Postby RUFFIAN » Thu Apr 05, 2018 2:23 pm

GOOD EVENING AND WELCOME TO MIDWEEK MAYHEM
COMING TO YOU FROM CHARLES TOWN RACETRACK
IN THE BODACIOUS BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS

OH DA CHARLES TOWN RACERS SING THIS SONG ~
DOO DAH ~ DOO DAH
THE RACES TONIGHT JUST 4 1/2 FURLONGS LONG
OH DA DOO DAH YAY

OUR FEATURE EVENT: THE 'APRIL SHOWERS' STAKES

IT IS ALSO A BOTS DAY: BATTLE OF THE SEXES
AND THO THE CARD IS ALL FILLYS / MARES ~ OMEN?
NOTHING IS A SURE THING IN RACING ~
ESPECIALLY BEING THE CHINESE YEAR OF THE DOG (COLTS)

DEFENDING CHAMP, REAL QUIET WILL HAVE 8 CHALLENGERS
TRYING TO PREVENT A REPEAT VICTORY GALLOP

NINE ARE LOOKIN FINE IN THE GATE AND WE ARE READY TO RUMBLE!

AWAY THEY GO IN THE 'APRIL SHOWERS' STAKES

OUT OF THE GATE LIKE A METEOR IS CRUZAN TAKING A HUGE
LEAD HEADING INTO THE TURN WITH 8 NOW PLAYING CATCH UP

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

IT DIDN'T TAKE LONG FOR CRUZAN'S LEAD TO VANISH AS
CIGARSHOP WITH AN AMAZING SURGE OF SPEED HAS TAKEN
OVER COMMAND FOLLOWED CLOSELY BY CRUZAN WHO IS
STILL RUNNING WITH GOOD ENERGY ~ JUST 3 LENGTHS BACK

IT'S ONLY 2 LENGTHS BACK TO A FIERCE FRISKY FILLY FOURSOME
THUNDER CAT ~ DUSTY ~ RUFFIAN & TIGER DANCER

A LONG WAY BACK ARE CATALINA ALONG WITH DEFENDING CHAMP,
REAL QUIET WHO HAS NOT YET HIT HIS BEST STRIDE

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

CIGARSHOP BEGINNING TO LOOK LEG WEARY AFTER SETTING
HUGE FRACTIONS, HAS A VERY HIGHLY CHARGED, 'ENERGIZER-BLUNNY'
HOT ON HIS HOOVES AS THESE 2 COLTS LEAD BY 5 LENGTHS

THUNDER CAT CONTINUES TO GAIN GROUND WITH EVERY STRIDE
TIGER DANCER IS RIGHT THERE

CRUZAN'S EARLY LIGHTNING SPEED HAS FADED QUICKLY NOW
RUNNING IN 5TH WITH RUFFIAN & REAL QUIET AT HIS TAIL

DUSTY & CATALINA SHOWING LITTLE ARE NOW WAY AT THE BACK

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

THE BATTLE OF THE SEXES IS LOOKING MORE LIKE THE
BATTLE OF THE BOYS AS CIGARSHOP & BLUNNY NECK & NECK
HEAD TO THE WIRE WITH A TENACIOUS THUNDER CAT TRYING
TO CATCH THEM AND STEAL A BOTS GLORY FOR THE FILLYS

TIGER DANCER IS NEXT, RIGHT THERE WITH CRUZAN
FOLLOWED BY RUFFIAN & DEFENDING CHAMP, REAL QUIET,
SEEING HIS CHANCES OF A REPEAT WIN, DISAPPEARING FAST

DUSTY & CATALINA DOING THE SNAIL-SAMBA CONTINUE TO TRAIL

HERE COMES THE WIRE ~ WAY TOO CLOSE TO CALL!
EITHER A RED HOT CIGAR OR A HIGHLY CHARGED BUNNY

PHOTO AND REPLAY BEING REVIEWED
BY A TINY NOSTRIL HAIR, CIGARSHOP PREVAILS OVER A VERY
ENERGIZED BLUNNY TO WIN BOTS GLORY IN A COLT-EXACTA

THUNDER CAT HOLDS ON FOR THE SHOW
TIGER DANCER STEALS THE PRECIOUS
