THE HORSES ARE ALL LOADED & STANDING QUIETLY JUST
WAITING FOR STARK TO STOP ACTING UP LIKE A NAUGHTY BOY!
HE IS SURE FEELING HIS OATS TODAY!
BUT WHO KNOWS IF THAT'S A GOOD OR BAD SIGN?

FINALLY STARK HAS BEEN PERSUADED TO GO INTO HIS GATE

AND THEY'RE OFF IN THE 'JOHN HENRY BIRTHDAY' STAKES

IT'S A QUARTET OUT FOR A SHORT EARLY LEAD
WITH RATHER SLOW OPENING FRACTIONS

DEFENDING CHAMP BLUNNY ~ REAL QUIET ~ STARK & CATALINA

TIGER DANCER IS RIGHT THERE WITH THE FRONT FOURSOME

IT'S A FEW LENGTHS BACK TO DUSTY, PEEPTOAD & JOHN HENRY

AND TRAILING THE FIELD IN THE EARLY GOING WE FIND
POST TIME MIKE ~ CIGARSHOP & RUFFIAN

OUT OF THE TURN THEY COME
SUDDENLY THE CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET WITH A DEAFENING ROAR
AS THE FOUR IN FRONT ~ ARE IN FRONT NO MORE!

FROM THE CLOUDS RUFFIAN & CIGARSHOP HAVE SPROUTED
INVISIBLE WINGS TO FLY FROM LAST TO FIRST IN WHAT SEEMED
LIKE A HEARTBEAT TO THOSE WATCHING!

INCREDIBLE ACCELERATION & POWER BY BOTH WHO NOW
HAVE TAKEN TOTAL COMMAND OF A HUGE LEAD!

IT'S AT LEAST 15 LENGTHS BACK TO REAL QUIET & BLUNNY

DUSTY & JOHN HENRY ARE ANOTHER FEW LENGTHS BACK
FOLLOWED BY STARK & CATALINA

TRAILING THE FIELD ARE TIGER DANCER & POST TIME MIKE
WHO ARE JUST MEANDERING ALONG SO FAR

THEY'RE AT THE TOP OF THE STRETCH

O NO! RUFFIAN SUDDENLY SPOOKED AT SOMETHING ON THE
TRACK ~ VEERING SHARPLY TO HER LEFT ALMOST COLLIDING
WITH CIGARSHOP WHO MANAGED TO ACCELERATE AND AVOID
WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN A VERY BAD INCIDENT!

SHE IS DROPPING BACK QUICKLY NOW AND MAY HAVE HURT
HERSELF IF SHE HAD STEPPED ON WHATEVER IT WAS SHE SAW
THAT MADE HER VEER SO SHARPLY & SO SUDDENLY

AN UNLUCKY BREAK FOR HER BUT VERY ADVANTAGEOUS FOR
CIGARSHOP WHO INHERITS THE LEAD ALL TO HIMSELF

AND DOWN THE STRETCH THEY COME

A CONFIDENT CIGARSHOP ALONE ON THE LEAD MOVING STRONGLY

REAL QUIET IS GAINING GROUND QUICKLY LEAVING BLUNNY
IN THE WAKE OF HIS SUDDEN ACCELERATION

RUFFIAN SEEMS TO HAVE REGAINED HER COMPOSURE AND
SEEMS TO NOT BE SUFFERING ANY INJURY OR PAIN FROM THE
UNFORTUNATE INCIDENT EARLIER ~ MUCH TO THE RELIEF OF
HER CONNECTIONS WHO HAD ALREADY RUN DOWN TO THE RAIL

SHE IS NOW RUNNING STRIDE FOR STRIDE WITH BLUNNY
TUCKED IN JUST BEHIND REAL QUIET BUT NONE OF THEM
ARE GAINING GROUND ON THE SPEED DEMON IN THE LEAD!

CIGARSHOP HAVING EVERYTHING GO HIS WAY UNLIKE
THOSE RUNNING BEHIND HIM!

BUT HOLD ON FOLKS!
THE CROWD IS SUDDENLY GOING WILD ~ SCREAMING LIKE BANSHEES
WHAT CAN BE CAUSING THIS TREMENDOUS UPROAR?

LIKE TWIN TORNADOES REMOVING EVERYTHING IN THEIR PATH ~
DUSTY & POST TIME MIKE HAVE STORMED FROM WAY BACK
PASSING EVERYONE AHEAD OF THEM AND NOW HAVE MOVED
UP JUST IN BEHIND THE FRONT RUNNING CIGARSHOP!

JUST WHEN CIGARSHOP SEEMED LIKE A 'SURE THING WINNER' ~
WE ALL KNOW HOW THAT GOES AND NOW WE SEE THE PROOF
OF THE SAYING ~

IT AIN'T OVER TILL THE STOUT LADY SINGS

A COURAGEOUS CIGARSHOP ALL OUT & DETERMINED TO NOT GIVE IN

BUT DUSTY HAS SOMETHING ELSE IN MIND AS SHE DIGS DEEP ~
REVVING UP HER INNER FILLY MOJO TO SHOW THAT COLT HOW
SIZE & GENDER DON'T MATTER WHEN SPEED & CLASS PREVAIL!

AND PREVAIL SHE DOES AS SHE CONQUERS THAT COLT IN THE
FINAL STRIDES PUTTING HER PRETTY FILLY NOSE ON THE WIRE
LEAVING THREE OUTCLASSED COLTS IN HER MIGHTY WAKE!

A STUNNED, SHOCKED CIGARSHOP HOLDS ON FOR 2ND
A TREMENDOUS CLOSING POWER RUN BY POST TIME MIKE
REWARDS HIM WITH THE SHOW SPOT MONEY
AS REAL QUIET STEALS THE PRECIOUS

*REPEATS A STAY IN THE DOG HOUSE WITH BOOZE & BABES
SO MAYBE HE HAD A SECRET PLAN ALL ALONG?

MAY THE PURRRRRRRRR BE WITH YOU
