GOOD EVENING & WELCOME TO MIDWEEK MAYHEM
COMING TO YOU FROM DELIGHTFUL DELTA DOWNS

WITH THE LATE SCRATCHES OF EL PRADO & ROAMIN
DEFENDING CHAMP, TIGER DANCER, WILL HAVE
7 CALCULATING CONTRARY CHALLENGERS TRYING TO
PREVENT ANOTHER TENACIOUS TIGER DANCING TO VICTORY

THE ENERGETIC EIGHT ARE IN THE GATE
AND AWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY THEY GO!

OUT FOR A SHORT LEAD IS DUSTY WITH A FOURSOME AT HER TAIL
CIGARSHOP ~THUNDER CAT ~ BLUNNY + CATALINA

A 1/2 LENGTH BACK TO CRUZAN AS THE TWIN 'FELINE' FILLYS
BRINGIN UP THE REAR ~
RUFFIAN WHOSE 'INNER-CHEETAH' HAS NOT YET AWAKENED
AND THE TIGER WHOSE DANCE IS THE SLOW-STEPPIN-SLIDE

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

A DRAMATIC CHANGE AS DUSTY'S LEAD HAS VANISHED QUICKLY
NOW IT IS A FRISKY FILLY THUNDERING ON THE LEAD ~
THUNDER CAT WITH A HIGHLY CHARGED 'ENERGIZER-BLUNNY'
HOPPING RIGHT AT HER TAIL ....

IT'S 10 LENGTHS BACK TO CIGARSHOP, DUSTY, TIGER DANCER
AND ANOTHER SEVERAL LENGTHS BACK TO A TIRESOME TRIO
CATALINA ~ CRUZAN + RUFFIAN

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

THUNDER CAT BEGINNING TO LOOK LEG WEARY AS THE
'ENERGIZER-BLUNNY' TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THIS, HOPS
RIGHT ON BY TO TAKE COMMAND OF THE LEAD

DUSTY REGAINING HER COMPOSURE, IS ON THE MOVE AGAIN

BUT THERE GOES A FIERCE FILLY ON FIRE AS CATALINA
HAS SUDDENLY FLOWN FROM THE CLOUDS RIGHT PAST
EVERYONE IN HER WAY TO PASS THE 'BUNNY' ~
TAKING CLEAR COMMAND OF THE LEAD!

BLUNNY, THO A BIT SHAKEN BY THE BLURR GOING BY
CONTINUES MOVING ALONG STEADILY IN 2ND ~

THUNDER CAT TIRING WITH EVERY STRIDE IS STILL IN 3RD
WITH A LATE THREAT BY DEFENDING CHAMP, TIGER DANCER
FINALLY FINDING THE ROAR WITHIN, TO MOVE UP

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

CATALINA SHOWS THE WAY IN CLEAR COMMAND OF THE LEAD

THE 'ENERGIZER-BLUNNY' STILL HOPPIN RIGHT ALONG BUT
IS LOSING GROUND AS HIS 'BATTERY' SEEMS TO BE FAILING

THUNDER CAT IN 3RD, BUT LOSING GROUND

SUDDENLY IT'S DUSTY ON THE REBOUND PICKING UP HER SPEED
AND NOW HAS DUSTED THE PATH BEFORE HER TO MOVE UP
PASSING THUNDER CAT, TAKING OVER THE SHOW SPOT

BUT HOLD ON FOLKS ~ THE 'CAT-IN-COMMAND' AIN'T THRU YET
CAUSE THERE SHE GOES AGAIN!
LEAVING THE POOR 'NOT-SO-ENERGIZED-BLUNNY' IN HER WAKE
AS SHE HEADS TO THE WIRE ALL ALONE
IN FEROCIOUSLY FORMIDABLE FILLY FASHION

DUSTY HOLDS OFF THUNDER CAT FOR THE SHOW SPOT
THUNDER CAT SHAKES OFF TIGER DANCER TO STEAL 'THE PRECIOUS'

DEFENDING CHAMP, TIGER DANCER, OFF HER GAME TODAY
BUT SURE TO FIND THE 'TIGER-IN-HER-TANK' IN HER NEXT RACE
