Star for that one.

It was totally just a Chinese Lantern though....

Or Swamp gas...

Or hell... It is horses... Could have just been gas.

The horses are coming out of the last turn and are approaching the final ¼ pole with the #12 Tobedetermined hanging on to a tenuous lead over the #4 Martiallaw. It appears you can forget about the #1 and the #8 as they have both pulled up. They must have read Yahoo Finance.

They are beginning to go shoulder-to-shoulder for the final charge to the wire. The #10 Newmadridsameastheoldmadrid has begun to fall back as has the #2 FalseflagPhil. #9 Jesusurreal is trying to find room to maneuver around the #5 Cometatyou who refuses to go away. Now we have the #6 Nuketilluglow making a late charge from the middle.

What’s this?
Hold on!
What’s this?

Now we have the #3 Nuttintoseehere making a bold move to get outside. However, there is a lot of real estate for this pony to make up.

Oh my, the #4 Martiallaw has begun to fade back into the pack. And now we have the #3 passing tired horses left and right from the outside with the #6 making a desperate play and running neck and neck now with the #12 Tobedetermined. And I don’t know if there is enough race track left for Nuttintoseehere to make it to first however.

Oh…my!

I might have spoken too soon as Nuttintoseehere absolutely has rockets on its hoofs as it is positively flying from the outside. Tobedetermined and Nuketilluglow are neck and neck trying to stave off the #3 with mere yards to the finish.

Nuttintoseehere stretching, Nuketilluglow refusing to yield and Tobedetermined trying hard to go wire to wire.

And at the wire it’s…it’s…it’s…my Gawd!!!!!!!

The #3 Nuttintoseehere has done it!

The #3 has done it! By an entire length, the #3 has done it!

Nuttintoseehere pulls off the most stunning stretch run I’ve ever seen ladies and gentlemen! Oh my! Words simply cannot describe the power and patience of this magnificent horse. When all appeared to be doom and gloom, the #3 Nuttintoseehere pulled out all the stops at the end of the day and won it by a length.

Yes folks, it appears the birds will still be chirping tomorrow, just like they did today.

Definitely a race to make the old pulse take it up a notch or two.

Please be sure to hold all tickets until the race is declared Official. Please be sure to hold all tickets!

Well I certainly hope everyone had a bit of tongue-in-cheek fun with this. Thanks for all the replies. I hope you had the winner and if you didn’t buck up. Things could have been worse. (Like the #6 Nuketilluglow winning. Yikes!)

I will now allow players overnight to post objections to the finish before posting the Official Results and payoffs tomorrow morning.

Cheers!

Most exciting pony play I've ever attended! The weather was fantastic...the VIP seating in the boxes, ever so elegant.
The crowd exuberant and a sheer delight.

What more can I say. I am certainly looking forward to the next doomsday race you sponsor


I will save my tickets as a keepsake of this fine, fine race. Kudos to YOU for such a memorable thread.


Saving up my AT$ for the next one,

Des

Was fun indeed. It almost sound like you are disappointed no disaster struck though...

Well, it's morning so I'll need to check around the Internet to see if I can call the #3 the official winner.

Hang on! MSN.com's top story is whether or not Chaz Bono was eliminated from Dancing WIth The Stars.

Hmmmmm. Guess there's no need to check any further than that.

It's official...the #3 Nuttintoseehere is the winner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*****************************************************************

Payout (in Horse Racing terms) is AT$4.00 for every AT$2.00 bet on the #3.

In exact terms (no "takeout" here, unlike RL horse racing) you can multiply your bet on #3 by 2.12

Let's see, I bet AT$350 on #3, therefore...WOOT...AT$742 rattling around my pockets. That deserves a song. C'mon all you folks that bet the #3; you know the words. Sing along...

For those of you who bet against the #3 I have a special song picked out for you too

I bet 8,357 AT$ so my pay out is AT $17,716.84 cents.

Woo! I be rich!

Double or nothing, what do you say?

You know at first I had no intention of ever repeating this sort of thing.

However, I just got a great idea for another horse race from another thread. Maybe...just maybe.

Cheers!
