Round 1, Match 6 produced our closest race yet, but Brego just nudged out Merrylegs to advance.
Today, the last match of Round 1, and it’s a doozy. I honestly don’t know which one I’ll choose, personally.
Round 1, Match 8
Flame v Ashleigh’s Wonder
Two literary chestnuts…that’s about all they’ve got in common.
Flame is the Island Stallion, a counterpart and rival to the Black Stallion, has a completely incoherent backstory but is completely badass nonetheless. (Also, it continued incoherent – aliens? vampire bats? wtf?)
Ashleigh’s Wonder is the original star of the Thoroughbred series: raised by Ashleigh Griffin, she becomes a superlative racehorse and the foundation mare for the book series’ racing stars.

My heart can’t even take this, but one of these two redheads will stay home, and one will advance.
