The Great Thoroughbred



The whip rolls off the hind of the great thoroughbred it strides towards the line as the jockeys do find the saddle sits bare with the stirrups up there and the crowds in kind make a noise hard to find the passion of the people the sounds on the track the thunderous hooves that makes you come back from pillar to post it has the most as money changes hands it's all about the man suits of all sizes adorn the crowd ladies in their finery flashing all proud the drinks are a flowing the great game has got you going for the punters track side or at their local the win or the place your in the next race!
