GOOD AFTERNOON & WELCOME TO MIDWEEK MAYHEM
COMING TO YOU FROM GULFSTREAM PARK

OUR FEATURE EVENT IS THE 'FEBRUARY FAREWELL' STAKES

THE EXCITEMENT IS MOUNTING AS THUNDER CAT WILL RUN
FOR THE ELUSIVE 3-PEAT VICTORY WITH 8 CHALLENGERS
TRYING TO STOP THAT FROM HAPPENING

8 ARE IN THE GATE WAITING FOR CRUZAN TO SETTLE DOWN AS
THE COLT IS DOING HIS OWN VERSION OF RUFFIAN'S SHENANIGANS

FINALLY WITH SOME NECK PATS & PEPPERMINTS, HE HAS GIVEN IN

AND AWAAAAAAAY THEY GO IN THE 'FEBRUARY FAREWELL' STAKES

LIKE A ROCKET, THE 'NOT-SO-QUIET' REAL QUIET FLIES OUT
FOR THE EARLY LEAD FOLLOWED BY RUFFIAN, HOT ON HIS TAIL
ALONG WITH DUSTY ~ ALL 3 SHOWING GOOD EARLY SPEED

IT'S A FEW LENGTHS BACK TO A FRISKY FOURSOME
BLUNNY ~ THUNDER CAT ~ TIGER DANCER + CIGARSHOP

CRUZAN & CATALINA TRAIL THE FIELD IN THE EARLY GOING

OUT OF THE TURN THEY COME

REAL QUIET ~ RUFFIAN + BLUNNY NOW IN COMMAND OF THE LEAD
FOLLOWED CLOSELY BY CIGARSHOP & DUSTY

JUST ANOTHER 3 LENGTHS BACK ARE TIGER DANCER & THUNDER CAT
WITH CRUZAN & CATALINA STILL WITH A LOT OF GROUND TO MAKE UP

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

REAL QUIET SUDDENLY SPOOKED AT SOMETHING ON THE TRACK
LOSING MOMENTUM VERY QUICKLY ~ OPENING UP THE LEAD FOR
THE 'ENERGIZER BLUNNY' TO TAKE COMMAND

RUFFIAN ~ REAL QUIET ~ DUSTY + CIGARSHOP ARE NEXT
FOLLOWED BY THUNDER CAT CLOSING QUICKLY AND STILL IN
WITH A CHANCE OF A 3-PEAT VICTORY

TIGER DANCER IS NEXT BUT SLOWING DOWN BADLY

CATALINA & CRUZAN CONTINUE TO TRAIL

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

THE FULLY CHARGED 'ENERGIZER-BLUNNY' IN TOTAL COMMAND
WITH A TRIO OF RUFFIAN ~ REAL QUIET & CIGARSHOP IN HOT PURSUIT

THUNDER CAT JUST A LENGTH BACK

WITH THE WIRE JUST AHEAD, BLUNNY APPEARS TO HAVE THIS RACE
IN THE RECORD BOOK ... BUT HOLD ON FOLKS ~

THE CROWD IS SUDDENLY ON THEIR FEET SCREAMING LIKE BANSHEES
LOOKING AWAY FROM THE LEADER AS A DOUBLE THREAT DUO IS
FLYING UP THE MIDDLE OF THE TRACK GAINING GROUND FASTER
THAN A SPEEDING BULLET ~ ~ ~ BUT, NO --- IT'S NOT SUPERMAN!

ITS SUPURR-FILLYS ~ DUSTY & CATALINA PASSING ALL IN THEIR WAY

JUST WHEN THE RACE LOOKED WON BY THE 'ENERGIZER-BLUNNY'
THE 2 FIERCE FAST FILLYS HAVE PASSED HIM ON THE WAY TO VICTORY

DUSTY AND CATALINA WITH ONE FINAL SURGE HAVE DENIED BLUNNY
YET ANOTHER WIN EXACTLY AS HIS LAST SEVERAL RACES UNFOLDED

DUSTY FINALLY HAS SHAKEN LOOSE FROM CATALINA ON HER WAY
TO A STUNNING SPECTACULAR UPSET VICTORY GALLOP!

A VERY STUNNED SHOCKED BLUNNY HOLDS ON FOR THE SHOW SPOT

RUFFIAN MANAGES TO HOLD OFF REAL QUIET & STEAL 'THE PRECIOUS'

A STANDING OVATION FROM THE CROWD AS DUSTY FLIES PAST THE
WIRE LEAVING CATALINA A VERY FAR BACK BRIDESMAID

*Doing Her Version Of The Kabuki Dance Lighting Up The Tote Board

CATALINA = $83.20
*Also Showing Off Her Own Style Of Kabuki Dancing

BLUNNY = $62.80
*Being Passed At The Wire Is Beginning To Look Very Familiar

RUFFIAN = $43.20
