The ninth race of the second season of Britain
horse races was held last night to great attendance.
Three heats of racers competed for the purse, and a chance to advance to the
Heat #1 was won by Celibacy, heat #2 was taken by Shea, and heat #3 was captured
Lining up for the final race of the night, the heat winners were focused, but
tense. Evenly matched, Celibacy took the first race, while Shea rallied for the
second match. Surprising all, Guruk beat Shea for the third match by barely a
nose, leading to a rare winner- take-all fourth race.
When the signal to "GO!" was heard, all three racers gave it thier
best, but a mid-field collision between Celibacy and Shea gave Guruk the space
to take both the lead, and the match!
Guruk of WG took home the purse of twenty thousand gold crowns, and the chance
to participate in the season finals.

among the weekly winners thereafter.

To find the tracks, proceed west from the Cat's Lair Tavern, past the Warrior's
