A Day at the Races
And they’re off! The horses break from away from the starter’s flag, and jockeys settle their mounts and prepare for the first fence. Swoosh. They’re up, over, and heading for more. Thump-thump. Thump-thump. The horses gallop over the miles of lush turf and look for an edge.
Hooray! Cheer for your favorite, as he angles for the lead and the jockey looks for more, just yards from the finish line. And the winner is…
Pleasantly exhausted, horse and jockey head to the winner’s circle to collect victory’s spoils, including annual prize money worth nearly $5 million.
The real winner in steeplechase horse racing is the fan. Spectators get a show rivaling college basketball for excitement, baseball for history, and a Broadway play for class. All while providing the perfect social backdrop for any occasion.
