BOTH FILLYS ARE DANCIN -&- PRANCIN IN BACK OF THE GATE
AS THE COLTS ARE HAVING TROUBLE CONCENTRATING
ON STANDING STILL & BEHAVING!

FINALLY ~ WE ARE READY TO RUN

... AND AWAY THEY GO IN THE 'GUMBO GRANDIOSE' STAKES...

Image


BLUNNY OUT FOR A SHORT EARLY LEAD
AS HE IS JOINED QUICKLY AT THE FRONT BY
PEEPTOAD, POST TIME MIKE -&- STARK

THESE FOUR HAVE NOW SEPARATED THEMSELVES
FROM THE FIELD BY ABOUT 6 LENGTHS

RUFFIAN IS NEXT ~ FOLLOWED BY CIGARSHOP, CATALINA -&- DUSTY

REAL QUIET IS MOVING UP QUICKLY
AND TIGER DANCER TRAILS THE FIELD IN THE EARLY GOING


OUT OF THE TURN THEY COME


AND NOW THERE'S A NEW LEADER OF THE PACK AS
'STARK THE SHARK' HAS CHEWED UP THE FIELD
TO TAKE A 10 LENGTH LEAD OVER THE REST

Image
...(AFTER ALL THAT CHEWING .... A LITTLE FLOSS IS NEEDED) -- :lol:


PEEPTOAD -&- BLUNNY ARE NEXT
JUST A FEW LENGTHS IN FRONT OF
CIGARSHOP AND REAL QUIET

BACK ANOTHER 3 LENGTHS ARE
DUSTY, RUFFIAN -&- POST-TIME-MIKE

TIGER DANCER -&- CATALINA
HAVE YET TO SHOW ANY SPEED AT ALL
TRAILING THE FIELD BY 20+ LENGTHS


THEY'RE AT THE TOP OF THE STRETCH


BAD LUCK FOR STARK -- WHOSE LEAD WAS DRAMATICALLY
DIMINISHED AS HE SPOOKED AT SOMETHING ON THE TRACK
ALMOST CLIPPING HEELS WITH PEEPTOAD, AS THE FILLY HAD
GAINED GROUND QUICKLY ON THE FRONT RUNNING COLT!

Image


STARK IS BACKING UP BADLY NOW MAKING WAY FOR
BLUNNY -&- POST TIME MIKE TO MOVE UP
JUST IN BEHIND THE FIREY FAST FILLY AT THE FRONT


AND DOWN THE STRETCH THEY COME


PEEPTOAD INCREASING HER LEAD WITH EVERY STRIDE AS
THE FILLY IS SHOWING A DYNAMIC DIMENSION OF HER ABILITY
WE HAVE NOT SEEN SO FAR THIS SEASON

Image

SHE IS POURING IT ON NOW PLAYING HER OWN VERSION OF
CATCH-ME-IF-YOU-CAN ~
AS THE REST OF THE FIELD IS STRUGGLING TO KEEP UP --

Image


BUT SUDDENLY CIGARSHOP DECIDED TO GIVE THE FILLY A
CHALLENGE -- AS HE DOES HIS OWN IMPERSONATION OF
THE GREAT CHAMPION ~ CRYPTOCLEARANCE ~
KNOWN FOR HIS LATE RUNNING CLOSING KICK SHOCKERS!

Image


BLUNNY TOO -- IS NOT GIVING UP AND IS INCREASING HIS SPEED
GAINING ON CIGARSHOP AND NOW ONLY 3 LENGTHS BACK


SUDDENLY THERE IS A HUGE ROAR FROM THE CROWD
AS SOMEONE IS FLYING UP THE RAIL FROM THE CLOUDS

Image


OMG! ~ IT'S TIGER DANCER -- FROM SO FAR BACK
SHE WAS TRAILING THE FIELD BY AT LEAST 20 LENGTHS
AND NOW IS SPROUTING WINGS -- PASSING ONE AFTER ANOTHER
IN A DRAMATIC DISPLAY OF ''BIG CAT'' COURAGE!

THE FILLY HAS DANCED HER WAY RIGHT UP TO
THE THROAT LATCH OF CIGARSHOP --
AND IS MATCHING HIM STRIDE FOR STRIDE
AS THEY BOTH TRY TO CATCH
THE ALMIGHTY POWERFUL PEEPTOAD ... ON THE LEAD

Image



BUT THE FREAKY FAST FILLY AT THE FRONT,
NOW SENSING THE DANGEROUS DUO BEHIND HER ~
IS DETERMINED TO LET NOTHING STAND IN HER WAY
OF WALLOWING IN THE WINNER'S CIRCLE
AND HOPPING -&- PLAYING IN THE PENTHOUSE!

WITH YET ANOTHER DRAMATIC DISPLAY OF SPEED & POWER
PEEPTOAD IS LEAVING THE CHALLENGERS IN HER MIGHTY WAKE
LEAVING NO DOUBT AT ALL WHO WILL GAIN
THE 'GUMBO-GRANDISOSE GLORY' TODAY!!

Image Image



**HOLD ALL TICKETS FOLKS**
THERE IS A PHOTO FOR 2nd ~ WAY TOO CLOSE TO CALL....



Image


TIGER DANCER -&- CIGARSHOP DOING THEIR OWN VERSION
OF THE 4-STEP WALTZ TO THE WIRE

Image


AFTER WHAT SEEMED LIKE AN UNUSUALLY LONG DELAY ~
ANOTHER 'SHOCKER' LIGHTS UP THE TOTE BOARD AS WE NOW
SEE A VERY RARE DEAD HEAT FOR THE 2nd PLACE MONEY!!

Image

INDEED THE DANCING TIGER ROARED FROM LAST
TO CATCH THE COURAGEOUS COLT
AND SHARE THE RUNNER-UP HONORS!
IN THIS CASE ... IT TOOK 2 TO TANGO

Image


BLUNNY HOLDS ON FOR THE SHOW SPOT ~

AND ONCE AGAIN,
IT'S POST TIME MIKE
