    SPORT: DOG SLED RACING

    Script is copyright Reuters Limited. All rights reserved

    Background: A HIGHLIGHT OF THE WINTER SPORTS SEASON IN THE AMERICAN MID-WEST CITY OF ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA, IS A DOG SLED RACE WITH THE CHILDREN AS RIDERS.

    THE CHILDREN OF ST. PAUL ARRIVE FOR THE RACE IN STYLE -- USUALLY BY CAR -- TO REGISTER FOR THE EVENTS. THEN THERE ARE LAST MINUTE ADJUSTMENTS TO HARNESS AND SLED BEFORE THEY LINE UP ON THE HALF-MILE TRACK ON THE ICE OF LAKE COMO.

    THEY'RE OFF AND SKIDDING WITH FIVE BRIGHT SILVER DOLLARS AWAITING THE WINNER. THE TEMPERATURE IS FIVE DEGREES BELOW ZERO (-5 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT), BUT THE HOT COMPETITION KEPT THEM WARM.

    SOMETIMES, A FEW OF THE DOGS LOST THE SCENT AND THE ENTHUSIASM FOR RACING AND A FEW OF THE SLEDS BECAME SNARLED UP. BUT THAT IS ALWAYS TO BE EXPECTED -- EVEN IN THIS CANINE CLASSIC.

    ANOTHER EVENT IS THE TANDEM CLASSIC. A FEW WERE TWIN DOGS, OTHERS WERE OF THE "MIX AND MATCH" VARIETIES -- AND THE RACE WAS NO LESS EXCITING BECAUSE OF THIS.
