    Cub Reporters 2018

    A little catching up to do. January through April will appear in the next post, truncated...and May when it closes. And, as always, the monthly winners will be noted below throughout the year.

    Winnering Nags:

    January: The opening month belongs to Musterion!
    February: PJ owns the backstretch to take this month's crown. Congrats PJ!
    March: Jacob finds the winner's circle for the first time! Congrats Jacob!
    April: Must, glory, and Judge Rightly can't be separated at the wire and share the showers (of April, stop it). Congrats!
    May: JR will not be denied as he reports his way to a near record margin of victory...and to the victor belong the spoiled. Congrats Judge Rightly!
    June: Congrats as a glitched June belongs to Judge Rightly!
    July: belongs to Judge Rightly and his dead horse! Congrats and RIP, respectively!
    August:
    September:
    October:
    November:

    Okay, so we've lost a boat load of posts over the last few days around here. I'm just not going to try to reinvent that wheel. But I will tell you how May turned out.

    Race Report!

    Out of the gate and into the first turn it's all Judge Rightly (5), WoZ two lengths back and fading (3) with a straggling field of seven nags trailing. Through the first turn and well into the backstretch JR (7) continues to hold his lead as CathCruc (4) pulls ahead of the pack to sit three lengths off his flank in second, with Right Divider, WoZ, and a emerging challenger Apple 7 neck and neck one length back (3).

    In and out of the second turn and down the home stretch they go and look at JR in full lather as Apple powers past WoZ and RD to go down to the wire with CC for 2nd, but no one is going to catch JR!

    And at the wire it's Judge Rightly (12) with command, a staggering eight lengths in front of CC and Apple, whose late tie pushes the rest of the field out of the money!

    May belongs to JR! Congrats!

    Race Report

    Out of the starting gate, down the front stretch and well into the turn (hey, a lot of that disappeared) and it's Judge Rightly uncomfortably in the lead (4) with must and Right D stiff neck and neck two lengths back. No one is in a particular hurry, though everyone is huffing. GM, CM, and Ktoyou constitute the rest of the meandering pack with a chance to contend.

    by a neck, or nick in time, or I can ban some bad people, just do not ever do it. Ask Knight. He has a two headed horse, but does not ride him.

    I'm not paying attention to the big guy until he ponies up.

    Free ponies. I said it then and I remain unwavering. Not even a little wavering.

    Race Report

    And down the stretch to the wire it was JR and RD trading places, back and forth with a comfortable lead on a trailing Must. And at the wire....Judge Rightly by a length (6) with RD taking second, handily out in front of Must (2) in third with a field of stopped nags refusing to cross.

    Congrats as a glitched June belongs to Judge Rightly!

    I put my Mod stamp on thread so it doesn't get frivolously reported, as this does discourage frivolous reports.

    I've been doing it for a few years. It started when chrys got me thinking about how often I used the feature. Several years ago it turned out I used it a lot more than I realized. So I created the first Cub Reporters to keep me mindful of my own proclivity. It worked. Along the way, using the horse race reporting bit drew a following and since everyone was taking it in the spirit of the thing, I kept at it.

    Haven't had enough time of late to do it the way it should be done. Should course correct next month. Sorry you missed it prior.
