Facing The Music
- Written by Bwana Bwana
Bwana called the tune: an ascending scale of 2-3-4-5 laps. The trick was to try to keep the same pitch through the whole arpeggio. After the 5-lapper, many of the runners were wheezing like an abused squeezebox and crying like a deranged street-corner hurdy-gurdy.
On a low note, Bwana was disappointed with some of tomorrow's milers who weren't there polishing their bows for the last big race. We hope that Tara Murray can still have a major achievement with her minor investment. We hope Marty Klanchar's rest leaves him augmented for tomorrow's run, rather than with diminished stamina. As for the rest of the no-shows, all Bwana can say is that they'll be in treble next time they show up at the track!
