The Story of Hard Spun and the Three Surfaces

Once upon a time, there was a racehorse named Hard Spun
Hard Spun liked to run and he liked to win
From Philly Park to Delaware and the Fair Grounds
Hard Spun would run until he won

But then one day at Oaklawn Park
On a track that was too slick
Hard Spun was not so quick
“I do not like a track that’s slick”
“I do not like to lose a lick “

So Hard Spun and his trainer man
Set out for better footing in a trailer van

At Churchill Downs
Hard Spun frowns

At Pimlico
A definite no

Up at Belmont Park
Hard Spun’s mood was dark

By now the Triple Crown was run
Street Sense won it and had lots of fun

Back at the barn the trainer man was blue
About the Hard Spun we never knew.
