******************


THE HORSES ARE LOADED INTO THE STARTING GATE
EXCEPT FOR JOHN HENRY WHO IS BALKING AT GOING IN

Image

PEPPERMINTS & A FEW PATS ON THE NECK HAVE CONVINCED
THE COLT TO GO ON IN ~ AND WE ARE READY TO RUN


AND THEY'RE OFF IN THE "NO-SNOWFLAKES" STAKES.....


Image


EVERYONE AWAY IN GOOD ORDER
AS TWO FILLYS HEAD OUT FOR THE EARLY LEAD

PEEPTOAD & DUSTY TAKE COMMAND IN THE EARLY GOING


IT'S A FEW LENGTHS BACK TO BLUNNY & REAL QUIET

RUFFIAN IS RIGHT AT THEIR TAILS

IT'S ANOTHER SEVERAL LENGTHS BACK TO THE REST
OF THE FIELD WHO HAVE NOT YET FOUND THEIR BEST STRIDE


OUT OF THE TURN THEY COME


DUSTY DID NOT HANDLE THE TURN WELL
AND HAS DROPPED BACK QUICKLY ~
LEAVING PEEPTOAD ALONE ON THE LEAD

BUT SUDDENLY, A HUGE ROAR FROM THE CROWD AS
"BLUNNY~ THE ENERGIZER BUNNY"
CHANGED FROM 'BUNNY' TO SUPER-SONIC ROCKET ----
OVERTAKING PEEPTOAD ON THE LEAD AND NOW IN COMMAND

Image


IT'S AROUND 15 LENGTHS BACK TO DUSTY, CATALINA ~
AND DEFENDING CHAMPION, REAL QUIET


THEY'RE AT THE TOP OF THE STRETCH


BLUNNY LEADING THE WAY....
AND EXTENDING HIS LEAD WITH EVERY STRIDE
OVER PEEPTOAD WHO IS ALL OUT
TRYING TO KEEP UP WITH THE COLT AT THE FRONT

Image ..... Image


DUSTY CONTINUES TO RUN EVENLY - STILL IN 3rd
WITH CATALINA JUST A LENGTH BEHIND HER

IT'S A BIG GAP BACK TO CIGARSHOP & TIGER DANCER
WHO APPEAR TO HAVE ALMOST CLIPPED HEELS
AS THE COLT WAS RIGHT ON THE FILLY'S TAIL COMING OUT OF THE TURN
NAUGHTY COLT! ~ BUT LUCKILY, A FALL WAS AVERTED!

EVEN FARTHER BACK STARK & RUFFIAN ARE HAVING
A RUCKUS OF THEIR OWN WITH SOME BUMPING GOING ON

STAYING OUT OF ALL THE TROUBLE IS JOHN HENRY
WHO SEEMS VERY CONTENTED REMAINING AT THE
VERY BACK OF THE FIELD ~ JUST MEANDERING ALONG
Image


AND DOWN THE STRETCH THEY COME


BLUNNY RUNNING WAY FASTER THAN THE ENERGIZER-BUNNY
MOVING POWERFULLY AND IN TOTAL COMMAND OF THE LEAD

~ BUT HOLD ONTO YOUR HATS FOLKS ~

Image


SUDDENLY THE CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET SCREAMING AS
SOMEONE IS FLYING UP THE RAIL ---- WITH INCREDIBLE SPEED

Image


IT IS PEEPTOAD WHO APPEARS TO HAVE DROPPED BACK
BEFORE, INTENTIONALLY, TO TAKE A 'BREATHER' AND LET
THE COLT ON THE LEAD USE UP HIS ENERGY ~

A VERY WISE STRATEGY MOVE
AS THE FILLY HAS COLLARED THE COLT ON THE LEAD
AND THE 2 ARE NOW ENGAGED IN
A MATCH RACE TO THE WIRE!

Image


BLUNNY ALL OUT ~ TRYING TO HOLD OFF THE FIERY FILLY ~
NECK & NECK ~ STRIDE FOR STRIDE ~ A WHISKER SEPARATES
THESE TWO AS IT'S 10 LENGTHS BACK TO DUSTY & CATALINA

HERE COMES THE WIRE ~ TOO CLOSE TO CALL ~ HOLD ALL TICKETS!

Image


OBJECTION LIGHTS FLASHING ON THE TOTE BOARD
STEWARDS LISTENING TO JOCKEY COMPLAINTS

FINALLY AFTER A LONG WAIT ~ THE PHOTO REVEALS

PEEPTOAD BY A KITTY WHISKER!

BLUNNY -- BRILLIANT IN DEFEAT!

DUSTY HOLDING ON FOR THE SHOW SPOT
