THE THOROUGHBRED

Beauty and elegance…style and grandeur 
There is no other beast with such magical lure
Their speed and agility moves them out ahead
For this single objective…they’re selectively bred
To reach for the finish…past all other foes
Locked in a dead heat…they race nose to nose
Aggressively struggling to stay in the lead
As each jockey’s grip firms on his avid young steed

Then out from the pack there’s a closer on fire
A maiden obsessed with a goal to aspire 
Her hoofs pound the ground with her nostrils a’flare
The crowd jumps to their feet to see which horse is where
A stretch runner giving one heck of a show
On the bit with such ease toward the home stretch she goes
Then crossing the line while all faces turn blue
As the mare “Least Expected” makes her winner’s debut…

Thank you Maureen! Don't know where this one came from. It must've been in my head somewhere. ;)
