Came Out Six Lengths Ahead, We Spent The Whole Next Week Getting High


Are there any other good songs about horse racing that aren’t A Fugue For Tinhorns?


  1. Are you saying the George Jones song is not about horse racing?

  2. I’ll throw in a good word for an early Richard Thompson song called, “The Angels Took My Racehorse Away.”

  4. Well, there’s “Going To The Races,” an old bluegrass song. Garcia even played it with Old And In The Way. Then there’s “Molly And Tenbrooks,” another old bluegrass song. I think there’s a lot of bluegrass songs about horse racing, which was the NASCAR of its time.
