Wish I had been taping tonight’s race…
I went to Jorvik with Topaz. Bolted out of the gate… ran my golden horse through the golden wheat. Of course, everybody else goes straight over the jumps. So I caught up to a white horse, who was faster than us… except when I hit the slide(s) on that hill! Whee!
I had the interface turned off, so I could see the paddock pretty well. Looked crowded. I went around. The white horse cut across — and got stopped. Sucker! :X Tearing around the houses, the well, down the straightaway… Then a dark horse was coming up behind us.
Not faster than us, though. But! I clipped the car! They passed us. Now it was a chase through Stablebucks, and up the zig-zag. Corner like a jaguar, baby! But we still couldn’t catch up. Then zipping around the fountain, serpentining under the stairs…. suddenly, we cut a sharper turn and came ahead on the inside! We got ahead down the stairs, across the city.
I turned into the wheat fields, but they didn’t. Probably gambling we’d clip the applecarts or the fence — which is a decent gamble, because lord knows I do all the time. But NOT this time! Sailed over the carts and fence and came in FIRST!
