Race Six Begins...
Welcome back. Race six is ready to start, as the horses are approaching the gate. A fair-sized field of racers for this second 3 year olds maiden. The top three favorites are:
|1||Geek Rock Chick||Aia||4|
|3||Risen Noble||Cayt M.||6|
Looks like the filly Coffee Break is the pick of the crowd. Geek Rock Chick with some nice support and Risen Noble a close third choice. They're in the gate....
And They're Off!
SSF Storm Of Angels, Quiet Dark, RF's Midnight Sunrise off to an early lead. Quiet Dark is on the outside and SSF Storm Of Angels starts to drop back, hugging the rail. Goldstar Miner and Coffee Break out in 4th and 5th, followed by Spitfire, Risen Noble and SSF Cash On Command. Geek Rock Chick in a rated 7th. Naughty But Nice completes the field of 10 as they head around the first turn.
The field is starting to spread out with Quiet Dark pulling away! And pulling away impressively! SSF Storm Of Angels still held back in third. Quiet Dark really setting the pace here! And it's 23 and change for the quarter and 26 and change for the half! What speed in the mud! RF's Midnight Sunrise is holding 2nd. Risen Noble looking to move up in forth. Back three lengths to Spitfire, enjoying an easy trip and back another two to Goldstar Miner and Coffee Break, locked in thier own speed duel. Geek Rock Chick is sitting cool behind them, now in 8th. SSF Cash On Command in 9th, and Naughty But Nice seeming unable to find his stride still in last, now 8 lengths off the leaders.
RF's Midnight Sunrise moves up to press for the lead. Quiet Dark still not giving an inch! The colt continuing to set startling fractions in the mud. SSF Storm Of Angels looks like he's trying to gain on the two leaders. Risen Noble coming alive in 4th and extending her stride! At the back, Geek Rock Chick making her move! Goldstar Miner still in 5th with Coffee Break right behind in 6th.
Down the stretch they come! RF's Midnight Sunrise dropping back and Quiet Dark losing ground to SSF Storm Of Angels. This colt is has been stalking the leaders, and now he's ready to say good bye to them! SSF Storm Of Angels making a huge move on the outside! He's gone 2 wide and now has the lead! RF's Midnight Sunrise continues to run in third! Now Geek Rock Chick is moving up but behind a wall of horses. Risen Noble desperately trying to catch SSF Storm Of Angels, with Goldstar Miner right behind him, making up incredible ground. Spitfire in 6th still on the rail having no where to go!
Quiet Dark continues to drop back, blocking Risen Noble's move on the outside. Coffee Break finally kicks in and quickly takes 4th! Goldstar Miner is flying! His ears swept back, this colt is pouring his heart in to it! He lunges out and bumps RF's Midnight Sunrise on his way by! He's also out of time! At the wire, SSF Storm Of Angels takes the win with a length back to Goldstar Miner. RF's Midnight Sunrise the strong third, Coffee Break late to close in 4th. Risen Noble manages a 5th and Geek Rock Chick not being able to go 5 wide around horses stuck in 6th. The rest of the field way back. They're's gonna be a complaint issued on Goldstar Miner's move in the stretch, folks, lets wait for the final results.
Sure enough, Goldstar Miner was disqualified, and RF's Midnight Sunrise takes the 2nd spot!

||RF's Midnight Sunrise
Quite the victory for SSF Storm Of Angels today, obviously the off track to his liking. RF's Midnight Sunrise and Goldstar Miner making a good showing. A bit of an upset in that none of the favorites placed on the board. The rain has died down just a bit, and the track is being harrowed for the next race on the card, the first stakes race of the day... the grade three I Have Heart Stakes. Stay tuned!
