SUPURRR SATURDAY RESULTS ~ 9/2 (DEL MAR)

Postby RUFFIAN » Mon Sep 04, 2017 12:47 pm

GOOD AFTERNOON & WELCOME TO
SUPURRR SATURDAY AT DEL MAR
WHERE THE SURF MEETS THE TURF
AND 'HORSE-POWER' IS NOT A CAR!

SEPTEMBER IS 'HAPPY CAT' MONTH
~ SO TO HONOR THAT TRADITION ~

OUR FEATURE EVENT WILL BE: THE HAPPY CAT STAKES (Not Steaks!)

THUNDER CAT WILL HAVE 8 CHALLENGERS TRYING TO PREVENT
A REPEAT VICTORY GALLOP

LATE SCRATCHES
*PEEPTOAD = TRAINER OPTED TO RUN ELSEWHERE
*STARK = TAKING SOME R & R TIME OFF TO REFRESH
*EL PRADO = WHO KNOWS
*OAKLAWN CAPPER = BUSY IN THE BREEDING SHED

THE HORSES ARE ALL IN THE GATE JUST WAITING FOR
POST TIME MIKE TO SETTLE DOWN AS HE IS FROLICKING
ABOUT WITH DUSTY PREFERRING HER TO THE GATE!

A FEW PEPPERMINTS CONVINCED THE COLT TO CHOOSE
FOOD OVER FILLY AND NOW HE HAS GONE IN

AND AWAAAAAAAAY THEY GO IN THE ''HAPPY CAT'' STAKES

ROARING OUT OF THE GATE, RUFFIAN HAS TURNED HER
'INNER CHEETAH' LOOSE EARLY ON TO TAKE A GIGANTIC LEAD
OF AT LEAST 20 LENGTHS WITH FEROCIOUSLY FAST FRACTIONS!

THIS FIERCE FIRERY FILLY MAY JUST BE TOO FAR AHEAD TO CATCH!

HEADING INTO THE TURN, RUFFIAN HAS EXTENDED HER LEAD
EVEN MORE AS THE REST OF THE FIELD ARE PLAYING CATCH UP

OUT OF THE TURN THEY COME AS NOW WE SEE CATALINA
THE MAIN CHALLENGER BUT STILL VERY FAR BEHIND THE
FRONT RUNNING FRISKY FAST FILLY ON THE LEAD

IT'S 10 LENGTHS BEHIND CATALINA TO CIGARSHOP & BLUNNY

5 LENGTHS BACK TO DEFENDING CHAMP THUNDER CAT ~
DUSTY ~ POST TIME MIKE & REAL QUIET

TIGER DANCER TRAILING VERY FAR BACK HAS NOT YET FOUND
HER OWN 'ROAR' & SEEMS VERY DISTRACTED BY THE
FLOCK OF SEAGULLS FLUTTERING IN THE INFIELD ~

THEY'RE AT THE TOP OF THE STRETCH

RUFFIAN IS MAKING A MOCKERY OF THE RACE SO FAR & NOW
TAKING A SHORT BREATHER BEFORE THE HOME STRETCH
SLOWING HER SPEED DOWN JUST A LITTLE BIT WHICH ALSO
OPENS THE OPPORTUNITY FOR CATALINA TO GAIN GROUND
ON THE FIERCELY FAST FRONT RUNNING FILLY

BLUNNY SUDDENLY DISCOVERED HIS 'ENERGIZER BUNNY' MOJO
~ QUICKLY GAINING ON CATALINA & NOW RIGHT AT HER TAIL!

RUFFIAN PLAYING HER OWN VERSION OF 'CAT ME IF U CAN'
AND SO FAR THE ONLY ONES WHO MIGHT BE ABLE TO EVEN
GET CLOSE TO HER ARE CATALINA & BLUNNY!

THE REST ARE RUNNING FOR ''THE PRECIOUS'' TROPHY

AND DOWN THE STRETCH THEY COME

THE ''ENERGIZER~BLUNNY'' HAS MANAGED TO OVERTAKE CATALINA
AND NOW HAS HIS COURAGEOUS COLT EYES FOCUSED ON
THE HOT PINK SILKS OF THE FREAKY FAST FILLY IN FRONT

RUFFIAN'S LEAD NOW HAS BEEN CUT TO ONLY 7 LENGTHS
AS BLUNNY & CATALINA ARE TURNING UP THE HEAT

THE WIRE LOOMS JUST UP AHEAD AS RUFFIAN GLANCES
BACK TO SEE THE DUO CATCHING UP QUICKLY AND NOW
APPEARS TO BE THINKING ~
''TIME TO LET THE 'CHEETAH' SHOW EM
WHO DESERVES THE 'HAPPY CAT' TROPHY''

AND JUST AS BLUNNY & CATALINA HAD OPTIMISTIC HOPE
THEY COULD OVERTAKE THE FIERCE FILLY IN FRONT ~

RUFFIAN GAVE HER 'INNER CHEETAH' A NUDGE AND AWAY
SHE ROARED TO THE WIRE LEAVING NO DOUBT IN ANYONE'S
MIND OF WHO WOULD CELEBRATE IN THE PENTHOUSE!

A DYNAMIC DISPLAY OF POWER GATE TO WIRE!

OBJECTION LIGHTS FLASHING FOR 2ND / 3RD = CATALINA / BLUNNY
STEWARDS EXAMINING THE REPLAY WHERE IT APPEARS THAT
BLUNNY VEERED IN A BIT ON CATALINA NEARING THE WIRE

STEWARDS DETERMINED THE OBJECTION = NOT VALID

OFFICIAL ORDER OF FINISH

RUFFIAN = $130.60
*Purrrrfect & Purrrfound Gate To Wire
*Also Earns A 'Yo-Yo-Mama' Trophy (A Win Following A Last Place Finish)

BLUNNY = $100.70
*Decent 1st Half & Incredible Closing Run To Pass Catalina by a Whisker!

CATALINA = $99.50 (OUCH!)
*Looked Like A Sure-Fire ''Bridesmaid'' ~ Until The Final Strides!

REAL QUIET = $55
*Steals The Precious
*Lacked Early Speed ~ Improved Greatly In Home Stretch

TIGER DANCER = $44.60
