There is somebody

There is Somebody

By Bill Varone

We pick our races

We pick our program or method

We sit and think alone

We make decisions we feel are correct

We enter our lines or mark our forms based on what we feel is best.

There is Somebody inside each of us

Our method asks us to make decisions

We decide what we need to do

We decide how to read our programs

We make the call

We are the one we do this for.

We all have a desire to win:

for some it is fierce

for some it’s for fun

for some it’s a job:

Some of us have a wish to make it our job,

Some, to earn a living, wishing it were not such a grind.

For many of us it’s an escape:

a chance to dream

a chance to be the one in charge of something

to be able to be good at something.

Maybe life has made you feel that everyone else is better at everything -

To be able to do well is to win

We have that ability to be Somebody

even if it means being able to walk down to the store with a lightness in your heart,

to be happy to strangers

to feel a bit better about yourself.

Fill in the last race on your 20 race cycle sheet and see the nice profit YOU made

Now go out and show the world the Somebody in you who's a winner!

We all work hard in our own way

There is Somebody in you whom you’re doing this for...

It’s not easy -

if you’re like me, that Somebody in you has cried

that Somebody has wanted to give it all up.

But stay sharp: the real person in you that wants to win is alive

Work hard: tell yourself you are going to make it

Show yourself the Winner inside.

We all feel the hard times we live in today

Your family and loved ones might wonder if you can do it

Each of us has the tools to win

We have the ability to do great things -

All we need to do is read the Follow Up:

Read, listen and watch

Learn how to win.

There is Somebody – it’s You,

You can win!

Horse Player Personified!

Well Done! Most experienced handicappers have been there and done that! You were able to write down the thoughts of many horseplayers as they have gotten their education from the difficult yet great past time that handicapping is.
Thanks for sharing these well expressed profound thoughts!

Thanks, Bill.
Your words have made me know why I'm a horse player, the words I could never find to explain why. It's a great feeling, perfect.
Every horse player should carry a copy.
I'm very proud of you. Thanks.
