Good Afternoon + Welcome To
After A 2 Week Break For R+R
Super Saturday Is Back!
Hopefully All The Horses Are Well Rested
Today's Feature: The Ruffarama S
Presented By: Little Friskies
Today Run At: 1 1/8 M
We Have A Well Balanced Field
Of 4 Colts + 4 Fillies
The Horses Are Entering The Track
Now Let's Meet The Field:
Leading Off In PP#1
Winner Of The 2010 MVP Award,
The ONLY COLT To Win In BOTS!
This Dynamic COLT has shown vast improvement over his earlier races in
the Spring + Summer
His 1st Effort for the New-Year
was a Nail-Biter for 2nd
~Losing out by a short nostril hair ~
But An Impressive display of ability
with excellent form the entire race
He Goes Off At: 9/2
In PP #2
This Outstandingly Talented COLT has taken time off from the track for
rest after a very strong and impressive Campaign
He has a new trainer now who has high hopes for a strong showing in 2011
Having had so much time away from
the track is why his odds are at: 10/1
But he may very well make those who bet against him... Regret It
He is always dangerous!
In PP #3
INTO THE MYSTIC
Winner of The 2010 'Midweek-Mayhem'
and one of the Winners of BOTS
This Super-Sonic-Spectacular FILLY
can rarely be seen out of the money
Her 1st race in 2011 Proved to be an exciting one, with an incredible
display of power and speed, finishing 2nd to a Runaway Winner who nobody
was gonna catch that day (Criminal Type)
IF She ever is OFF the Board U can bet there is a very valid reason!
She Is At: 7/2
In PP #4
A 2010 Winner In BOTS Series
DH Winner 2nd in Super-Saturday
Having had some major health issues in 2010 this very talented FILLY
often was a disappointment to her fans when she could not run as well as
they know she can
She is well bred with much experience at all distances, all track
surfaces and IF She is at 100% Fitness > Watch Out!
She is More than Capable of Winning
any day, any track, any distance
She Goes Off At: 8/1
In PP 5
Winner Of The 2010 Most-Improved-Award
This "Comeback-Kid" COLT has shown late in the year just how Dangerous
he can be when he puts his mind to it!
He usually has shown Gritty Determination but seems to run better at a
shorter distance so today's 1 1/8 M should suit him
He proved this perception to be Wrong when he WON easily in his last
start of THIS Series in 2010 at the 1 1/4 M Distance BC Day
That Race Makes Him Our Favorite
He Goes Off At 5/2
In PP #6
D U S T Y
A Winning Filly in BOTS
HANDICAPPER Of The YEAR: 2010
For All Of Her Outstanding Accomplishments
Her ComeBack Race in 2011 was a Dismal Display ~
After such a Spectacular Season last year
Surely A Valid Reason for not YET showing how Great A Runner She can be!
She can be fairly INconsistent so even finishing last in one race, her
fans know how she can surprise with a Runaway performance in her next
She Is At: 12/1
In PP #7
2010 Did not show how good this Older STALLION can run, having won MVP
Last Year and other awards as well
His COMEBACK Race in 2011
Reminded all of his Fans Why + How
he won those awards last season
A Breathtaking Explosion of Power
he Dominated the Field to win
going away by 10 Lengths
But Age ~ Wear + Tear over so many years can take a toll so nobody ever
knows how this guy will run on any given day
He is a Huge Question Mark in any race
But his last race has earned him the
odds today: 3/1
Coming out Last + Alone
As Requested By Other Trainers
Due to her 'Shenanigans' in the Paddock And Post-Parade
In PP #8
Top Winner 2010 BOTS Award
Runner Up: Super Saturday Award
(DH With El Prado)
Runner Up: Midweek Mayhem
Runner Up: HOTY
An Entertaining FILLY who Dances Like A Cat thru the Post Parade but who
often leaves her best energy At The Gate!
She is Capable of A Cheetah-Like POUNCE in the Home Stretch that
shocks those she passes
OR She Can run like a Tortoise
the entire race with NO appearance of wanting to run at all!
Nobody ever knows WHICH Filly will show up on any given day!
Her 1st Race in 2011 was a Middle-Of-The-Road effort
showing some speed but not a closing kick, finishing 4th by A Whisker
She Goes Off At: 7/1
We Now Turn You Over To
Our Track Announcer
All the Horses are Standing quietly
RUFFIAN who as we often see...
Has tossed her Jockey 3 feet into the air
after having an Altercation with DUSTY
right at the Gate...
(Persnickity MARE Syndrome!)
She is being Backed In now and her Jockey has been examined and appears
to be ok...
And Awaaaaaaaay They Go
Like Twin Rockets right out of the gate
INTO THE MYSTIC + EL-PRADO
out for the Early Lead....
Fast out of the gate and just behind the front running 2 Fillies showing
good early speed...
Just a half length off of CT are
ROC + REAL-QUIET both with good energy early on...
Broke well and now up to join the 2 Colts running behind the front
running 2 Fillies
Missed the Break but now is beginning to show some speed is next
Down to her Knees when the gate opened and has spotted the field at
least 10 lengths now trails...
Heading Into The Clubhouse Turn...
EL PRADO has separated herself from INTO-THE-MYSTIC who appears to have
lost some momentum as she spooked at something on the rail....
Someone is moving like A BULLET
along the rail...
with an Explosive Surge of Power that has now given Him the LEAD
Strong from the Gate now has moved into 3rd behind CT and El Prado who
is holding steady in 2nd....
INTO THE MYSTIC
back now in 4th
K D and ROC are next
Just in Front of DUSTY Who has not started her best running yet...
RUFFIAN Still trails and showing NO signs of wanting to run at all....
BUT WE HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO
And anything Can + Often Does Happen
It Ain't Over Till A Nose Hits The Wire
At the Top of the Stretch...
Its ALL CRIMINAL TYPE
having things very much his own
way with little challenge from anyone
is moving up quickly on the far outside like he JUST WOKE UP!
And he is on FIRE NOW!
is beginning to make Her move now up the middle and is gaining on the
EL PRADO is not thru yet
INTO THE MYSTIC
lost her momentum on the turn
and has not found it again
AT THE BACK is
KD who jumped a Shadow and is backing up badly
RUFFIAN STILL TRAILS The Field
DOWN The STRETCH They Come
CRIMINAL TYPE still with a Huge lead
ROC holding steady in 2nd...
BUT...HOLD ON.... FOLKS
Someone is FLYING Up The Rail...
Passing one horse after another...
as if they were standing STILL...
WHO IS IT?
Hard to tell yet...
Too much Traffic
But I think I can make out the
NEON PINK SILKS of the #8
FROM THE BACK OF THE PACK
at least 15 Lengths behind the Field
She has ROARED Up The Rail and is closing as if she Sprouted Pegasus
She is closing on the front runners faster than a Speeding Bullet but
has a lot of ground to make up...
And There She Goes Like A CHEETAH!
She has passed KD...ITM...RQ...EL-PRADO...DUSTY
And now only ROC + CRIMINAL TYPE
in front of her...
But she is running out of ground...
CRIMINAL TYPE showing NO signs of Weakening...
She just passed ROC....
And now its ONLY CRIMINAL-TYPE
standing in her way of a Victory-Gallop
Can She Get There In Time...
SHE HAS ROARED Past CRIMINAL-TYPE whose Jockey has a SHOCKED look on his
NO PHOTO FINISH TODAY FOLKS
She is Still FLYING AFTER the Wire
with her Jockey unable to slow her down
holding on for A VERY Game
Determined 2nd place
His 2nd huge effort of the new year!
Well Done by the Ole War-Horse!

just in time for Superfecta!
