**RESULTS**

GOOD AFTERNOON & WELCOME TO MIDWEEK MAYHEM
WHERE THE THISTLES ARE IN BLOOM


TODAY'S FEATURE EVENT WILL BE:
THE 'THISTLE BLOOM' SPRINT STAKES TO BE RUN AT 6 FURLONGS


Image


WITH THE SCRATCHES OF EL PRADO -&- REAL QUIET
WE HAVE JUST 7 TO CHALLENGE THE DUSTY ONE
RUNNING FOR A REPEAT VICTORY GALLOP

Image


7 ARE STANDING QUIETLY -- WAITING FOR CATALINA
TO DECIDE ITS TIME FOR HER TO GO INTO THE GATE ~

SHE IS BEING ONE FUSSY FILLY SO HERE COMES THE
PEPPERMINTS -AKA- 'BRIBERY' TO CONVINCE HER TO GO IN
~ INDEED BRIBERY DOES WORK AND SHE HAS GONE IN

AND AWAY THEY GO -- IN THE THISTLE BLOOM SPRINT....

Image


IT'S A FILLY DUO OF DEFENDING CHAMP DUSTY -&- THUNDER CAT
WITH A SHORT LEAD JUST AHEAD OF BLUNNY

THESE THREE HEAD INTO THE TURN
WITHOUT BREAKING ANY SPEEDING LIMITS

STARK ~ CIGARSHOP -&- CATALINA ARE JUST 3 LENGTHS BACK
AS RUFFIAN -&- TIGER DANCER ARE EVEN FARTHER BACK
RUNNING MORE LIKE DOMESTIC HOUSE CATS THAN JUNGLE PREDATORS

Image


OUT OF THE TURN THEY COME


WE SEE A NEW LEADER
HAS TAKEN TOTAL COMMAND OF THE RACE
BLUNNY -- HAS TUNED INTO HIS 'ENERGIZER' POWER
AND HAS TAKEN QUITE A HUGE LEAD OVER THE REST

Image


RUFFIAN SUDDENLY LET HER 'INNER CHEETAH' COME OUT TO PLAY
AND NOW IS RUNNING IN 2nd -- BUT AT LEAST 7 LENGTHS BACK

Image


THE REST OF THE FIELD IS SO FAR BACK
IT NOW LOOKS LIKE WE ARE WATCHING 2 SEPARATE RACES!

BLUNNY IS MAKING A MOCKERY OF THE RACE INCREASING HIS LEAD

BUT HOLD ON FOLKS ~ IT'S NOT A ONE HORSE RACE NOW
SUDDENLY IT'S STARK WHO HAS DECIDED
''ENUFF OF THIS ENERGIZER BLUNNY NONSENSE ~
IT'S TIME TO TURN THIS INTO A REAL RACE...''

Image

AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT THE REIGNING C0-HOTY IS DOING
SETTING EXPLOSIVE FRACTIONS TO CATCH UP TO
THE FRONT RUNNING 'ENERGIZER BLUNNY!'

NOW INSTEAD OF A RUNAWAY BUNNY WE HAVE A MATCH RACE
STARK WITH JUST A NOSTRIL HAIR IN FRONT OF BLUNNY NOW
WE COULD EVEN SEE A DEAD HEAT PHOTO FINISH!

Image


AND DOWN THE STRETCH THEY COME


A COLT DUO OF SPEED -&- POWER IN COMMAND OF THE LEAD
LEAVING RUFFIAN STRUGGLING FAR BACK TO KEEP UP

THE WIRE IS JUST AHEAD -- WHEN SUDDENLY THE CROWD
HAS EXPLODED WITH A BODACIOUS BANSHEE SCREAM!

COULD IT BE JUST FOR THE COLT DUO HEADING TO THE WIRE?

NOPE! INDEED SOMETHING ELSE HAS CAUSED THIS UPROAR!
WHAT COULD IT BE?

IT IS TIGER DANCER FROM THE CLOUDS
WHO HAS TURNED HER LETHARGIC 2-STEP
INTO A FIERCE FIREY FEROCIOUS 'QUIK-STEP'
FLYING UP THE MIDDLE OF THE TRACK

Image


BUT IS IT TOO LITTLE TOO LATE?

THE TIGER ANSWERED THAT QUESTION WITH A MIGHTY ROAR
CROSSING THE FINISH LINE WELL AHEAD OF THE COLT DUO
WHO APPEAR TO BE SLIGHTLY STUNNED AS THE FILLY FLEW BY!


Image

THIS WILL CERTAINLY BE ONE FOR THE RECORD BOOKS AS THIS
FILLY SET FURIOUSLY FAST FRACTIONS IN THE FINAL FURLONG!

$$-OFFICIAL ORDER OF FINISH-$$


TIGER DANCER ==== $94.30
*TRULY A SHOCKER -- WHICH IS WHAT MAKES RACES SO THRILLING!

STARK ======== $66.80
*AMAZING CLOSING RUN!

BLUNNY ======= $61.70
