GOOD AFTERNOON & WELCOME TO
MIDWEEK MAYHEM AT KENTUCKY DOWNS RACETRACK

SITTING IN FOR TRACK ANNOUNCER, DUSTY, WILL BE
'RUFFZILLA' ROARING IN WITH OUR RACE CALL

TODAY IS NATIONAL BE QUIET DAY
HONORING THAT CELEBRATION OUR FEATURE EVENT IS
THE ''SOUND OF SILENCE'' STAKES
SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

DEFENDING CHAMP, CRUZAN WILL HAVE 9 CHALLENGERS
TRYING TO SLOW DOWN HIS CAPTIVATING CRUISIN STYLE!

EVERYONE IS IN THE GATE BEHAVING NICELY
(For A Change!)

AND AWAAAAY THEY GO IN THE 'SOUND OF SILENCE' STAKES

A SPEEDY DUO OF DUSTY & EL PRADO TAKE THE EARLY LEAD AS THE
OTHER 8 ARE SEVERAL LENGTHS BACK HEADING ON TO THE TURN


OUT OF THE TURN THEY COME AS DUSTY HAS SHAKEN OFF
EL PRADO TO TAKE COMMAND OF THE LEAD BY 10 LENGTHS!


BLUNNY IS NEXT FOLLOWED BY EL PRADO & CIGARSHOP
IT'S ANOTHER FEW LENGTHS BACK TO REAL QUIET WHO
SHOULD APPRECIATE TODAY'S 'STAKES NAME'

TIGER DANCER IS RIGHT ON REAL QUIET'S TAIL
BUT HE DOESN'T SEEM TO BE MINDING THAT

ANOTHER 2 LENGTHS BACK ARE THUNDER CAT & CRUZAN
WITH A SLUGGISH SNAIL LIKE DUO AT THE BACK
CATALINA & RUFFIAN SHOWING NO SPEED AT ALL -- YET

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

DUSTY STILL IN COMMAND AS CIGARSHOP MOVING UP QUICKLY
HAS RUN RIGHT ON BY BLUNNY TO MOVE INTO 2ND ~

THUNDER CAT HAS HER RUNNING SHOES ON AND IS RIGHT
THERE WITH CIGARSHOP ABOUT 5 LENGTHS BEHIND DUSTY

EL PRADO HAS REGAINED HER EARLIER MOMENTUM NOW
MOVING UP INTO 4TH

THE 'ENERGIZER-BLUNNY' BATTERY SEEMS TO BE LOSING POWER
DROPPING BACK FROM EARLIER FAST FRACTIONS

CATALINA FINALLY AWAKENED AND IS STARTING TO MOVE UP

EVEN FARTHER BACK ARE REAL QUIET, TIGER DANCER,
DEFENDING CHAMP, CRUZAN WITH LITTLE TO NO CHANCE OF REPEAT

AND MEANDERING ALONG ON HER OWN IS A VERY LETHARGIC RUFFIAN WHO
OBVIOUSLY FAILED TO NOTIFY HER 'INNER-CHEETAH' THAT THERE WAS A RACE TODAY!


RUMOR HAS IT THAT SHE HAS HER EYE ON HOLDING ONTO THE 2017 CAT HOUSE KEY!


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

DUSTY STARTING TO LOOK A BIT LEG WEARY AFTER SETTING
FRISKY FAST FRACTIONS FROM THE GATE ~

THUNDER CAT IS RIGHT THERE AT DUSTY'S TAIL
GAINING GROUND WITH EVERY STRIDE

CIGARSHOP NOW IS REALLY 'FIRED' UP COLLARING THUNDER CAT AS
THESE 2 TURN UP THE HEAT TO TRY AND CATCH THE FILLY IN FRONT


IT'S A LONG WAY BACK TO EL PRADO WHO MAY BE ABLE TO
HOLD ON LONG ENOUGH TO STEAL 'THE PRECIOUS'

SUDDENLY A HUGE ROAR EXPLODES FROM THE STANDS AS
CIGARSHOP WITH ONE MIGHTY MOVE HAS RUN RIGHT ON BY
THE 2 FIERCE FILLYS IN FRONT TO PUT HIS SMOKIN-HOT-NOSE
ON THE WIRE FIRST!


THE 'SOUND OF SILENCE' WAS JUST A MEMORY AS THIS
CALCULATING COURAGEOUS COLT BROKE THE SOUND BARRIER
WITH A LAST MINUTE SUPER-SONIC-SURGE OF SPEED!


DEFENDING CHAMP, CRUZAN, WAS MORE IN A TEPID-TEMPO
GEAR TODAY ALMOST LANDING IN THE OLE DOG HOUSE
AND SO CLOSE TO A 'YO-YO-DUDE' TROPHY!

BUT CLOSE ONLY COUNTS IN HORSE SHOES AND THE HORSE SHOES
ON THE FASTEST HORSE TODAY BELONG TO CIGARSHOP!
