The Fight for Right

I want to devote some thought to the concept of sharing the wealth in our industry.  We need to fight for the folks who work day in, day out, week in, week out, 365 days a year.  We have to improve the lives of those working in our business and share prosperity when it comes our way. 

It seems somehow a bit crazy when a groom at a track in North America or Europe or anywhere is personally caring for a horse that has gotten to be worth about ten or twenty million dollars or more, and that groom is not earning enough money to take care of his family. I sometimes wonder how the owners of such a wonderful racehorse can sleep at night knowing that such a situation exists. Well, maybe some owners don't realize such a problem exists and this thought will keep them up at night.

We are not alone in the history of the world in facing problems.  It is certainly always timely to get involved and fight to make everything we can about our industry the best it can be.

We have a great many problems facing our industry.  If we think about them we can solve them.  Make a personal heroic and symbolic effort to make things change for the better.  You really don't need to be Superman to help.

Remember, "The Time is Always Now."

The "Lion of Lucerne" honors the memory of the heroic Swiss Guards who fell defending the Tuileries in Paris in 1792. The sculpture Bertel Thorwaldsen designed what is now the oldest remaining monument in Switzerland. Lukas Ahorn carved the nine-yard long lion, shown protecting the French fleur-de-lis even as he dies.

Fighting to the End for Good Causes
