GOOD EVENING & WELCOME TO MIDWEEK MAYHEM AT DELTA DOWNS

OUR FEATURE EVENT: THE BLUE-SUPER-MOON-ECLIPSE STAKES

IT IS ALSO A BOTS (BATTLE OF THE SEXES) DAY WHERE
DEFENDING CHAMP, THUNDER CAT, WILL TRY TO REPEAT
HER WINNING WAYS OF LAST TIME

SHE WILL HAVE 7 CHALLENGERS DUE TO THE LATE SCRATCH
OF TIGER DANCER WHO, DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND
HER CONTROL COULD NOT MAKE IT TO THE GATE

THE 8 ARE IN THE GATE AND WE ARE READY TO RUN
THE BLUE SUPER MOON ECLIPSE STAKES

AND AWAAAAAAAAAAAAAY THEY GO

IT'S A FAST FRISKY FOURSOME OUT FOR AN EARLY LEAD
BLUNNY ~ DUSTY ~ THUNDER CAT & REAL QUIET

IT'S JUST 2 LENGTHS BACK TO CIGARSHOP & RUFFIAN
FOLLOWED BY CRUZAN & CATALINA

OUT OF THE TURN THEY COME

IT'S NOW CIGARSHOP WITH REAL QUIET AND CRUZAN RIGHT AT HIS TAIL
AS THESE 3 COLTS LEAD THE WAY WITHOUT A FILLY IN SIGHT ~
AFTER DUSTY & THUNDER CAT BOTH FAILED TO HANDLE THE TURN WELL

THEY'RE AT THE TOP OF THE STRETCH

CIGARSHOP IS BEGINNING TO LOOK LEG WEARY AT THE SAME
TIME THAT REAL QUIET IS LOOKING SUPURRR STRONG ~
GAINING GROUND & NOW PASSING THE COLT IN FRONT TO TAKE TOTAL COMMAND OF THE RACE

CRUZAN IS RIGHT THERE AT CIGARSHOP'S TAIL

BLUNNY IS NEXT FOLLOWED BY THUNDER CAT ~ CATALINA, DUSTY
AND RUFFIAN AS THE FOUR NOT-SO-FAST-FILLYS TRAIL THE FIELD

AND DOWN THE STRETCH THEY COME

REAL QUIET NOW MAKING A MOCKERY OF THE RACE JUST
PUTTING ON A DISPLAY OF POWER, SPEED & STYLE

BUT SUDDENLY ~ DEFENDING CHAMP, THUNDER CAT IS PICKING
UP THE PACE & CLOSING QUICKLY ON THE COLT IN CHARGE ~

SHE HAS PASSED A TIRING NOT-SO-ENERGIZER-BLUNNY ~
SHE HAS PASSED CRUZAN, AND NOW PASSING CIGARSHOP
WITH ONLY REAL QUIET IN HER WAY OF A REPEAT VICTORY

THE WIRE IS GETTING CLOSER AS REAL QUIET GLANCES OVER
HIS SHOULDER SEEING THE FRISKY FIREY FILLY GAINING ON HIM

BUT REALIZING THAT COLT BOTS GLORY IS AT STAKE ~
DECIDES IT'S TIME TO SHOW WHO IS GONNA STAND
IN THE WINNER'S CIRCLE TONIGHT

WITH ONE FINAL SUPER SURGE OF SPEED, REAL QUIET PUTS AWAY
THE FILLY ~ ADDING A COLT VICTORY IN THE BOTS RECORD BOOK

========= OFFICIAL ORDER OF FINISH =========

REAL QUIET = $64.40
*Good Start + Outstanding 2nd Half!

(DC) THUNDER CAT = $44
*Strong Closing Kick

CIGARSHOP = $29.70
*Speedy 1st Half ~ Snail Speed 2nd Half

CRUZAN = $25.50
*Good Start ~ Lacked Closing Speed

=========== ALSO RAN ===========

BLUNNY = $23.30

CATALINA = $20.90

DUSTY =$19.80

RUFFIAN = $13 (Ironically ~ Her 'Lucky #13)
*Gave Her Inner Cheetah The Day Off ~
Perhaps Because Tiger Dancer Had Arranged The Aussie Dancers
(The Thunder From Down Under) To Entertain In The Cat House
Plus A Fresh Batch Of Catnip Just Shipped In From Colorado ~
That Combination Is Enough To Make Any Filly Anxious To Be There!

WE NOW BID YOU A GOOD EVENING FROM CAJUN COUNTRY
WISHING ALL A SAFE, SOBER, NON-TEXTING DRIVE HOME
MAY THE PURRRRRRRRR BE WITH YOU
