GOOD AFTERNOON & WELCOME TO SUPURR SATURDAY
TODAY WE ARE AT CHURCHILL DOWNS
WHERE THE RAIN IS FALLING IN KENTUCKY
WHEN IT'S NEEDED SO MUCH MORE IN CALIFORNIA!

PERHAPS MOTHER NATURE'S RAIN MAP GOT DESTROYED IN FIRES?

OUR FEATURE EVENT TODAY WILL BE
''SOGGY OR SIZZLE'' STAKES
WHO WILL LET THE RAIN DAMPEN THEIR DETERMINATION ~
AND WHO WILL SIZZLE IN SPITE OF BEING SOAKED!

DUE TO LATE SCRATCHES OF REAL QUIET & CATALINA ~
DEFENDING CHAMP, PEEPTOAD, WILL HAVE 9 CALCULATING
CHALLENGERS, TRYING TO RAIN ON HER PARADE!


THE TALENTED TEN ARE IN THE GATE
EL PRADO IS KICKING UP A FUSS AND HAD TO BE TAKEN OUT
THE FRACTIOUS FILLY APPEARS TO BE UPSET OVER SOMETHING
A FEW TREATS & A REASSURING PAT ON HER BACK
HAS LET HER CALM DOWN AND RE-ENTER THE GATE

PERHAPS, RAINDROPS KEEP FALLIN ON HER HEAD ARE
NOT THE PREFERRED ATMOSPHERE FOR RUNNING?

AND THEY'RE OFF IN THE ''SOGGY OR SIZZLE'' STAKES

IT'S A FRISKY FOURSOME OUT FOR A SHORT EARLY LEAD
BLUNNY ~ POST TIME MIKE ~ THUNDER CAT & DUSTY

TIGER DANCER IS NEXT, CLOSING THE GAP QUICKLY
WITH A 'SMOKIN' CIGARSHOP RIGHT ON HER TAIL

RUFFIAN IS NEXT FOLLOWED BY PEEPTOAD & CRUZAN

EL PRADO STALLED WHEN HER GATE OPENED, LEAVING
THE FRUSTRATED FILLY FAR BEHIND THE FIELD

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

THE FEISTY FIERCE FOURSOME NOW HAS BEEN REDUCED TO ONE
AS THE 'ENERGIZER-BLUNNY' WITH A FULLY CHARGED BATTERY PACK
HAS SEPARATED HIMSELF FROM THE OTHER 3 BY DAYLIGHT!

IT'S 10 LENGTHS BACK TO DUSTY & POST TIME MIKE

DEFENDING CHAMP, PEEPTOAD, & THUNDER CAT ARE NEXT

ANOTHER SEVERAL LENGTHS BACK ARE A TURTLE-TEMPO-TRIO
CIGARSHOP ~ RUFFIAN & TIGER DANCER

EVEN SLOWER THAN THE TURTLE-TRIO IS THE SNAIL + SLOTH DUO
OF EL PRADO & CRUZAN WHO HAVE TOTALLY LOST TOUCH WITH
THE FIELD ~ JUST MEANDERING ALONG FAR BACK

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

THE 'ENERGIZER-BLUNNY' IS SHOWING NO SIGNS OF THE RAIN
DAMPENING HIS SPIRITS OR DYNAMIC DETERMINATION

POST TIME MIKE HAS INCREASED HIS MOMENTUM AND NOW
HAS PASSED DUSTY TO MOVE INTO 2ND ~ BUT STILL AT LEAST
7 LENGTHS BEHIND THE FRONT RUNNING BLATANTLY BOLD BUNNY!

A FIXATED FOURSOME IS NEXT WITH A CHANCE OF GARNERING
THE 3rd PLACE FLOWERS OR THE PRESTIGIOUS 'PRECIOUS'
DUSTY ~ CIGARSHOP ~ DEFENDING CHAMP PEEPTOAD & TIGER DANCER

IT'S ANOTHER FEW LENGTHS BACK TO THUNDER CAT & CRUZAN

RUFFIAN JUMPED SOMETHING ON THE TRACK ~
SCARING ANY MOMENTUM RIGHT OUT OF HER 'INNER-CHEETAH' ~
WHO MAY HAVE THOUGHT THE STRANGE OBJECT WAS GONNA GET HER?

FAR BACK IN ANOTHER TIME ZONE, AN ENERGY-LESS EL PRADO
SEEMS TO BE SEVERELY AFFECTED BY THE RAIN & ALL THOSE
BIG BLACK SCARY UBIQUITOUS UMBRELLAS IN THE INFIELD!

THE FEARFUL FILLY IS HAVING NONE OF RUNNING
~ MEANDERING ALL OVER THE TRACK, APPEARING TO BE VERY
FRIGHTENED & FLUSTERED

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

BLUNNY WHO APPARENTLY CHARGED HIS ENERGIZER-BATTERY
TO THE MAXIMUM BEFORE THE RACE, IS SHOWING THE REST OF
THE FIELD HIS TAIL FRIVOLOUSLY FLUTTERING FAR IN FRONT

POST TIME MIKE, TRYING TO CREAT A CHALLENGE IS NEXT BUT
NOT GAINING ON THE BODACIOUS BUNNY IN THE DISTANCE

THE FATIGUING FOURSOME FAR BEHIND ARE STILL NECK & NECK
TRYING FOR A PIECE OF THE PURSE
BUT WITH NO CHANCE OF STANDING IN THE WINNER'S CIRCLE

DUSTY ~ CIGARSHOP ~ TIGER DANCER
AND PEEPTOAD WITH NO CHANCE OF REPEAT GLORY

ALONE AT THE WIRE, HOPPING ALONG WITH BODACIOUS-BUNNYTUDE ~
BLUNNY REFUSED TO LET THE RAIN STOP HIS SIZZLE!

POST TIME MIKE, RUNNING WITH DYNAMIC DETERMINATION
CLEARLY THE BEST OF THE REST WITH AN EFFORT THAT ON
MANY OTHER RACE DAYS, WOULD HAVE BEEN A WINNING ONE

DUSTY JUST HOLDS OFF CIGARSHOP FOR THE FLOWERS
WHO WILL STEAL 'THE PRECIOUS' PRECARIOUSLY FROM PEEPTOAD!
