Why this bloke’s fancy with horseracing?

All over the world

Twenty-four hours a day

Horse racing is unfurled

What more can I say?

 

The competition is contagious

The pageantry majestic

With decorum that’s never outrageous

Makes the ambience electric

 

The owner, the jockey and the trainer

All these play their part in this story

With the goal of winning a no brainer

This cannot happen without the horse in all of its glory

 

Where else can a handicapper and some luck

With one winning ticket I suppose

Go from a commoner to a king, with a buck

And on this I must close

One thing is for sure

No matter the season

The sport of kings with all of its allure

Any from above would suffice as my reason
