SUPURRR SATURDAY ~ 4/14 *RESULTS* @ OAKLAWN
« on: April 16, 2018, 01:48:05 PM »
    :forruffian:               **RESULTS**

   
GOOD AFTERNOON -&- WELCOME TO SUPURRR SATURDAY
      COMING TO YOU FROM AWESOME AR-KANSAS



  **OUR FEATURE EVENT: THE ''OUACHITA MOUNTAIN MARATHON''
               
   


REAL QUIET WILL HAVE TEN TENACIOUS CHALLENGERS
TRYING TO REPEAT HIS LAST VICTORY GALLOP EFFORT

10 IN THE GATE PATIENTLY WAITING FOR COLT CRUZAN TO
SETTLE DOWN AND BEHAVE AS HE WAS MAKING EVERY ATTEMPT
TO GO INTO CATALINA'S STALL ~ THO WE HAVE NO CLUE WHY?

FINALLY WITH A CARROT + A BLINDFOLD, THE QUIRKY COLT IS IN!
     


AND AWAY THEY GO -- IN THE 'OUACHITA MOUNTAIN MARATHON'
                           


OUT FOR THE LEAD IS DEFENDING CHAMP, REAL QUIET
JOINED BY POST TIME MIKE + CIGARSHOP -
  BUT THE PACE IS FAIRLY SLOW SO FAR

IT'S JUST A LENGTH BACK TO BLUNNY
WHOSE ENERGIZER-BUNNY-BATTERY
    SEEMS TO BE FULLY CHARGED!
 


HE QUICKLY HAS THE COMPANY OF TIGER DANCER
AS THESE 2 ARE SEVERAL LENGTHS AHEAD OF THE REST OF THE FIELD
       


      ~~OUT OF THE TURN THEY COME~~


THE 'ENERGIZER-BLUNNY' EMERGES WITH THE LEAD BY HIMSELF!
WITH SUPURR-SONIC-SPEED, THE COLT IS SETTING FAST FRACTIONS

BUT SUDDENLY, RUFFIAN HAS LET HER 'INNER-CHEETAH' COME OUT
TO RUN, AND HAS QUICKLY CAUGHT UP TO THE RUNAWAY COLT!
         


POST TIME MIKE + REAL QUIET ARE NEXT -- JUST A LENGTH BACK

IT'S ANOTHER 3 LENGTHS BACK TO THUNDER CAT + CIGARSHOP
GAINING GROUND ON THE FRONT RUNNING FRISKY FOURSOME

TIGER DANCER IS NEXT, FOLLOWED CLOSELY BY DUSTY + PEEPTOAD

    AT THE BACK OF THE PACK IS --> CATALINA NOT SHOWING ANY SPEED
BUT EVEN SLOWER IS A CRABBY CREEP-ALONG CRUZAN -- WHO IS FOLLOWING
CATALINA'S TAIL AS IF IT WERE A HORSE TREAT LACED WITH CARROTS!



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


RUFFIAN & BLUNNY ~ NECK + NECK CONTINUE TO LEAD THE WAY
 
CIGARSHOP IS PICKING UP SPEED QUICKLY AND NOW IS JUST
   A LENGTH OFF OF THE TWIN TAILS HEADING TO THE WIRE
AND STILL IN WITH A GOOD CHANCE OF STEALING THE RACE

              IT'S DEFENDING CHAMP, REAL QUIET NEXT ---
GAINING GROUND QUICKLY WITH HIS MIND SET ON A REPEAT WIN

ANOTHER 2 LENGTHS BACK ARE POST TIME MIKE -&- THUNDER CAT
    NECK AND NECK BOTH IN WITH A CHANCE AT SOME MONEY

TIGER DANCER -&- PEEPTOAD ARE NEXT BUT THEIR HOPES AND HOPS
OF ANY PLACING OR MONEY IS QUICKLY FADING WITH EVERY STRIDE

ANOTHER FEW LENGTHS BACK ARE DUSTY & CATALINA
DOING THE TWIN-TURTLE-TANGO BEING FOLLOWED EVEN
SLOWER AT SNAIL TEMPO, BY CRUZAN ~ WHO APPARENTLY
DOES NOT LIKE THIS TRACK AT ALL,  AND STILL APPEARS TO
HAVE MORE INTEREST IN CATALINA THAN IN RUNNING A RACE!
   


      ~~AND DOWN THE STRETCH THEY COME~~


RUFFIAN -&- BLUNNY IN A DETERMINATION DUEL TO THE WIRE
CIGARSHOP STILL SHOWING GREAT ENERGY IS JUST A 1/2 LENGTH
BEHIND THE FRONT RUNNING TWIN TAILS OF RUFFIAN + BLUNNY
             


REAL QUIET IS NOT THRU YET IN HIS QUEST FOR A REPEAT BUT
IS NOT GAINING ANY GROUND ON THE TENACIOUS TRIO IN FRONT

POST TIME MIKE + THUNDER CAT SLOWLY LOSING ANY CHANCE
WITH A TIRING TIGER DANCER + PEEPTOAD TRYING TO KEEP UP

DUSTY & CATALINA STRUGGLING ~ FOLLOWED BY CRUZAN

THE WIRE LOOMS JUST AHEAD AS THE ''CHEETAH'' & ''BUNNY''
 CROSS THE LINE TOGETHER ~ IN A PHOTO FINISH FINALE
     


 **HOLD ALL TICKETS:  OBJECTION LIGHTS FLASHING**

STEWARDS ARE DELIBERATING AS THEY WATCH THE REPLAY
TO SEE IF BLUNNY HAD INTENTIONALLY VEERED SHARPLY
                 CAUSING RUFFIAN TO MISS A STEP

   FINALLY AFTER SEVERAL RE-WINDS OF THE REPLAY THE
'POWERS THAT BE'  DECIDED THE VEERING WAS NOT WORTHY
OF A D.Q. ON BLUNNY, WHO WILL EMERGE VICTORIOUS WITH
                 A SHARP REPRIMAND TO HIS JOCKEY

Which WILBUR (aka: WILBO) Prevented With His Constant Chatter
    In Cruzan's Ear Causing A Failure To Focus For The Colt
Rumor has it that the 'Wilbur' Chatter was about the Dog House
With The Beer, Booze & Babes As Incentive To Run Slower?



WE NOW BID YOU A GOOD EVENING FROM THE OZARKS
WISHING ALL A SAFE, SOBER, NON-TEXTING DRIVE HOME
