Dolphin Racing June 9, 2007

OK, I know this is the weekend of bizarre ideas, but I got to swim with bottlenose dolphins today at Discovery Cove and watch them perform at Sea World, and I’m wondering why dolphin racing isn’t an established sport.  After all, we race horses, camels, and dogs.  Dolphins are magnificent marine mammals — not only intelligent and social, but also extremely fast and easily capable of carrying people through the water.  I even watched a pair take a harness and pull a man standing on their backs.  It’s a wonder that none of the Arabian billionaires have stepped up to sponsor and train their own pod for harness racing.
