Program Notes

Referring to the winning steed, this exhilarating piece lasts not much more than a typical one-mile horse race and depicts the event from the observer's perspective: the initial burst of energy at the starting gate and the ensuing excitement approaching the first turn; the suspense as the race develops along the far stretch and the increasing drama as the pack rounds the final turn and heads down the stretch for the big finish.
