Half a Ton of Majestic Energy is a fictional account of the everyday activity and breathtaking drama that occurs at the many thoroughbred racetracks. "Suspense." That is the one word that describes a day at the racetrack.   


"Riders up!" The bugler's call to the post. The Post Parade featuring the aristocratic half-ton animals and their colorfully-garbed courageous jockeys.    


"They're off!" Then the homestretch finale voiced by the excited track announcer; followed by ear-deafening suspense as the finish line is approached. Then the tote board results for the anxious betting public.
