GOOD AFTERNOON & WELCOME TO
SUPURRR~SUNSHINE~MILLIONS~SATURDAY
AT SUPER SUNNY GULFSTREAM PARK



Image .... Image


TODAY'S FEATURE EVENT WILL BE THE
"WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE'' STAKES


Image


WITH THE SCRATCHES OF:
CRIMINAL TYPE -- RECUPERATING AT THE VET
STARK -- WHO MISSED HIS FLIGHT
OAKLAWN CAPPER -- OVERBOOKED AT THE STUD BARN

WE HAVE A FINE FIELD OF 10 THAT INCLUDES:
2 FORMER HOTY --- DUSTY & CATALINA
AND THE REIGNING HOTY --- REAL QUIET
+ DEFENDING CHAMPION -- CATALINA -- RUNS FOR A REPEAT WIN

THE HORSES ARE ALL LOADED & WE ARE READY TO RUN

AND AWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY THEY GO....

Image


LIKE 4 ROCKETS FIRING TO OUTER SPACE ~
SETTING BLISTERING EARLY FRACTIONS ~
IN A LINE ACROSS THE TRACK ARE
DUSTY ~ CATALINA ~ TIGER DANCER & POST TIME MIKE
WHO APPEARS TO BE VERY HAPPY SURROUNDED BY 3 FILLYS -- :D


Image


THESE 4 HAVE LEFT THE REST OF THE FIELD
RUNNING IN ANOTHER TIME ZONE IN THE EARLY GOING
BUT WE HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO ~ AND AS WE KNOW ~
ANYTHING CAN & OFTEN DOES HAPPEN ALONG THE WAY!

OUT OF THE TURN THEY COME

AS 3 OF THE 4 REMAIN IN FRONT
ONLY TIGER DANCER DID NOT HANDLE THE TURN WELL ~
PURRRHAPS DISTRACTED BY THE RAIL-BIRDS (Mmmmm -- TASTY TREAT)
LOSING GROUND & NOW DROPPING BACK

Image


CATALINA HAS TAKEN COMMAND OF THE LEAD BY 3 LENGTHS
POST TIME MIKE & DUSTY ~ NECK NECK ARE NEXT
THIS TRIO HAS LEFT THE REST OF THE FIELD PLAYING CATCH UP
AND THE ONES DOING THE BEST AT THAT CHALLENGE
ARE REAL QUIET & JOHN HENRY

Image


IT'S ANOTHER 8 LENGTHS BACK TO PEEPTOAD & BLUNNY
TRAILING SO FAR BACK -- THEY APPEAR TO BE HAVING
A MATCH RACE OF THEIR OWN = TO SEE WHO CAN RUN THE SLOWEST
TURTLES ~ OR ~ SNAILS?

Image Image


RUFFIAN & CIGARSHOP JUST MOSEYING ALONG IN NO HURRY
APPEARING TO HAVE FORGOTTEN THEY ARE EVEN IN A RACE!
APPARENTLY RUFFIAN'S 'INNER CHEETAH' IS BACK IN THE BARN
SNOOZING THE DAY AWAY!
AND CIGAR MAY HAVE PARTIED TOO MUCH IN THE DOG HOUSE

Image Image



THEY'RE AT THE TOP OF THE STRETCH


CATALINA LEADS THE WAY LOOKING VERY STRONG AS SHE
SEEMS TO BE ON HER WAY TO A REPEAT VICTORY GALLOP!
BUT HER LEAD IS DIMINISHING WITH EVERY STRIDE AS
DUSTY FOUND ANOTHER GEAR & IS NOW RIGHT AT HER TAIL


SUDDENLY THERE IS A HUGE ROAR FROM THE CROWD AS
SOMEONE IS FLYING UP THE RAIL PASSING ONE AFTER ANOTHER
..... IT'S BLUNNY

Image

WHO AWAKENED HIS 'ENERGIZER BUNNY' WITHIN
TO RUN A LOT FASTER THAN THE BUNNY HOP
AS HE NOW IS JUST A HALF LENGTH BEHIND DUSTY
WHO IS SHOWING NO SIGNS OF SLOWING DOWN
TRYING TO CATCH THE FAST FILLY IN FRONT


AND DOWN THE STRETCH THEY COME


CATALINA STILL IN FRONT.....
BUT SEEING HER LEAD QUICKLY DISAPPEARING
AS DUSTY & BLUNNY ARE BREATHING
RIGHT DOWN HER NECK ~

POST TIME MIKE -- STILL IN WITH A SHOT
IS ONLY A 1/2 LENGTH BEHIND BLUNNY
AND MOVING STRONGLY WITH EVERY STRIDE
REAL QUIET IS NOT OUT OF IT YET EITHER
WITH A CHANCE AT A PIECE OF THE PURSE

Image



THE WIRE LOOMS JUST AHEAD


CATALINA DESPERATELY TRYING TO HOLD ON
FOR A REPEAT VICTORY GALLOP
AND JUST AS IT SEEMS THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT SHE WILL DO ~
A FINAL SURGE OF SUPER SONIC SPEED
HAS PUT ANOTHER NOSE ON THE WIRE FIRST ~


**DUSTY HAS STOLEN THE GLORY ~ THE TROPHY & THE MONEY! -- Image

Image


CATALINA BRILLIANT IN DEFEAT ~ HOLDS ON FOR 2nd
