One final game to close out the evening. Several gamers departed, leaving Steve, Jules, Kurt, R.J., Jim and me for some horse racing action in Royal Turf.
Race one saw Earl Gray get stuck in the blocks for an extended period of time. However, when he finally got going, he moved with the speed of lightning. It wasn’t enough to catch Caramello or Sahara Wind, however, both of whom enjoyed fast starts and held on to claim the 1 – 2 spots.
Race 1: Steve 650, Kurt 450, R.J. 450, Greg 200, Jules 100, Jim –100
Nougat enjoyed the fast start in race 2, while Earl Gray once again fell asleep at the gates. Once he finally woke up, Kurt declared that he was “crazy-fast … once he gets past the starting line”! Nougat rode his fast start to victory, followed by Sahara Wind and Red Fox.
Race 2: Steve 950, Kurt 900, Jules 600, Jim 400, R.J. 350, Greg 100
In the final race, Earl Gray redeemed himself, zipping around the track and capturing the victory. Nougat and Sahara Wind coasted into second and third place, respectively.
Finals: Steve 1650, Kurt 1500, Jim 1300, R.J. 1150, Jules 600, Greg 200
