At twenty-three six fifty
The ponies glowed with sweat,
THey were striving for the lap flag,
But they hadn't seen it yet.
Big Mom was stretching wide and lean,
Lopin' along with a grin,
Watching the tails of the two ahead,
Brown Derby and Bright Glim.

Now the crowd was getting mad as hell,
And the sky was growing dark,
There was rainclouds gathering overhead,
And in the bettor's hearts.
They knew Big Mom could break away,
They could see it in her eyes.
But she didn't surge, and the bettors sighed,
And hoped their bets was wise.
