What it takes to be in the racing business

While at work today someone had asked me what I do when it comes to exercising and where I go, or where do I live while working at a race track. I told them while working at a race track at canterbury last year I was living in the dorms above the horse barn, so basically your sleeping with the horses and the dorm was all cememnt, had one window, no tvs you had to buy dish! Also they asked what about food. I then explained to them that we either had our pots to cook food or you went to the kitchen to buy food or you eat a lot of fast food I guess! Also I told them while going other places you sleep in tack rooms, or they might have separate dorms but you still live by a barn.

The expression I got from the guy was the most funny expresson I could possible imagine. He then asked you must really love the sport of horse racing to even live in those kind of environments for I would never see him living in something in those terms. I thought about it and my answer was horse racing is who I am! I might not be wehre I want to be right now but I'm still going for my goal, and eventually do plan on earning that. Its a sport you never get bored with for your always learning something and you never have to put up with a person talking back to you, which of course you do have those people, but a horse doesn't talk back to you, they just might buck you off ha! But they are an amazing animal and thats why I love it! I thought I'd share that with you guys cause after you think about it and how much your willing to take and dont' car what environment you may live in racing is what you call WINNING the LOTTERY
