This is a tribute to a thoroughbred racehorse named Bob The Cob. Bob is a simulated horse. A combination of electrons and mystical codes. But he's real to me. And I've had the pleasure of "racing" him for the past three years.
Mr Big B
The author writes a weekly internet column about real life harness horse racing. And he has been lucky enough to own part interest in a few decent pacers over the years. But he loves horse racing of all kinds and has followed both thoroughbred and harness racing for a very long time.
Mr Big B
The scene is Nashville Racetrack, the year two thousand eight.
The final race for Bob The Cob about to leave the gate.
Bob The Cob's a thoroughbred. A millionaire, a star.
Fifty thousand racing fans are here from near and far.
The race is a turf marathon, a long one on the lawn.
The stands buzz with excitement but to Bob it's just a yawn.
Anticipation in the air as nerves begin to fray.
But not for Bob because to him it's just another day.
Bob is owned and trained and bred by a gent named Mars.
He's spent his life in just two places. Racetracks and in bars.
Bob's jockey knows him like a book. His name is Ryan B.
They've teamed up many times before. He suits Bob to a tee.
The gates are sprung. The steeds are off. The fans begin to cheer.
Fourteen runners on their way with Bob way in the rear.
No need to fret. That's big Bob's style. Relax until the end.
Ryan sitting patiently until the final bend.
They're in the stretch and Bob's still last. Now's the time to move.
Ryan gently clucks to Bob to get him in his groove.
The big brown blur is closing fast. Tenth then sixth now third.
Swooping down is Bob The Cob just like a preying bird.
Bob's gotten into second, the leader in his sight.
The chestnut colt along the rail and Bob just to his right.
Bob's lungs and legs are burning now, and Ryan weighs a ton.
But Bob runs on and just won't quit until the race is won.
The chestnut digs down deeper. He won't let Bob get by.
Bob pricks his ears and bares his teeth for one last gallant try.
The crowd is in a frenzy. Two horses race as one.
Side by side and stride for stride until the race is done.
The chestnut edges clear again as they approach the wire.
But Bob has one more final surge, that champion's desire.
Two gallant equine warriors giving it their all.
Two noses flash across the line. Way too close to call.
