CONGRATS TO THE DANCING TIGER WHO ROARED OUT OF
THE GATE WITH SHOCKING SUPURRRR SONIC SPEED
LEAVING THE REST OF THE RUNNERS TO DANCE IN HER DUST!
THE EYE OF THE TIGER WAS SHARP & CLEAR GATE TO WIRE

IT MAY JUST BE A COINKYDINK, THAT THE TIGER'S LAIR IS
IN THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH AND SHE CHOOSES TO RUN
FOR THE REPEAT AT THE (ROCKY) MOUNTAINEER (HIGH)

VENUE: MOUNTAINEER

POST TIME: 7 PM EDT

SCOREKEEPER
CALCULATOR QUEEN, CATALINA, MAY BE BUSY GETTING
READY FOR A MAJOR TRIP SOON SO IF SHE IS UNABLE TO
SCORE ON WEDNESDAY, THE RUFFINATOR WILL ROAR ON IN
(THOSE CLAWS ARE NOT EASY WORKING A CALCULATOR!)

*ADDITIONALLY, AN EVENING CARD MEANS THAT THE RACE CALL
WILL NOT BE VISIBLE UNTIL SOMETIME ON THURSDAY

RULES ARE MEANT TO HELP
GUIDELINES OF WHAT TO DO
EVERY CONTEST HAS EM
SO U DON'T ERRR & THEN D.Q. :cry:

WELCOME TO A DREARY, DISMAL, DISGRUNTLED & DEPRESSING DAY
THAT COULDA ~ SHOULDA ~ WOULDA BEEN AN EXCITING EVENT

THE ORIGINAL VENUE CHOICE FOR MIDWEEK MAYHEM WAS
TO BE INDIANA GRAND / 4 STAKES ~ BIG FIELDS AND THRILLS ~ ~ ~
BUT THEN ~ THE EXTENDED WEATHER FORECAST SAID: 60% RAIN

POOR TIGER DANCER CAUGHT BETWEEN A ROCK ~ BOULDER &
EXCRUCIATING DECISION = TAKE A CHANCE OR CHANGE VENUE

UNFORTUNATELY THE DECISION PROVED TO BE WRONG
PROVING ONCE AGAIN ~ HINDSIGHT = 20/20

INDIANA GRAND RAN WITH EXCITING STAKES & FULL FIELDS

MOUNTAINEER RAN WITH SCRATCHES GALORE, NO MONEY PAID
FOR SHOW IN 3 OF 9 RACES, PATHETIC PAY OUTS AND A SIGH
OF RELIEF WHEN IT WAS FINALLY OVER

ALONG WITH THAT DOWNER WE WERE MISSING STARK & CIGARSHOP
WHO OPTED OUT IN EXCHANGE FOR R&R FUN & FROLIC ELSEWHERE

OUT OF THE 7 WHO ENTERED THE GATE ~ ONLY 1 ACTUALLY RAN
THE OTHER SIX WERE COMPETING WITH THE SNAILS & TURTLES

DEFENDING CHAMP ~ TIGER DANCER = DEFINITELY NOT DANCING
AFTER DISCOVERING INDIANA GRAND ACTUALLY WASN'T CANCELLED ~
LOST ALL INCENTIVE TO RUN, AND INSTEAD, WAS REWARDED
WITH ANOTHER 'YO-YO-MAMA' TROPHY (Last After Previous Win)
AND THE KEY TO THE CAT HOUSE WHERE CATNIP, MEOW MIX
AND CHIPPENDALES MAY HELP TO DROWN OUT THE MM MEMORY

FINISHING JUST AHEAD OF THE ''NOT-DANCING TIGER''
WAS DUSTY WHO GOT A SEVERE CASE OF 'SCRATCHES'
RESULTING IN A LACK LUSTER EFFORT

RUFFIAN DISCOVERED HER 'INNER CHEETAH' WAS STILL BACK
AT THE BARN WALLOWING IN CHEETAH LIKE DEPRESSION AFTER
SEEING ALL THE FELINE PAY OUTS AT INDIANA GRAND!

CATALINA STARTED OUT OK BUT FAILED TO FIND ANY DESIRE
TO RUN IN THE FINAL FURLONGS

A PHOTO FINISH OF BLUNNY & THUNDER CAT REVEALED
A DEAD HEAT FOR 2nd ~ JUST NOT AN IMPRESSIVE ONE

AND THEN THERE WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO DID NOT LET
THE TRACK CHOICE INFLUENCE A DECENT EFFORT ~
MISSING JUST 1 OF 9 IN THE MONEY ~ JUST NOT A LOT OF $$

HERE IS THE OFFICIAL ORDER OF FINISH ON A DAY BEST LEFT
OUT OF OUR MEMORIES BUT THEN, THAT'S RACING ISN'T IT?
WIN SOME ~ LOSE SOME & CHOOSE TO FORGET SOME!

REAL QUIET = $50.40
*NOT LOW ENOUGH FOR A 'LOST IN THE FOG' NOMINATION
THAT DUBIOUS 'HONOR' SO FAR BELONGS TO STARK WITH
AN IMPRESSIVE $37.50 WIN ON MARCH 15TH (IDES OF MARCH!)

DH) = THUNDER CAT // BLUNNY = $22.40
*Duplicate BridesMaid Gowns Awarded

CATALINA = $21
*Barely Paid For The Flower Bouquet!

RUFFIAN = $17
*Steals The Precious At Bargain Basement Sale

DUSTY = $15.20
*Enough For A Can Of Pledge

(DC) TIGER DANCER = $12
*Yo-Yo-Mama Trophy, Key To Cat House
And A Box Of Puffs To Dry The Tears!

WE NOW BID YOU A GOOD EVENING WHICH HAS TO BE
BETTER THAN THE AFTERNOON SHENANIGANS!
MAY THE PURRRRRRRRR BE WITH YOU
