GOOD AFTERNOON & WELCOME TO SUPURR SATURDAY
WHERE WE ARE AT THE FAIR GROUNDS FOR RISEN-STAR DAY

OUR FEATURE EVENT WILL BE > ''CHINESE NEW YEAR'' STAKES
THIS YEAR, THEIR ANIMAL REPRESENTATIVE: THE DOG

WE HAVE A FINE FIELD OF 11 AS 10 OF THOSE WILL BE TRYING
TO STOP REAL QUIET FROM ADDING HIS NAME TO THE RECORD BOOK

HE WILL BE RUNNING FOR THAT ELUSIVE 3-PEAT (3-PETE) GLORY
(*OR ~ A FROSTED WHISKER)

10 ARE IN THE GATE PATIENTLY WAITING FOR DUSTY TO DECIDE
SHE IS GONNA GO IN! HERE COMES THE PEPPERMINTS TO BRIBE HER

YES INDEED ~ THAT WORKED & WE ARE READY TO RUN

AND THEY'RE OFF IN THE ''CHINESE NEW YEAR'' STAKES

EVERYONE AWAY IN GOOD ORDER EXCEPT FOR DUSTY WHO STALLED
SHE WILL HAVE A LOT OF GROUND TO MAKE UP

OUT FOR A SHORT EARLY LEAD ARE CRUZAN & CATALINA
FOLLOWED CLOSELY BY REAL QUIET ~ THUNDER CAT & TIGER DANCER

IT'S A TIGHTLY BUNCHED GROUP HEADING INTO THE TURN
AS PEEPTOAD & BLUNNY JOIN THE FRONT RUNNING FIVE

NOT SHOWING SPEED YET IS A TURTLE-TRIO OF:
RUFFIAN ~ CIGARSHOP ~ POST TIME MIKE & DUSTY

===== OUT OF THE TURN THEY COME =====

THINGS HAVE DRASTICALLY CHANGED AS IT IS NOW BLUNNY
LEADING THE WAY FOLLOWED CLOSELY BY REAL QUIET

CATALINA & PEEPTOAD TOGETHER RIGHT THERE ARE NEXT

IT'S A FEW LENGTHS BACK TO
THUNDER CAT ~ POST TIME MIKE & CIGARSHOP

TRAILING THE FIELD ARE
RUFFIAN ~ CRUZAN ~ TIGER DANCER & DUSTY

===== THEY'RE AT THE TOP OF THE STRETCH =====

THE ''ENERGIZER-BLUNNY'' SURE HAS HIS BATTERIES CHARGED
TODAY AS HE INCREASES HIS LEAD OVER REAL QUIET WHO SEES
HIS 3-PEAT CHANCES QUICKLY DISSOLVING

CATALINA PICKING UP HER SPEED IS NOW RIGHT AT REAL QUIET'S TAIL

IT'S ABOUT 5 LENGTHS BACK TO
THUNDER CAT ~ POST TIME MIKE AND PEEPTOAD

RUFFIAN IS NEXT BUT NO 'INNER CHEETAH' IN SIGHT

CIGARSHOP & TIGER DANCER DOING A SNAIL SAMBA ARE NEXT
CRUZAN IS MEANDERING ALONG WITH THAT DUO

AND WAY FAR BACK IS DUSTY WHO NOT ONLY STALLED WHEN
HER GATE OPENED ~ SHE THEN ALMOST WENT TO HER KNEES
AS SHE CAME OUT ~ A TROUBLED TRIP FOR THIS FILLY TODAY

====== DOWN THE STRETCH THEY COME =====

BLUNNY HAVING EVERYTHING GOING HIS WAY IN TOTAL COMMAND

REAL QUIET WITH A 3-PEAT ON THE LINE IS ALL OUT TRYING TO
CATCH THE RUNAWAY 'ENERGIZER-BLUNNY' ~ BUT NOT GAINING

CATALINA RIGHT THERE WITH REAL QUIET

IT'S A LONG WAY BACK TO THE REST

SUDDENLY A HUGE ROAR FROM THE CROWD HAS EVERYONE
UP ON THEIR FEET AS A BLURR IS MOVING UP THE RAIL FROM THE CLOUDS PASSING ALL IN THE WAY AT RECORD BREAKING FRACTIONS

WHO CAN IT BE? TIGER DANCER? RUFFIAN ? NOT DUSTY?
NO NO AND NO IS THE ANSWER!

IT IS CRUZAN FROM ANOTHER TIME ZONE PASSING ONE AFTER ANOTHER
AND NOW WITH THE WIRE JUST AHEAD HAS ZOOMED RIGHT ON BY
CATALINA, REAL QUIET ....... AND NOW EVEN BLUNNY AS THIS COLT
HAS GONE INTO 'WARP SPEED' CROSSING THE WIRE FIRST!

ONE OF THE MOST BREATHTAKING DISPLAYS OF DETERMINATION
AND PROFOUND POWER WE HAVE SEEN SO FAR THIS YEAR!

JUST THINK BACK TO ZENYATTA'S RACES WHEN THERE WAS NO WAY
SHE WOULD EVER COME FROM THAT FAR BACK TO WIN ~ YET SHE DID

THAT IS WHAT CRUZAN HAS JUST DONE ~ THE 'IMPOSSIBLE'

A STUNNED BLUNNY HAS A SHOCKED LOOK ON HIS FACE
WHEN VICTORY ALMOST SEEMED A 'SURE THING'

BUT IN HORSE RACING ~ IT AIN'T OVER TILL THAT STOUT LADY SINGS
AND TODAY SHE IS IN VORACIOUS VOICE FOR THIS COLT

REAL QUIET HOLDS ON FOR THE SHOW SPOT & A FROSTED WHISKER

CATALINA STEALS THE PRECIOUS
