GOOD AFTERNOON & WELCOME TO MIDWEEK MAYHEM

TODAY WE ARE AT INDIANA GRAND

WITH THE SCRATCHES OF CATALINA & EL PRADO ~
DEFENDING CHAMP, TIGER DANCER, WILL HAVE 7 CHALLENGERS
TRYING TO PREVENT ANOTHER DANCING TIGER ROAR AT THE WIRE

WE WILL HAVE A MOMENT OF SILENCE TO HONOR THE MEMORY
OF THOSE LOST IN THE 9/11 TRAGEDY
NEVER FORGET

OUR FEATURE EVENT: GIVE PEACE A CHANCE

THE ENERGETIC EIGHT ARE IN THE GATE

LIKE TWIN ROCKETS ~ TIGER DANCER & CRUZAN EXPLODE OUT
OF THE GATE LEAVING THE REST OF THE RUNNERS BEWILDERED
AND BEFUDDLED, WONDERING IF THEIR OWN GATE MALFUNCTIONED!

THIS DAZZLING DUO LEAD BY 15 LENGTHS
AS THEY TAKE THE FIELD INTO THE TURN

OUT OF THE TURN THEY COME

NEITHER OF THE DUO HANDLED THE TURN WELL ALMOST
CLIPPING HEELS, AND CAUSING BOTH TO LOSE MOMENTUM

THIS NOW HAS OPENED UP THE WAY FOR 2 COLTS IN COMMAND
THE ENERGIZER-BLUNNY & CIGARSHOP LEAD THE WAY

CRUZAN & TIGER DANCER ARE NEXT
FOLLOWED BY THUNDER CAT, RUFFIAN, ROAMIN & DUSTY

THEY'RE AT THE TOP OF THE STRETCH

THE ENERGIZER-BLUNNY IS RUNNING ON A FULLY CHARGED BATTERY
HOPPING AWAY WITH EVERY STRIDE
LEAVING CIGARSHOP PLAYING 2nd FIDDLE

MEANWHILE, CRUZAN IS GAINING MOMENTUM PASSING CIGARSHOP
TO TAKE OVER THE 2nd SPOT BEHIND BLUNNY

ROAMIN IS ON THE MOVE PICKING UP HIS SPEED
AND JUST A LENGTH BEHIND CRUZAN

CIGARSHOP JUMPED A SHADOW
LOSING HIS EARLY HOT-TO-TROT ENERGY NOW RUNNING 4TH

WHERE ARE ALL THE FILLYS? NOWHERE TO BE SEEN!
GOOD THING IT'S NOT A BOTS DAY, EH!
SURE COULDA USED HELP FROM CATALINA & EL PRADO!

AND DOWN THE STRETCH THEY COME

THE ENERGIZER-BLUNNY SHOWING NO SIGNS OF SLOWIN DOWN
CRUZAN IS DOING HIS BEST TO CATCH THE RUNAWAY BUNNY
BUT IS NOT GAINING GROUND YET

ROAMIN ALSO TRYING TO MOVE UP BUT WITHOUT SUCCESS

SUDDENLY A ROAR FROM THE CROWD AS IT IS CIGARSHOP
WHO HAS LIT UP THE TRACK WITH A SMOKIN SURGE OF SPEED
PASSING ROAMIN ~ PASSING CRUZAN

THE WIRE LOOMS JUST AHEAD
CAN THE ELECTRIFYING ENERGIZER-BLUNNY HOLD ON TO THE LEAD
HE HAS HAD ALMOST FROM THE START

CAN THE RED HOT SMOKIN CIGARSHOP CATCH THE REIGNING HOTY

THE ANSWER CAME QUICKLY: NO HE CANNOT

BY A LONG NOSE AND LONGER WHISKERS ~ BLUNNY PREVAILS

CIGARSHOP WITH AN EXCITING CLOSING RUN IS 2ND
CRUZAN IS A STRONG 3RD
ROAMIN WILL HEAD TO THE SHIRE TO STEAL 'THE PRECIOUS'

AND WHERE ARE ALL THE FILLYS?
MEANDERING ALONG AS IF THEY NEVER REALIZED A RACE WAS ON

THIS WAS TRULY A COLOSSAL CONVINCING COLT MASSACRE!
