This is your call at West Lothian Racetrack. I am your caller, fudgemeister.
At the 1/4 turn Susan Boyle takes the early lead over Hilty. In 3rd place Groban, Connick in 4th, Jenkins on the move in 5th place. Botti is next to last with Placido Jr. dead last. Does not look like Sr. is rubbing off on Jr(
At the half Susan still has the lead, but that pesky Hilty is sticking right with her. Connick has taken over 3rd from Groban who trails him by a neck. The rest of the field remains the same--Jenkins, Botti, and Jr Domingo.
At the 3/4 turn Susan is fighting with all she has but she cannot pull away from Hilty. Groban and Connick still fighting it out for 3rd. Same order for the rest of the field.
(All of a sudden, a chant is going up at the track.)
I do not know what is going on, but everyone here is screaming "DO NOT PLAY #9, STOP WITH SUSAN!!
It seems to be working!! Susan Boyle is pulling away! She is flying! It is as if Hilty is standing still!
At the finish, we have Susan Boyle pulling away. Hilty rode her coattails for a long while but was able to hold off a surge from Groban. Connick took 4th, with Jenkins, Botti, and Domingo JR finishing in that order.
Once again, those amazing fans helped to put Susan over the top!
