WITH THE LATE SCRATCHES OF: PEEPTOAD, CIGARSHOP, STARK
WE WILL HAVE A FINE FIELD OF 10
AS 9 CHALLENGE CATALINA -- THE DEFENDING CHAMPION,
    WHO IS ON FIRE LATELY
AFTER TAKING A WELL EARNED R-&-R BREAK FROM RACING

9 ARE STANDING CALMLY WAITING FOR BLUNNY TO SETTLE DOWN
THE COLT IS ACTING LIKE HE'S GOT A BURRR UNDER HIS SADDLE!
           


FINALLY SOME SOOTHING WORDS WHISPERED IN HIS EAR ALONG
    WITH SOME TASTY PEPPERMINTS HAVE CONVINCED THE     
        CANTANKEROUS COLT TO GO ON INTO HIS GATE!


AND AWAAAAAAAAAAAY THEY GO IN THE 'BIG SANDY' STAKES ....

           


A FRISKY FOURSOME HEAD OUT FOR AN EARLY LEAD
RUFFIAN ~ KY BLUE CATS ~ DUSTY -&- TIGER DANCER

BUT THAT LEAD IS QUICKLY SHUT DOWN AS POST TIME MIKE
HAS SAILED RIGHT ON BY THOSE 4 WITH FIERCE FRACTIONS!
THESE 5 HEAD INTO THE TURN LEADING THE REST BY DAYLIGHT
   


             OUT OF THE TURN THEY COME


POST TIME MIKE'S LEAD HAS BEEN DESTROYED
AS TIGER DANCER, ALONG WITH DUSTY -&- RAVEN
    HAVE CAUGHT UP TO THE COLT
NOW IT IS TIGER DANCER PUTTING A FRISKY FILLY NOSE IN FRONT
    TO TAKE COMMAND OF THE LEAD

POST TIME MIKE IS RIGHT AT HER TAIL

DUSTY IS NEXT BUT IS NOT MAINTAINING HER SPEED NOW
          DROPPING BACK BY AT LEAST 10 LENGTHS

RAVEN STUMBLED COMING OUT OF THE TURN LOSING GROUND
KY BLUE CATS STILL MOVING WELL IS STAYING RIGHT WITH RAVEN

IT'S SEVERAL LENGTHS BACK TO RUFFIAN

THERE IS A HUGE GAP BACK TO THE REST OF THE FIELD
WHO SO FAR ARE NOT SHOWING ANY SIGNS OF SPEED ~
 
THUNDER CAT ~ CATALINA ~ BLUNNY -&- REAL QUIET
           RUNNING IN ANOTHER TIME ZONE!
   


            THEY'RE AT THE TOP OF THE STRETCH


TIGER DANCER LEADING THE WAY ~
BUT SUDDENLY SOMETHING CAUGHT HER ATTENTION
AND THE FIERCE FILLY IS DROPPING BACK
       


THIS OPENS THE DOOR FOR POST TIME MIKE TO TAKE COMMAND

RAVEN INCREASING HIS SPEED IS TURNING UP THE HEAT AND
NOW IS JUST A LENGTH BEHIND THE FRONT RUNNING COLT
       


CATALINA GETTING HER ACT TOGETHER FINALLY IS MOVING UP FAST
             AND NOW IS NECK -&- NECK WITH RAVEN

TIGER DANCER IS NEXT FOLLOWED BY KY BLUE CATS

              IT'S A HUGE GAP BACK TO:
DUSTY ~ RUFFIAN ~ THUNDER CAT ~ BLUNNY -&- REAL QUIET


               AND DOWN THE STRETCH THEY COME


POST TIME MIKE WITH A NEW FOUND ENERGY HAS INCREASED
    HIS LEAD OVER RAVEN ~ CATALINA -&- TIGER DANCER

HOLD ON FOLKS ~ SOMETHING HAS THE CROWD UP ON THEIR FEET!

A HUGE ROAR HAS EXPLODED FROM THE STANDS AS THE FANS HAVE
TURNED THEIR ATTENTION FROM POST TIME MIKE WAY IN FRONT
     ~  NOW LOOKING TOWARD THE BACK OF THE FIELD ~
               


A BLURR HAS JUST FLOWN RIGHT UP THE RAIL LIKE A LIGHTNING BOLT
  PASSING ONE AFTER ANOTHER AS IF THEY WERE JUST AT A TROT!
  


        NOW WE SEE WHAT IS CAUSING ALL THE COMMOTION!

IT IS ~REAL QUIET~ WHOSE NAME NOW MAKES NO SENSE
WITH THE THUNDERING ROAR FROM THE CROWD THIS COLT HAS CAUSED!

FROM AT LEAST 25 LENGTHS BACK IN LAST,
THIS COURAGEOUS COLT HAS FLOWN
RIGHT ON BY EVERYONE IN FRONT OF HIM
WITH HIS SIGHTS NOW SET ON THE FURIOUSLY FAST COLT IN FRONT

LIKE A ROCKET HEADING INTO SPACE, 
REAL QUIET HAS PASSED THE FRONT RUNNING LEADER
   WHO'S JOCKEY APPEARS STUNNED!

        THE CROWD IS GOING WILD! 
THE CHEERS -&- SCREAMS ARE DEAFENING
AS REAL QUIET ROARS TO THE WIRE WITH AN INCREDIBLE LATE RUN

Handicapping / HORSE VIDEO ~ MUSICAL

               :forruffian:

THIS IS TOO COOL NOT TO SHARE!  :girlkiss:

It’s easy as Secretariat in the Belmont. It’s called “Fugue for Tinhorns.”
Never heard of it? Oh yeah, you have. You just didn’t know what it was called.
Neither did I until I looked it up.
If you do one thing today, play it {LINK BELOW} It will make you smile.

The clip is from the movie but it debuted on Broadway in 1950.
It’s from the musical “Guys and Dolls,” which has a strong gambling undertone to it.
It still holds up pretty well.
I saw it in Chicago and at the Hollywood Bowl,
which you should do whenever that venue does theater.

If you didn’t click on the link and are still wondering, it starts:
 “I got the horse right here, the name is Paul Revere.
And here's a guy that says if the weather's clear, can do. Can do.
This guy says the horse can do. If he says the horse can do. Can do. Can do.”
