**RESULTS**

Image
GOOD AFTERNOON -&- WELCOME TO
SUPURRR SATURDAY IN CAJUN COUNTRY
AT THE FAIR GROUNDS RACE TRACK


OUR FEATURE EVENT TODAY: THE LUCKY 13 STAKES
Image

THUNDER CAT WILL HAVE 10 CHALLENGERS
WHO WILL TRY TO PREVENT A REPEAT VICTORY
RUN BY THIS FAB FILLY
Image


THE HORSES ARE ALL STANDING QUIETLY IN THEIR GATE
EXCEPT FOR POST TIME MIKE -&- CIGARSHOP
WHO APPEAR TO HAVE SOME KIND OF SQUABBLE GOIN ON
AS EACH COLT TRIED TO GET INTO THE GATE NEXT TO PEEPTOAD
UNDERSTANDABLE - AS SHE IS A VERY STRIKINGLY BEAUTIFUL FILLY

WITH STRONG DETERMINATION BY GATE CREW + PEPPERMINTS
BOTH COLTS FINALLY CONCEDED AND WENT INTO THEIR GATE

FINALLY WE ARE READY TO RUN IN THE 'LUCKY 13' STAKES


~~AND AWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY THEY GO.....
Image


SOMEONE LET THE 'CATS' OUTTA DA BAG AS THE GATES OPENED!
Image


LIKE TWIN JUNGLE CATS SPOTTING PREY IN THE DISTANCE,
THE CHEETAH ~ aka: RUFFIAN -&- THE DANCING TIGER TAKE
A COMMANDING LEAD OVER THE FIELD, HEADING INTO THE TURN

IT'S AT LEAST 20 LENGTHS BACK
TO BLUNNY -&- THUNDER CAT



~ OUT OF THE TURN THEY COME ~


IT IS NOW -- THE 'CHEETAH' -- ALONE ON THE LEAD
AS RUFFIAN --- WITHOUT WARNING,
ROARED WITH A SUDDEN SURGE OF SUPURR-SONIC SPEED
LEAVING TIGER DANCER IN HER MIGHTY WAKE
Image Image


THE FIERCE FILLY IS SO FAR IN FRONT OF THE REST THAT
IT WILL TAKE PEGASUS IN FLIGHT TO CATCH HER!
Image


IT'S NOW AT LEAST 20+ LENGTHS BACK
TO BLUNNY ~ THUNDER CAT AND TIGER DANCER

ANOTHER TEN LENGTHS BACK WE SEE
REAL QUIET ~ CRUZAN ~ DUSTY ~ PEEPTOAD

AND RUNNING IN ANOTHER TIME ZONE ARE:
POST TIME MIKE ~ CATALINA ~ CIGARSHOP
WHO APPEAR TO BE DOING AN IMPERSONATION
OF THE TORTOISE -&- HARE SCENARIO

Image


GIVING THE FRONT RUNNERS
JUST ENOUGH OF A LEAD
TO MAKE THEM FEEL OVER CONFIDENT
AND MAYBE SLOW DOWN ENOUGH TO CATCH


~ THEY'RE AT THE TOP OF THE STRETCH ~


THE RACE HAS TURNED INTO A ONE-FILLY EXHIBITION
AS RUFFIAN MUST HAVE GIVEN HER ''INNER CHEETAH''
A POWERFUL BREAKFAST OF CHEETAH-CHOW
AND CATNIP LACED WITH CAJUN CAYENNE PEPPER!
Image Image


WE NOW HAVE 10 RUNNING
ONLY FOR A PIECE OF THE PURSE

BLUNNY -&- THUNDER CAT ARE
NECK -&- NECK ~ STRIDE FOR STRIDE
BUT AT LEAST 23+ LENGTHS FAR BACK,
FOLLOWED BY TIGER DANCER

IT'S ANOTHER FEW LENGTHS BACK TO
REAL QUIET -&- CATALINA
FOLLOWED BY DUSTY ~ CRUZAN ~ PEEPTOAD

STILL RUNNING ~ OR MORE LIKE MEANDERING,
ARE CIGARSHOP AND POST TIME MIKE ...
WHO HAVE SHOWN ABSOLUTELY NO SPEED
OR INTEREST IN RUNNING
OTHER THAN CHASING PEEPTOAD'S TAIL -- :o



~ AND DOWN THE STRETCH THEY COME ~


RUFFIAN IS NOW DOING HER VERSION OF SECRETARIAT'S BELMONT!
SHE HAS LEFT THE REST JUST PLAYING ~ 'CATCH HER IF THEY CAN'
BUT NOBODY IS EVEN CLOSE

BLUNNY HAS RE-CHARGED HIS ENERGIZER BATTERIES
AND APPEARS TO BE GAINING ON THE
FRONT RUNNING FIERCELY FAST FILLY -- BUT
IS STILL WAY TOO FAR BACK TO CATCH HER
Image


DEFENDING CHAMP -- THUNDER CAT, FULL OF RUN IS NEXT
FOLLOWED BY A DETERMINED TIGER DANCER
STILL WITH A CHANCE OF 2nd / 3rd / 4th PLACE MONEY ~

REAL QUIET -&- CATALINA ARE ANOTHER 10 LENGTHS BACK
CRUZAN AND PEEPTOAD ~ A FEW MORE LENGTHS BEHIND THAT DUO

AND BACK IN SNAIL -&- TURTLE ZONE
ARE CIGARSHOP + POST TIME MIKE
Image


~~ AT THE WIRE THERE IS ONLY ONE ~~

CROSSING THE FINISH LINE, SHE IS GREETED
BY A HUGE ROAR AND STANDING OVATION BY THE CROWD
IN APPRECIATION OF A DYNAMIC DISPLAY
OF POWER ~ SPEED -&- A REMINDER OF WHY
THE CHEETAH IS CALLED THE 'FASTEST LAND ANIMAL ON EARTH'
Image Image
