trainer’s instructions:

Red Bunny will be on the lead
but try to stay within a length.
start moving on the turn
and let her go at the head of the stretch.
she hasn’t learned to change leads well
and tends to lug in
but I think we’ve corrected that.
she doesn’t like the whip
so just show it to her.
we’re reading 5 to one
and we’ve got a hundred win on her
for you.
How’s Jenny?
still in India?
I’d like to get the hell out of California
myself.
maybe we’ll run her at Belmont.
all right.
you know what to do.
see you in the circle.

I want to bring all of Bukowski's poems online and make then freely available. This means hundreds of hours of work to retype over 1,000 of his poems from the original manuscripts. Your donations will help support this work.
