4am the workers and the horses are all walking out of the stable. Each and every one of these horses knows what their job is even if they arenít the fastest on the track they will give you there all. Some may or may not make it in this world of racing but the ones that do will make lots of money and have a lot to prove when up against the bigger and better horses. Some of these horses are born great and others work to be great and some just never reach greatness. This is the reality of racing a Thougherbred in this world.
This morning there is a horse that would catch anyoneís eye, not just with his beauty and muscle but with his personality and speed that he brings to the track. This stallion is bred to be the best, both parents are Kentucky derby winners, and have won many other big time races. The day he was born he was worth a fortune and now that he has proved he can run with the big dogs at the young age of 2 Ĺ he is worth 10times that. Lifeís Streak of Greatness was his name and they called him Streaker in the barn. Streakerís life was just starting and he had a ways to go but he was going to prove the world wrong in the end.
(will add more day to day just started this today)
This morning workout would be nothing for this horse; he could run a mile and still keep going if you would let him. He was only running a ĺ mile because tomorrow was his maiden race and everyone expected a win out of him. The other horses that would be running there didnít have a chance against him! So his jockey Alex was following the trainers orders to take it easy today, he hated to do this because he had to hold Streaker back from going too fast. So the trainer gives them the okay to go so they take off and the clock is ticking. Nothing was expected out of him this morning but he still gave it his all. Alex could hold him back he just fought the bit and ran his best. Once done everyone could not wait to see him run tomorrow!
