Race Day Playlist

As on every night before a race day,  last night I set my sound system to wake me up with my Race Day playlist.  Comprised of songs that I could find from the Secretariat soundtrack, it included

Call to Post by Metal Patriots
It’s Who You Are by AJ Michalka
I’ll Take You There by The Staples Singers
Oh Happy Day by Edwin Hawkins

With Rikki Tikki Taxi’s racing debut today at Remington Park, I woke up a little sad that I didn’t figure out a way to get to Oklahoma City for today’s big event.  I quickly remembered that we have a huge day on Wednesday, so instead of sulking I decided to jump out of bed and get serious about this playlist.

The task was simple since Sara Dacus and The Track Philosopher already did the real work!  Sara’s post The Ultimate Horse Racing Playlist and The Track Philosopher’s Top 10 Horse Race Songs provided plenty of material for me to tune up my own play list!  Rest assured the wake up alarm will be set for our sixty-second race day on Wednesday, and this upgraded playlist will be the new early morning tradition for race days.
