I have raced standardbreds my whole life ( sulky horses ) and I understand what a hero is. I dont have much money, im still looking for my million dollar winner, but I have a filly whole goes to the races week in and week out, and lives to race. She gets excited, prances proud and puffs her chest out when we get to the track. She has won 4 out of her last 6, and she knows. She wins $800 dollars every time she wins, which is not much after feeding, vitamins,shipping and stall rent, but she is my seabiscuit. Every time she hitd the track she is all about racing, and she is trying to win for me and herself. She was hurt when I got her, but she showed that competetive spark. Now she has the desire, and at a local level everyone knows her name, she is very tough. Sometimes a little sore, or sick, but she still fights through it to do her best. Ive never even had to touch her with a whip. he is all heart. Depressed economy, troops overseas (which I also did, desert storm, Id still be there if I wasnt disabled) sports figures, who are supposed to be role models, steroids, murders, sodomy, rape. Never see a horse do that. I know you say what about that trainer that does the unscrupulous? Well go look at a couple of the harness racing sites. They are cleaning up their act, and making it horse friendly. You have to understand that you see horses racing year round, dead of winter or midsummer, this is what they love. Its bred into them, and they are happiest when they are doing what they do. I have a farm and when I have horses out in the paddock and they see another on the track they get revved right up ready to go. Even the ones that are retired. Pleasure horses at the farm dont respond the same way. They just want to eat. There is nothing better then watching a majestic horse in the middle of summer in full stride, glistening like patent leather, muscles rippling, nostrils flaring,granted id rather drive than watch, but to each his own. Horse racing is the only sport that an average persoon with average money, can be a participant, ive paid seabiscuit prices and made good money. its all in the heart. No contracts, no holdouts, just raw desire. Its like the superbowl everytime my filly hits the track for me. Horse racing is the only thing keeping me going. Iam from Buffalo and dont know who is on our sports team from year to year, but I know that I will have this filly around for a long time.These animals are my heros, like Seabiscuit, stock market crash ww2 and prohibition, the American people needed something to cheer, and so did our boys overseas. 40 million people listened to or watched war admiral get his ass kicked by a little runt with the big heart. That is what all our sports figures have forgotten, now they are all $$$. These are the purest most majestic atheletes, and I have more admiration for them than any human athelete!!
