The horses are lining up at the gate
The jockeys are getting in the zone
Cheering of the crowd fills the air likes it’s World War One
The horses waiting impatiently
The sound of the gates roaring open
Everywhere spectators speaking as fast as they can.
The crowd on the edge of their seats
The horses are soaring round the last corner
The horse and jockey can almost taste the victory
Crowds stand up as the winner crosses the line
The jockey and horse take their victory
But every horse and jockey think to themselves
You don’t need to cross the finish line to be a winner.
