With each new day in Africa, a gazelle wakes up knowing he must outrun the fastest lion or perish. At the same time, a lion stirs and stretches, knowing he must outrun the fastest gazelle or starve.

Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum

Football is only once a week. NASCAR is once a week. Those sports are insanely popular. Horse racing is oversaturated.
