"Big Red" was written by one of my favorite songwriters, Daniel Crabtree. The song describes a historically famous horserace that involved a horse nicknamed "Big Red" (Triple Crown winner Secretariat).  The song also represents what sheer focus and determination can do for one facing challenges to achieve goals. There is a lot to be said for starting out slow but coming in strong at the finish line.
