Fetching the Donkey
Jesus directs his disciples to fetch a donkey. This event is likely in preparation to the formal entry.
Fetching the Donkey occurs before the formal Triumphal entry and placing this hour depends on finding a match to other parallel stories.
In this case the choice is the appearance of Gabriel to Zechariah, 490 days before Jesus' birth. At 210 days to the hour this match would be in the 3rd hour before the triumphal entry.

Day/Year Passion Fulfillment
United States President Obama traveled to Martha's Vineyard for his first vacation while president. While vacationing long time United States Senator Teddy Kennedy died of brain cancer. The death sparked sudden preparations for a funeral that would be held in Boston a few days later. Kennedy's body would be buried in Washington DC after being escorted around Boston with massive crowds of mourners.
The fulfillment at this point is the "fetching of the donkey" the identification of the Donkey, the Democrat, that would be used for the journey to Washington.
A few hours before theoretical, Barack Obama went to play golf at Farm Neck Golf Club on Martha's Vineyard. Obama had been on Martha's Vineyard since Sunday on a vacation.
He had begun the day with a tennis game played with his wife.
Of note, UBS bank CEO Robert Wolf, Chicago physician Eric Whitaker and White House aide Marvin Nicholson rounded out the foursome.
There was a PGA member, Michael Zoll, who watched Obama warm up and gave the press a rundown on Obama's game.
The prophetic story takes place at Bethphage, transliterated BYTPGA, or more literally, "House-PGA." Adding some glue words for the English ear, "House-of-the-PGA." What today would be called a golf-course.
Martha's house may be where Jesus always stayed while in Jerusalem. There are Biblical principles about always staying at the same place when visiting a town. Jesus would have followed that principle here.
That Obama went to Martha's Vineyard is likely a prophetic match to Martha in scripture.
