9/5/2009 Sunshine State Silver Cup Finals
In this very talented field, chalk full of talent, and early speed, it was coming down to who was going to break and who wanted to win.
Who was going to be in front? Who was going to drive to the lead? Who was going to take home the title? All of these questions would be answered early on in this race.
As the box came open everyone came out well and it was a herd headed to the finish line the first time around, but driving ahead of the field was Rs Libby Lu. She was the one to take early control of this race and put her nose in front as they reached the first turn. She was in control of this effort as Gabby’s Fiona, Fth Keystone Cop and Topaz Hanna chased behind her. Down the backside she continued her onslaught on the lead and maintained it all the way to the far turn. Coming home there was no sign of slowing down as she breezed to the finish line 3 lengths clear of her nearest competitor. Gabby’s Fiona finished 2nd and there was a dead heat for 3rd as Fth Keystone Cop was caught at the line by the closing Cjc’s Buckshot. Rounding out the field was Topaz Hanna in 5th, La’s Anthony in 6th, Kiowa More Am in 7th and Count Ivan finished last after falling I the 1st turn.
