Brian West, radio host at Y108, turned on his announcing voice during the third race at Flamboro Downs on Sunday evening for another round of Announcer Idol.

As pacers Comeonandgetsome and Nephin battled back and forth on top for most of the mile, West made light of the challenges a newbie faces in the booth while calling the action in his version of an announcer's accent.

"This looks like it's pretty tight here with four, Comeonandgetsome, and the other guy that's right beside him...If only the horse would get out of the way I could see who it is...Oh there, it is number seven, Nephin! They are neck and neck!"

As the field turned for home, West hollared, "Boy, here we go! The top of the stretch...Is this the home stretch? What kind of stretch is it? I don't know, but it's about to come to a very close, tight end."
