GOOD AFTERNOON & WELCOME TO MIDWEEK MAYHEM

TODAY WE ARE AT TAMPA BAY DOWNS
CELEBRATING ABRAHAM LINCOLN DAY OUR FEATURE EVENT IS
THE ''FREEDOM FOREVER'' STAKES

WITH THE SCRATCHES OF CATALINA, BRI, RQ, RAVEN ~
DEFENDING CHAMP DUSTY, WILL HAVE JUST 6 CONTENTIOUS
CHALLENGERS TRYING TO PREVENT ANOTHER 'DUSTING' FINISH

THE SCINTILLATING SEVEN ARE IN THE GATE READY TO RUN
AND THEY'RE OFF IN THE ''FREEDOM FOREVER'' STAKES

OUT FOR A QUICK EARLY LEAD IS CRUZAN SEPARATING HIMSELF
FROM THE FIELD BY DAYLIGHT HEADING INTO THE TURN

OUT OF THE TURN THEY COME

THINGS CHANGED QUICKLY AS NOW IT IS THUNDER CAT
BY A FRISKY FILLY NOSE OVER CRUZAN

ROAMIN AND DUSTY ARE NEXT ABOUT 8 LENGTHS BACK

IT'S A BIG GAP BACK TO THE EARLY TURTLE TRAILERS
TIGER DANCER, BLUNNY & RUFFIAN

THEY'RE AT THE TOP OF THE STRETCH

SUDDENLY THE CROWD IS ON THEIR FEET SCREAMING LIKE BANSHEES

FROM THE CLOUDS, IT IS RUFFIAN TURNING HER 'INNER-CHEETAH'
LOOSE AND ROARING UP THE RAIL, PASSING ALL IN HER WAY!

THE FERVENTLY FAST FILLY FLYING LIKE HER NAMESAKE 'CHEETAH'
HAS NOW PASSED EVERYONE, INCLUDING THUNDER CAT
TO TAKE COMMAND OF THE LEAD
WITH A BREATHTAKING RUN FROM LAST TO FIRST
IN THE 'WINX' OF AN EYE!

THUNDER CAT & CRUZAN ARE JUST 5 LENGTHS BACK
ROAMIN IS ON THE MOVE, GAINING GROUND QUICKLY

ANOTHER BIG GAP BACK TO THE NOT-SO-ENERGIZED-BLUNNY
AND DEFENDING CHAMP, DUSTY

FAR BACK JUST MEANDERING ALONG IN NO HURRY IS TIGER DANCER
APPARENTLY NOT LIKING THE FLORIDA HUMIDITY
SHOWING NO FELINE FRISKYNESS TODAY DOING A SLOW-SNAIL-SAMBA

AND DOWN THE STRETCH THEY COME

RUFFIAN ROARING RIGHT ALONG WITH CHEETAH CONFIDENCE

THUNDER CAT STAYING RIGHT WITH THE FRISKY FILLY IN FRONT
CRUZAN JUST ANOTHER 3 LENGTHS BACK

ROAMIN IS ANOTHER 2 LENGTHS BEHIND CRUZAN

THE ENERGIZER-BLUNNY NOT SO ENERGIZED THIS DAY IS NEXT
WITH LITTLE CHANCE OF ANY 'GREEN' $$ TODAY OTHER THAN GRASS

DEFENDING CHAMP, DUSTY NOT GONNA DUST OFF ANY TROPHY TODAY

TIGER DANCER WILL BE DOING THE SUPURRR-SNAIL-SHUFFLE
ALL THE WAY TO YE OLE CAT HOUSE

THE WIRE LOOMS JUST AHEAD
AS RUFFIAN NOW HAS A TENACIOUS THUNDER CAT RIGHT AT HER TAIL
THE CROWD IS GOING WILD AS THE TWO FIERCE FILLYS HIT THE WIRE

WILL IT BE A DEAD HEAT? ONLY A PHOTO WILL REVEAL
OBJECTION LIGHTS ARE FLASHING
2 TRAINERS ON THE TRACK ~ 2 JOCKEYS ON THE PHONES ~
STEWARDS WATCHING THE REPLAY
CROWD IS GETTING ANTSY ~ OWNERS GETTING NERVOUS

FINALLY ~ LIGHTS HAVE STOPPED FLASHING!

BY THE SLIMMEST OF A WICKEDLY WISPY WHISKER ~
THUNDER CAT NOSE JUST A HAIR PAST RUFFIAN'S TAKES THE WIN
A CAT OVER A CHEETAH ~ RARE BUT NOT IMPOSSIBLE!

CRUZAN CATCHES THE BODACIOUS BOUQUET

ROAMIN HEADS TO THE SHIRE TO STEAL 'THE PRECIOUS'
