**RESULTS**

Image
GOOD AFTERNOON -&- WELCOME TO
SUPURRR SATURDAY AT GULFSTREAM PARK


THE SUN IS SHINING BRIGHTLY
THE SAME AS YESTERDAY = GROUNDHOG DAY
WHEN PUNXSUTAWNEY PHIL SAW HIS SHADOW....
WHO KNOWS WHAT LURKS? THE SHADOW KNOWS! :twisted:

KEEPING WITH THAT TRADITION: OUR FEATURE EVENT TODAY IS
THE ''PUNXSUTAWNEY PHIL'' STAKES

Image Image


LIKE THE MOVIE: GROUNDHOG DAY WHERE EVERYTHING REPEATS
SO TOO, THUNDER CAT RUNS TODAY HOPING TO REPEAT
HER LAST SUPURR SATURDAY WINNING EFFORT ~

WITH THE 2 SCRATCHES OF:
CATALINA --- TAKING A LITTLE R&R BREAK
TIGER DANCER --- FLIGHT CANCELLED DUE TO SNOW

THUNDER CAT WILL HAVE 8 CHALLENGERS TRYING TO STOP HER

THE NIMBLE NINE ARE IN THE GATE -&- WE ARE READY TO RUN


AWAAAAAAAAY THEY GO IN THE ''PUNXSUTAWNEY PHIL'' STAKES....
Image


IT'S A COLT DUO OUT FOR AN EARLY LEAD
AS CIGARSHOP -&- CRUZAN
TAKE THE FIELD INTO THE TURN

RUFFIAN HAS HER 'INNER CHEETAH' REVVED UP IN THE EARLY GOING
AND IS JUST AT THE TAILS OF THE COLT DUO AT THE FRONT

PEEPTOAD IS GAINING GROUND QUICKLY -- NOW JOINING RUFFIAN
POST TIME MIKE -&- REAL QUIET ARE NEXT SHOWING GOOD SPEED

DUSTY -&- THUNDER CAT ARE NEXT JUST A LENGTH BACK

BLUNNY HAS NOT YET CHARGED UP HIS ENERGIZER BATTERY
TRAILING THE FIELD IN THE EARLY GOING


THEY'RE AT THE TOP OF THE STRETCH
Image


THINGS AT THE FRONT HAVE DRAMATICALLY CHANGED AS NOW
IT IS REAL QUIET & RUFFIAN IN COMMAND OF THE LEAD

IT'S SEVERAL LENGTHS BACK TO PEEPTOAD & CRUZAN
CIGARSHOP IS JUST ANOTHER LENGTH BEHIND THAT DUO

POST TIME MIKE ~ DUSTY & DEFENDING CHAMP, THUNDER CAT ARE NEXT
AS THE NOT-SO-ENERGIZED-BLUNNY STILL TRAILS THE FIELD


AND DOWN THE STRETCH THEY COME
Image


REAL QUIET NOT LIVING UP TO HIS 'NAME' ... IS ROARING
AND NOW TOTALLY ALONE ON THE LEAD
AS RUFFIAN SUDDENLY SPOOKED AT SOMETHING
SHE SAW IN THE INFIELD, LOSING MOMENTUM AND THE LEAD
Image


PEEPTOAD JUST MANAGING TO AVOID THE ''CHEETAH-IN-REVERSE''
RIGHT IN HER PATH, LUCKILY IS ABLE TO 'LEAP' INTO ANOTHER LANE
AVOIDING WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN A FRIGHTENING FILLY FRUCKUS!
Image


CRUZAN -- WHO WAS NOT INVOLVED IN THAT NEAR MISHAP
TAKES ADVANTAGE OF THEIR MISFORTUNE AND MOVES UP INTO 2nd

CIGARSHOP -- MOVING ALONG SMOOTHLY
IS JUST A NOSE BEHIND PEEPTOAD
AS FINALLY BLUNNY FOUND HIS 'CHARGER'
AND IS GAINING GROUND QUICKLY
NOW RIGHT AT CIGARSHOP'S TAIL

IT'S A FEW LENGTHS BACK TO A TIRING RUFFIAN
FOLLOWED BY THUNDER CAT WHO NOW SEES
HER REPEAT CHANCES FADING INTO THE DISTANCE
AS REAL QUIET HAS SEPARATED HIMSELF
FROM THE FIELD BY HUGE MARGINS
Image


POST TIME MIKE -&- DUSTY IN A TIGHT BATTLE
FOR EITHER THE DOG HOUSE OR THE CAT HOUSE

REAL QUIET IS SPEEDING TO THE WIRE
WAY FASTER THAN ANY GROUNDHOG EVER COULD
LEAVING NO DOUBT WHO WILL STAND IN THE
WINNER'S CIRCLE TODAY AND
CELEBRATE IN THE PENTHOUSE LATER TONIGHT
Image **RQ .... IS THAT YOU?? :mrgreen:
