Black Caviar

It was far, far beneath the sun
at the glorious Kentucky Ranch
The a proud horseman, Henry Jones
was called to ride the pride of Kentucky
Black Caviar was his name.
This stud lived every day to out-run all he could
34 wins he had to his name
and now he would ride his last 35th

Black Caviar was practicing for his 35th ride
when a fine 2 year old female 
named Sugar passed caviars' way
Well Caviar couldn't concentrate and kept
running over toward the female
and the horseman was having trouble controlling him
So they waited till all the females
were gone from the field.

This last 35th race would be a result
of Black Caviar's meeting Sugar.
He was all pumped up and ready to run.
The gun shot out and the horses jumped
Black Caviar, jumped the farthest
he hurried around the track effortlessly
an won his 35th and last race. 
After the accolades his trainer took 
him back to see Sugar. They hooked up
and Sugar gave birth to a beautiful
black son and they named him Onyx.
Onyx grew up to win 25 races of his own.
