GOOD AFTERNOON -&- WELCOME TO SUPURRR SATURDAY
DEEP IN CAJUN COUNTRY AT THE FAIR GROUNDS

OUR FEATURE EVENT TODAY IS -- THE ''MARIE LAVEAU'' STAKES
THE VOODOO QUEEN OF NEW ORLEANS



WE HAVE 11 IN THE GATE TO SEE WHOSE MAGIC WORKS BEST

DEFENDING CHAMPION, CATALINA HAS CONSULTED HER
CRYSTAL BALL AND TEA LEAVES TO DETERMINE
THE BEST STRATEGY TO WIN AGAIN!



TIGER DANCER HAD FLIGHT ISSUES AND WAS A LATE ENTRY
**SHE WILL BE SUBJECTED TO A PENALTY FINE

TEN ARE IN THE GATE WATCHING RUFFIAN WITH HER 'SHENANIGANS'
AGAIN GIVING THE HANDLER'S A HARD TIME AS SHE DANCES AND
PRANCES SHOWING NO SIGNS OF ENTERING THE GATE!


*APPARENTLY THE 'GATE TRAINING' SESSIONS HAVE DONE LITTLE!
HERE COMES THE BLINDFOLD AND SHE IS BACKED INTO THE GATE!

..... FINALLY WE ARE READY TO RUN

AND AWAAAY THEY GO IN THE MARIE LAVEAU STAKES....



SIX HAVE BURST OUT OF THE GATE TO FORM A LINE ACROSS
THE TRACK, TAKING FIELD INTO THE TURN

REAL QUIET ~ CIGARSHOP ~ BLUNNY ~ PEEPTOAD ~
POST-TIME-MIKE & DEFENDING CHAMP, CATALINA

THESE SIX ARE FOLLOWED BY THUNDER CAT & CRUZAN
AS DUSTY ~ TIGER DANCER & RUFFIAN TRAIL THE FIELD


~~OUT OF THE TURN THEY COME~~


CATALINA'S CRYSTAL BALL & TEA LEAVES SEEM TO BE WORKING AS
SHE HAS TAKEN A COMMANDING LEAD WITH REAL QUIET IN PURSUIT
BUT BEING 8 LENGTHS BACK, IS PLAYING A CATCH-UP GAME FOR NOW

IT'S ANOTHER SEVERAL LENGTHS BACK TO THUNDER CAT & DUSTY
WITH POST TIME MIKE RIGHT ON THEIR TAILS!

THAT TRIO IS ABOUT 7 LENGTHS IN FRONT OF BLUNNY -&- CRUZAN
FOLLOWED BY CIGARSHOP -&- PEEPTOAD

THE TRAILING TURTLE PACED BIG CAT DUO OF RUFFIAN -&- TIGER DANCER
ARE JUST MEANDERING ALL OVER THE TRACK VERY FAR BACK



IT APPEARS THAT BOTH SILLY FILLYS ARE MESMERIZED BY A FLOCK
OF WHITE-WINGED-DOVES IN THE INFIELD!


SO MUCH FOR 'BIRD-WATCHING TRAINING' BOTH HAD BEEN GIVEN!
WE SEE HOW WELL THAT IDEA WORKED!


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


CATALINA STILL IN COMMAND OF HER LEAD BUT REAL QUIET IS
MOUNTING A CHALLENGE NOW WITH A POWERFUL ENERGY
AND IS JUST A LENGTH BEHIND THE FAST FRISKY FILLY IN FRONT

THUNDER CAT IS STILL ABOUT 5 LENGTHS BEHIND THE DUO

DUSTY IS NEXT FOLLOWED CLOSELY BY BLUNNY -&- CIGARSHOP

CRUZAN ~ POST TIME MIKE ~ PEEPTOAD -&- RUFFIAN ARE FAR BACK

BUT EVEN FARTHER BACK IS A DAWDLING DANCING TIGER WITH A
HUGE AMOUNT OF GROUND TO MAKE UP FOR ANY CHANCE AT $$$


~~AND DOWN THE STRETCH THEY COME~~


CATALINA IN TOTAL COMMAND AS SHE HAS BEEN FROM THE START
THE FILLY IS RUNNING WITH DETERMINATION, TENACITY
AND DESIRE TO WIN -- AS REAL QUIET HAS OTHER PLANS
RUNNING RIGHT AT THE NECK OF THE FIERCE FILLY IN FRONT!

WE HAVE A MATCH RACE NOW AS THE CROWD GOES WILD!

BUT SUDDENLY THE ROAR FROM THE CROWD HAS EYES LOOKING
BACK UP THE TRACK AS SOMEONE IS FLYING UP THE RAIL AT
LIGHTNING SPEED, WITH WHAT LOOKS LIKE LAVENDER SILKS?



NO! IT CANNOT BE! BUT YES! ... IT IS!
INDEED.... IT'S TIGER DANCER FROM THE CLOUDS ~ SO FAR BACK
ALMOST IN ANOTHER TIME ZONE -- ROARING PAST ONE AFTER ANOTHER



BUT WILL IT BE TOO LITTLE TOO LATE TO PULL A 'ZENYATTA' MOVE?

BACK AT THE FRONT OF THE FIELD, CATALINA HAS DECIDED SHE HAS
HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF THAT PESKY COLT CHASING HER!
WITH ONE FINAL SURGE OF SUPURRR SONIC SPEED
THE FAB FILLY HAS PUT REAL QUIET IN HIS PLACE -- AS IN => 2nd!



TIGER DANCER, HAVING WATCHED THE FLOCK OF BIRDS CLOSELY
DECIDED TO TRY 'FLYING' WHICH INCREDIBLY LANDS HER IN 3rd!
WHAT AN INCREDIBLE RUN THAT WAS TO WATCH!
HER PREVIOUS 'FLIGHT ISSUES' IRONICALLY NOW WORKED!

THUNDER CAT STEALS 'THE PRECIOUS'
MUCH TO THE CHAGRIN OF BLUNNY WHO SEEMED TO THINK HE
WOULD ONCE AGAIN BE IN POSSESSION OF THE RING
BUT HIS ENERGIZER-BUNNY BATTERY PACK TODAY = ONLY HALF CHARGED!

CONGRATS TO CATALINA ON A DYNAMIC DETERMINED EFFORT
TO REPEAT HER LAST VICTORY AND NEXT TIME RUNS FOR THE 3-PEAT
