**RESULTS**

GOOD AFTERNOON AND WELCOME TO
SUPURRR~STAKES~SATURDAY
WHERE THE THREAT OF VAMPIRES HAS BEEN GREATLY REDUCED


OUR FEATURE EVENT IS: "THE COUNT DRACULA STAKES"
Image


LATE SCRATCHES: -(NO BITES)-

ONCE AGAIN ~ ~ ~ "COINCIDENTALLY---" ;)
TIGER DANCER & CIGARSHOP -- BOTH MISSED FLIGHTS

JOHN HENRY AFTER BEING VANNED OFF IN LAST RACE
IS TAKING A BRIEF BREAK FOR R&R

RAVEN ~ NO INFO FROM CONNECTIONS

THESE SCRATCHES HAVE LEFT US WITH A FIELD OF 10
INCLUDING DEFENDING CHAMPION, DUSTY
-- RUNNING FOR A REPEAT --


THE HORSES ARE LOADED AND EVERYONE IS STANDING QUIETLY
JUST WAITING FOR CRIMINAL TYPE TO SETTLE DOWN
AFTER REFUSING TO ENTER THE GATE
& OBVIOUSLY NOT INTO RUNNING A RACE?


AND AWAAAAAAAAAY THEY GO IN THE "COUNT DRACULA STAKES"
Image


LOOKS LIKE EVERYONE HAS THEIR RUNNING SHOES ON TODAY
AS 5 HEAD OUT FOR A SHORT EARLY LEAD

BLUNNY - STARK - POST TIME MIKE - REAL QUIET
AND OAKLAWN CAPPER RETURNING AFTER A LAY OFF

IT'S JUST A LENGTH BACK TO:
CRIMINAL TYPE - PEEPTOAD & CATALINA

IT'S A FEW LENGTHS BACK TO
RUFFIAN & DUSTY WHO SEEM CONTENT
AND COMFORTABLE BRINGING UP THE REAR FOR NOW


OUT OF THE TURN THEY COME
AND HOW QUICKLY THINGS CAN CHANGE!


WHAT WAS LAST A MOMENT AGO ~ NOW IS FIRST!

DUSTY WITH A POWERFUL MOVE HAS TAKEN COMMAND
ALONG WITH RUFFIAN WHO HAS ROARED UP JUST
IN BEHIND THE DEFENDING CHAMPION, DUSTY


IT'S A TIGHTLY BUNCHED FIELD
BEHIND THE FRONT RUNNING FEISTY FILLYS

OAKLAWN CAPPER & POST TIME MIKE
ARE ONLY A LENGTH BACK - AND ANOTHER LENGTH BACK
TO CATALINA & BLUNNY & REAL QUIET

AT THE BACK FOR NOW ARE CRIMINAL TYPE & STARK


THEY'RE AT THE TOP OF THE STRETCH


DUSTY HAS TAKEN TOTAL COMMAND OF THE RACE
AS RUFFIAN JUMPED A SHADOW
(POSSIBLY MISTAKING IT FOR A VAMPIRE?) -- :evil:
--- LOSING HER MOMENTUM AND DROPPING BACK BADLY

IT'S A STAMPEDE BEHIND THE FRONT RUNNING FILLY
AS 8 HAVE TURNED UP THE HEAT
GAINING GROUND ON THE LEADER
WHO SEEMS VERY DETERMINED TO
REPEAT HER WINNING EFFORT OF LAST TIME

ONLY CRIMINAL TYPE HAS FAILED TO RALLY IN THE FINAL FURLONGS


AND DOWN THE STRETCH THEY COME


DUSTY SHOWING NO SIGNS OF SLOWING DOWN ~

A HUGE ROAR FROM THE CROWD
AS 5 -- SUDDENLY AND POWERFULLY HAVE INCREASED SPEED
GAINING ON THE FIERCE FILLY IN FRONT -
CLOSING THE GAP WITH EVERY STRIDE

STARK - CATALINA - PEEPTOAD - BLUNNY - RUFFIAN
IN A LINE ACROSS THE TRACK ~
EACH WITH A CHANCE OF VICTORY

EVEN POST TIME MIKE - OAKLAWN CAPPER & REAL QUIET
ARE JUST A HALF LENGTH BACK --- STILL WITH A SHOT

ONLY CRIMINAL TYPE IS OUT OF THE RUNNING
AS HE OBVIOUSLY HAS HIS MIND ON THE DOGHOUSE


THE WIRE LOOMS JUST AHEAD...


DUSTY IS ALL OUT TRYING DESPERATELY TO HOLD ON

STARK HAS MOVED UP INTO 2nd -
JUST A HALF LENGTH BEHIND THE DETERMINED DUSTY

CATALINA - PEEPTOAD & BLUNNY JUST A WHISKER BEHIND STARK....

ALL 4 STILL WITH A CHANCE ~
BUT DUSTY IS DEFIANT & AND HER DETERMINATION
WILL NOT BE DENIED AS HER NOSE TOUCHES THE WIRE

A PHOTO WILL BE NEEDED FOR 2nd / 3rd /4th:
IT'S THAT CLOSE!
Image


THIS HAS BEEN ONE OF THE MOST EVENLY BALANCED FIELDS
WE'VE SEEN IN QUITE AWHILE

**OBJECTION LIGHTS FLASHING**
WHICH WE EXPECTED TO SEE AFTER THE STAMPEDE TO THE WIRE

THE STEWARDS ARE TAKING A LONG LOOK AT THE REPLAY
AS 4 TRAINERS HAVE EMERGED ONTO THE FIELD
SHOWING SIGNS OF FRUSTRATION MIXED WITH CONFUSION



JOCKEYS ON PHONES
NOBODY CAN TELL WHO FINISHED WHERE

FINALLY THE TOTE BOARD HAS STOPPED FLASHING

OFFICIAL RESULTS NOW APPEAR ~
AUDIBLE CRIES OF DISAPPOINTMENT
MIXED WITH OTHER SOUNDS OF JOY

BUT THERE IS NO DOUBT AT ALL
WHO'S JOY IS THE BIGGEST ---
AS DUSTY REPEATS HER WIN
AND WILL RUN FOR THAT ELUSIVE 3-PEAT GLORY
IN HER NEXT SUPURRR~SATURDAY RACE
