Down The Stretch
Author: Don Fraser


Oh! she looked so good in front of all those colts leading them down the stretch, she was five lengths behind the last horse in the race at the start. But slowly and couragously she got closer to the rest of the horses in front of her. She was fourth running in the back stretch, and stayed in that position while going around the last turn. When she reached the stretch she poured her heart out with detemination. She ran up to third and then to second. She stayed second for a furlong, before she died. The vet. said, she simply bursted her heart, what a couragous filly she was.
