GOOD AFTERNOON & WELCOME TO MIDWEEK MAYHEM
AT TAMPA BAY DOWNS

TODAY WE ARE BEING DRENCHED WITH RAIN BUT NO
AMOUNT OF RAIN WILL DAMPEN THE SPIRITS OF OUR
FERVENT FANS OR RAMBUNCTIOUS RUNNERS!

DEFENDING CHAMP = 'ENERGIZER-BLUNNY' WILL HAVE
8 CONTENTIOUS CHALLENGERS
TRYING TO STOP A REPEAT ''BUNNY-HOP' VICTORY

FEATURE EVENT
BONUS BOTS: BATTLE OF THE SEXES
FEISTY FRISKY FILLYS VS: COURAGEOUS COMPETITIVE COLTS

THEY'RE IN THE GATE & READY TO RUN

A SPEEDY TRIO IS OUT WITH A GOOD LEAD OVER THE REST
ROAMIN ~ DUSTY & EL PRADO TAKE THE FIELD INTO THE TURN

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

THE ORIGINAL TRIO IN THE LEAD HAS NOW CHANGED

DEFENDING CHAMP, 'ENERGIZER-BLUNNY' WITH A FULLY
CHARGED BATTERY HAS TAKEN A 1/2 LENGTH LEAD OVER
ROAMIN & DUSTY AS EL PRADO STUMBLED ON THE TURN
LOSING MOMENTUM & DROPPING FAR BACK QUICKLY

CRUZAN IS NEXT ALONG WITH CIGARSHOP & THUNDER CAT
THIS DUO IS JUST A LENGTH BEHIND THE TRIO IN FRONT
AND TIGER DANCER IS RIGHT THERE AT THEIR TAILS

MEANDERING ALONG FAR BACK, IS RUFFIAN, WHO
APPARENTLY FORGOT TO AWAKEN HER 'INNER-CHEETAH'
SHOWING NO SPEED ~ NO INTEREST AT ALL IN RUNNING

THO HER SECRET 'GENUINE' INTEREST 'AGENDA'
MAY BE HOLDING ON TO HER 2017 CAT HOUSE KEY!

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

THE RACE QUICKLY HAS TURNED INTO A COLT MATCH RACE
FOR BOTS GLORY WITH DEFENDING CHAMP, BLUNNY & ROAMIN

DUSTY DOING HER BEST TO WIN FOR THE FILLYS IS HAVING
A VERY TUFF TIME TRYING TO CATCH THE DYNAMIC DUO
SHE IS AT LEAST 9 LENGTHS BACK & NOT GAINING GROUND

CIGARSHOP IS NEXT, FOLLOWED BY CRUZAN & THUNDER CAT

IT'S ANOTHER 3 LENGTHS BACK TO EL PRADO & TIGER DANCER

AND IF U HAVE BINOCULARS, YOU CAN SEE RUFFIAN!

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

A BODACIOUS BATTLE AT THE FRONT WITH ROAMIN & BLUNNY

DUSTY ALL OUT TRYING TO STOP COLT GLORY
CIGARSHOP RIGHT ON DUSTY'S TAIL

IT'S A FEW LENGTHS BACK TO
CRUZAN, THUNDER CAT, EL PRADO & TIGER DANCER

AND DETESTING THE RAIN, THE MUD, THE DIRT IN HER FACE
IS A WET, MISERABLE, GRUMBLING RUFFIAN
DOING HER BEST 'GRUMPY CAT' IMPRESSION
AS WE ALL KNOW HOW MOST 'FELINE'S' HATE WET FUR!

RUMOR HAS IT, WHEN RUFFIAN SAW THE WEATHER SHE BEGGED
HER TRAINER TO LET HER HAVE 'CAT-SCRATCH-FEVER'
WE SEE HOW THAT REQUEST WENT!

BACK UP AT THE FRONT, THE TWO COMBATIVE COLTS, NECK & NECK
LEAVING NO DOUBT THAT THE COLTS WIN THE BOTS GLORY

BUT ONLY A PHOTO WILL DETERMINE WHICH COLT NOSE IS #1

DUSTY CATCHES THE BODACIOUS BOUQET
CIGARSHOP EASILY STEALS 'THE PRECIOUS'

BUT WHO WILL STAND IN THE WINNER'S CIRCLE?
HOLD ALL TICKETS! TOTE BOARD FLASHING
2 JOCKEYS ON THE PHONES

STEWARDS LISTENING TO OBJECTIONS ~ REVIEWING THE REPLAY
FANS ARE GETTING RESTLESS & ROWDY
BECAUSE OF SUCH A LONG DELAY
PLUS BEING SOAKED TO THE SKIN BY NOW
NOT A CROWD OF HAPPY FANS WITH THIS STORM

FINALLY! THE LIGHTS HAVE STOPPED FLASHING
COULD WE SEE A DEAD HEAT PERHAPS?

THE REPLAY HAS SHOWN THAT A NOSTRIL WHISKER OF ROAMIN
TOUCHED THE WIRE FIRST BY A MILLISECOND OVER {DC} BLUNNY
OUCH! THATS GONNA HURT THE BUNNY!
