Tonight at about 9PM CET the First ever Sosarian Horse Race event took place! Right after the auction a small group of us gathered on the fields behind the auction house. To many competitors’ surprise, they did not find a huge race-track…. Just a field and some cloth. Suspicion arose! Right until Geoffrey Blake turned to the crowd and explained them how exactly the race would work. Instead of racing actual horses, the point of the race was to drag&drop a wooden steed – 1 tile at the time – to the finish line! We had 8 people competing, which meant 4 races to begin with. The results from this first round (first name=winner): Killer vs Kingsley Bex the Bee vs Patrick Ferrut vs Ama Leto vs Mus That left us with 2 semi-finals: Killer vs Bex the bee and Ferrut vs Leto. By this time, it seemed like the green horse (there was a blue one and a green one) was enchanted somehow as it got most lucky in the races… However, Leto managed to loose even with the green horse ! The winner of the other duo was Bex the Bee, who – so I’ve heard – actually works with horses in real life Seeing as Killer left prematurely, Leto won third place by default. The race between Bex and Ferrut however was still on! And a fierce match it was! After showing himself a true gentleman and letting miss Bex the choice of horse-colour, Ferrut took a quick start but … sadly he couldn’t keep up the pace. By the time the last corner was in sight, Ferrut was at least 4 tiles behind on Bex and he found no way to make up for that in the sprint to the finish. So, in conclusion: Third place – Leto! Prize: Stuffy Horse & Bronze Medal Second place – Ferrut! Prize: Spring clean-up horse barding & Silver Medal First place – Bex the Bee! Prize: 5 million gold & Gold Medal Thank you all for coming and hope to see you at one of our upcoming events! P.S. For those who – just like me – are wondering about the medals: they came in the form of an eagle statue in gold, dull copper and bronze, with a nice inscription “Grand Sosarian Horse Race ***th place”.
