Good Afternoon & Welcome To
THE FAIR GROUNDS
Our Very Special Event Today
Replacing The Ruffarama S
The REAL~QUIET Birthday Stakes
(The NOT So Real-Quiet Treats)
Today Being Run At: 1/18 M
Due To Missed Flights We Have
Had Several Scratches
Now Let's Meet The Field
Leading Off Alone In PP #1
Due to her Shenanigans in the Paddock and Post Parade, some trainers
have requested she come out first or last to avoid trouble!
She is a very Fractious & Feisty FILLY
who entertains her Fans with her Cat-Like-Dancing but much to the
chagrin of her trainer, often leaves her Best Effort IN the Gate!
After several very disappointing Dismal races she rebounded in glorious
Cheetah-Like Fashion in her last start to Pounce from Last to First in
Wild-Rush of Energy
Hopefully that effort did not take too much out of her today
She goes off at: 3/1
In PP #2
Following some very serious Gate Incidents and injury, This
veteran Stallion has bounced back in grande fashion in his last start
much to the delight of his fans
His earlier spring campaign showed little
but his Summer and Fall races showed us some Brilliant efforts reminding
us of why and how he won awards last season
If and When he is at 100% fit...
He can loom a threat in any race at any distance
He is At: 9/2
In PP #3
A very Talented and Well Bred FILLY who due to some serious Health
issues this year has been off her game in many of her races
But when she is healthy and fit...
she is a Mighty Warrior Princess!
She can bounce exquisitely from a horrible performance into a Winning
which she ALMOST did in her last start in THIS Series only losing out in
the final furlongs to the 'Cheetah~Girl'
NEVER COUNT HER OUT
She goes off at: 6/1
In PP #4
INTO THE MYSTIC
A SuperSonic Speedy FILLY who rarely Disappoints her devoted Fans
She may not always Win but she rarely place out of the money
Her last 2 Efforts were very strong even tho she finished 3rd but only
by a short nostril whisker!
She is Dangerous in any race!
She is at: 5/1
In PP #5
The Most Improved runner this season, this COLT can Spring a Surprise in
any race at any moment...
Just when U think he is out of it...
He comes out of the clouds like a Tornado to shock those he passes!
This shorter distance should suit him
better for his racing style as we have seen in the past
He goes off at: 7/1
In PP #6
This year this Incredible FILLY has shone like A Super~Star in THIS
She Has OUT-RUN ~
OUT-CLASSED ~ OUT-SHINED
Her competition in so many races with a Breathtaking Last-To-First
Zenyatta-Look-Alike closing kick that when she fails to Surprise her
Fans with that Shocker......
They go home feeling Let Down
Unfortunately... THAT is exactly what happened in her Last 2 Races
She has run SO well in SO many races that sooner or later it can take a
She also is Capable of Springing back like A Monster Rubber Band...
and Shocking the Front Runners once again with her Spectacular Closing
Compared to her last 3 races at 7/5
She is at 10/1 Today
And she may very well make a fool of
In PP #7
The Birthday Boy: REAL QUIET
An Exceptionally Well Bred COLT
who has finally rebounded with some impressive efforts after a
lack-lustre beginning of the season
He is more than Capable of running
extremely well if only he can maintain his FOCUS on Running > Not
BLINKERS ON has seemed to help in
his recent races and they are ON again
He Goes Off At: 8/1
We Now Turn U Over To
Our Track Announcer
All the Horses are in their gates except for RUFFIAN who is pulling her
and showing NO signs of wanting to go in
She has tossed her Jockey who is waiting to get back on...
NOT a Good Sign for her fans at all
Now CRIMINAL TYPE also is acting up
and is having to be blindfolded and led in
OK FINALLY We Are Ready To Go!
And... They're Off...
Like A July 4th Rocket....
DUSTY has EXPLODED right out of the gate to take a Commanding Early
REAL QUIET is next about 5 Lengths back
EL PRADO showing good early speed is right there just a neck off of RQ
INTO THE MYSTIC off to a slow start
has not yet gotten into gear...
RUFFIAN + CRIMINAL-TYPE are
the early trailers...
so far behind the field they appear to be running in their own time zone
Heading into the Clubhouse Turn
Dusty's Lead has just been SHATTERED as TWO have FLOWN past her like she
was in Slow Motion!
EL PRADO On the Rail...
+ KD On the Far outside
BOTH with Super-Sonic-Speed have taken the Lead by at least 10 Lengths
shocking the rest as they flew by!
EL PRADO with only a NOSE in front
of KD is moving along strongly and neither is showing signs of weakening
DUSTY is holding onto 3rd behind the Front Running Duo
REAL QUIET is next just a Length behind DUSTY
INTO THE MYSTIC is now beginning to
find her best stride
CRIMINAL TYPE with a slight show of energy is next but not looking like
he wants to run at all.... and
Her Jockey is fighting her the whole way
But we still have HALF The Rest Left To Run and as we all know...
ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN!
Coming Out Of The Clubhouse Turn...
DUSTY was Carried SO WIDE by CRIMINAL-TYPE who is Veering out badly that
Dusty nearly came into the Stands!
--- losing all her Momentum....
Could be a Jockey objection...?
EL PRADO + KD
Neck & Neck with a lead that is so far
ahead of the field it would take a Zenyatta like run to even catch them
INTO THE MYSTIC
Is moving strongly up the middle of the track with NEW Surge of
closing on the leaders quickly
THERE GOES RUFFIAN...
She FINALLY found her stride and is moving up FAST on the Inside Rail...
REAL QUIET is moving strong and steady but with a lot of ground to make
up after jumping a Shadow coming out of the Turn
And DOWN The STRETCH They Come
EL PRADO and KD neck and neck...
Neither one giving in...
The FILLY & The COLT
in A BATTLE to the Wire...
Tiz A MATCH RACE now...
KD is all out and only A Whisker would Separate these two
INTO THE MYSTIC
With a BOLD Huge Move has moved up
RUFFIAN is gaining on the Rail
DUSTY has now dropped back
and is backing up
REAL QUIET looking leg weary is next
CRIMINAL TYPE is being eased...
And Here Is The WIRE...
TOO CLOSE TO CALL!
