Race Five Begins...
Race Five on the card, our only allowence of the day, his ready to start in just 5 minutes. There was a slight delay due to a horse from the last race getting lose and dumping his rider.

|3||Raven Relic||Cayt M.||2|
|2||SSF Ideal Song||Lily||3|
The favorite Raven Relic, a filly who is looking good and has the 3 spot to start from. SSF Ideal Song the very close second favorite, having a good inside position as well as coming off a show in the Redemnition raceday. The third favorite in this field of eleven is Boomerang. All are in now and the last horse, Accented Gold, is loading....
And They're Off!
OD's Real Quiet out sharpy in the 5 spot. SSF Charming Trick also out fast and in second. Boomerang and SSF Ideal Song out next, followed by Windsor in 5th and Raven Relic. Ch. SSF Absolute Zero, Thunder Dove, Surely Handsome, and Accented Gold. Accented Gold appears to have stumbled badly coming out of the gate, but continues to run. SSF Charming Trick tries to take an early lead but OD's Real Quiet holding him off easily. Solid fractions in the slop, 24 for the quarter.
SSF Charming Trick dropping back on the rail! Thunder Dove being asked for run. And Surely Handsome going 5 wide around on the outside! Accented Gold moving into 9th now after a bad start. Raven Relic breezing along in the mud! OD's Real Quiet still in the lead. Right behind is Surely Handsome, then back 2 to SSF Ideal Song, Thunder Dove, and Raven Relic. Raven Relic showing her strength! This filly is speeding down along the rail. Windsor is dropping back to 6th and the rest of the field is way back.
Coming around the turn, it's still OD's Real Quiet. Next is Thunder Dove, challenging on the outside. Surely Handsome, driving through the mud like a tank. Raven Relic still holding 4th. SSF Ideal Song saving ground in 5th. They're approaching the stretch!
And down the stretch they come! OD's Real Quiet begins to give up his lead! This day has been all about the closers! And here comes Raven Relic! She's firing up the inside with SSF Ideal Song right on her heals! Thunder Dove gives up her lead as well. Surely Handsome making a game effort wide on the outside. SSF Charming Trick completely blocked off by Windsor and Boomerang. A furlong to go! All the horses are almost completely covered in mud! SSF Ideal Song puts on a burst of speed and pulls away! Raven Relic trys to catch her but fails! And it's SSF Ideal Song, Thunder Dove, Raven Relic, and OD's Real Quiet, with Surely Handsome a far 5th.
But WAIT! OD's Real Quiet is disqualified! The stewards report that the jocky whipped Thunder Dove in the strech! Surely Handsome moves up to take 4th.
