERSTAND HER

THE HEADLESS HORSEMAN ======== $42.60
THE SOURCE OF MANY OBJECTIONS AND VALID AS WELL
BUT DISCOUNTED BY THE STEWARDS
THE HORSE KNEW WHERE TO RUN BUT SADLY HIS JOCKEY DID NOT

THE WITCH ======-========== $33.40
EXHAUSTED SO MUCH ENERGY ON HER SPELLS THAT SHE EVEN
CAUSED HER CAT TO FLY OFF THE BROOM AND RUN ON HIS OWN!

JONNY QUEST ============== $32.80
BECAME SO MESMERIZED BY THE WITCH'S SPELL THAT
HE LOST TOTAL FOCUS ON RUNNING AND REMAINED CONTENTED
TO JUST TAG ALONG BESIDE HER BROOM

MR MET ================= $27.40
WAS SO PRE-OCCUPIED FROM THE START
THEN LOSING HIS BALLS AT THE HALFWAY MARK
EXERTED MORE EFFORT IN FINDING THEM THAN RUNNING

JESSE JAMES ============ $0
TRIED TO ROB A BANK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RACE
BUT NEVER NOTICED THE BIG RED CROSS OVER THE ENTRANCE!

YES FOLKS ....... JESSE JAMES TRIED TO ROB A BLOOD BANK
(WHERE MANY OF MY RELATIVES VISIT TO MAKE A VALID WITHDRAWAL)

THO THE BLOOD BANK FELT SOME SYMPATHY FOR POOR JESSE ~
(ALONG WITH HYSTERICAL LAUGHTER)
THEY GAVE HIM A -GOLDEN GOOSE EGG- FOR ALL HIS EFFORTS
Image

WE NOW BID YOU ALL A GOOD EVENING FROM KEENELAND RACE TRACK

MY EYES ARE KILLING ME FROM THE SUNLIGHT PLUS MY RESTRAINT
TO KEEP MY TEETH FIRMLY PLANTED IN MY MOUTH AND NOT A NECK
NOW WELCOMES THE APPROACHING DUSK AND SHADOW WITH RELIEF

I NOW WILL HEAD BACK TO MY BELOVED TRANSYLVANIA
FOR SOME MUCH NEEDED "RED WINE" DELIGHT
