“Bettin on Maj Ragain”_

If I were to bet on a horse
I'd bet on Maj Ragain

He's an Iron Horse
with a Gentle Jaw

He overcomes obstacles
Every Day

as if they didn't exist.

Challenges us

the students
the veterans
the people

to be winners
even when we are chosen to lose

even when the odds aren't good

To Maj, I say,

Yamas!
