GOOD AFTERNOON & WELCOME TO
SUPURRR~SATURDAY @ OAKLAWN PARK



OUR FEATURE EVENT: THE AVALANCHE STAKES
Image



WITH CRIMINAL TYPE AT EXTENDED STAY @ VET
AND OAKLAWN CAPPER SOMEHOW COULDN'T GET
OUT OF THE BREEDING SHED LONG ENOUGH TO RUN ~
WE NOW HAVE A TALENTED FIELD OF 11 READY TO RUN

THE CALL TO POST WAS JUST SOUNDED
AND THE POST PARADE IS ABOUT TO BEGIN
NOW LET'S MEET THE FIELD:


RUFFIAN ============== 5/2

CIGARSHOP =========== 15/1

POST TIME MIKE ========= 7/2

BLUNNY ============== 3/1

DUSTY (DC) =========== 9/5

PEEPTOAD ============ 6/1

REAL QUIET =========== 7/1

STARK =============== 9/2

TIGER DANCER ======== 20/1

JOHN HENRY ========== 10/1

CATALINA ============ 12/1



TEN ARE IN THE GATE STANDING QUIETLY
AS WE WAIT FOR PEEPTOAD TO DECIDE ITS TIME TO GO IN
THE FILLY IS ANTSY AND PRANCING AROUND LIKE A REINDEER

Image


SHE IS BEING EXAMINED AND APPEARS TO BE OK
JUST HAVING AN OBJECTION TO RUNNING FOR SOME REASON
THAT IS ONLY KNOWN TO HER ~
PERHAPS SHE SENSES A STORM IS ON THE WAY ~
SINCE MOST HORSES ARE FINELY TUNED IN TO WHAT IS COMING
THAT HUMANS NEVER KNOW UNTIL ITS THERE!

Image

PEPPERMINTS HAVE CONVINCED HER TO ENTER THE GATE
AND WE ARE READY TO RUN IN 'THE AVALANCHE STAKES'
(PERHAPS THE NAME OF THE RACE THAT RAISED FEARS?)


AND AWAAAAAAAAAAAAY THEY GO!

Image



BLUNNY AWAY LIKE A SPEEDING BULLET
WITH REAL QUIET JOINING HIM FOR THE LEAD
AND QUITE A BIG LEAD IT IS HEADING INTO THE TURN

Image
Image


IT'S ABOUT 10 LENGTHS BACK TO A TRIO OF
RUFFIAN RUNNING BETWEEN POST TIME MIKE & JOHN HENRY

ANOTHER FEW LENGTHS BACK ARE STARK & CIGARSHOP
FOLLOWED BY CATALINA AND THEN DUSTY
WHO HAS NOT FOUND HER BEST STRIDE YET IN THE EARLY GOING

WAY FAR BACK TRAILING THE FIELD ARE TIGER DANCER
AND
PEEPTOAD -- WHO APPEARS TO HAVE NO INTEREST IN RUNNING TODAY

Image


OUT OF THE TURN THEY COME
AND THE COMPLEXION OF THE RACE
HAS DRAMATICALLY CHANGED NOW!

CATALINA FROM THE CLOUDS HAS SPRUNG WINGS
AND HAS FLOWN BY EVERYONE EXCEPT BLUNNY
WHO IS NOW JUST A HALF LENGTH IN FRONT OF HER

Image


REAL QUIET IS JUST OFF OF CATALINA'S TAIL
POST TIME MIKE IS RIGHT THERE JUST A LENGTH BACK

RUFFIAN IS NEXT FOLLOWED BY JOHN HENRY

AND STILL TRAILING THE FIELD FAR BACK ARE
CIGARSHOP ~ DUSTY ~ STARK ~ TIGER DANCER & PEEPTOAD


THEY'RE AT THE TOP OF THE STRETCH


BLUNNY STILL TRYING TO HOLD ONTO THE LEAD AS
HE CAN HEAR THE HOOFBEATS RIGHT BEHIND HIM
AND THEN HE SEES THE TAIL OF CATALINA SAIL ON BY
AS SHE TAKES COMMAND OF THE LEAD

POST TIME MIKE & REAL QUIET NECK & NECK ARE RIGHT AT
THE TAIL OF BLUNNY WHO APPEARS TO BE TIRING

Image


AND DOWN THE STRETCH THEY COME


CATALINA MOVING POWERFULLY AS SHE EXTENDS HER
LEAD OVER THE 3 COLTS BEHIND HER

SUDDENLY THE CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET AS SOMEONE
IS FLYING UP THE MIDDLE OF THE TRACK

IT'S DEFENDING CHAMPION ..... DUSTY
WHO FINALLY GOT HER MOJO IN GEAR
AND IS PASSING ONE AFTER ANOTHER
NOW MOVING IN JUST BEHIND BLUNNY

Image


POST TIME MIKE AND REAL QUIET ARE STILL
RUNNING WELL AND NOT LOSING GROUND

IT'S QUITE A WAY BACK TO A LINE OF 5 ACROSS THE TRACK
STARK ~ CIGARSHOP ~ RUFFIAN ~ JOHN HENRY & TIGER DANCER

AND RUNNING ALL ALONE ABOUT 20 LENGTHS BACK OF THOSE 5
IS POOR LIL PEEPTOAD WHO TRIED TO TELL THEM AT THE GATE
''I'M JUST NOT INTO IT TODAY!''
BUT DID THEY LISTEN? HELL NO
Image


THE WIRE LOOMS UP AHEAD

WHEN SUDDENLY CATALINA DECIDED
THAT ''ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, TIME TO GET TUFF''

AND TUFF SHE IS -- AS SHE TURNS UP THE HEAT
THOSE OTHERS BEHIND HER, ARE DUE TO GET BEAT!

CATALINA ALL ALONE AT THE WIRE WINNING BY DAYLIGHT!
