"It's all a question of scale. Horses need a big stadium, perhaps a mile in length. This means that horse racing tracks can only be located in the country, making it solely a sport of the wealthy. Why should they have all the pleasure?! That's when I realized you could scale the whole thing down, to maybe one tenth the size, and bring the excitement of animal racing to the middle of America's largest racing-starved urban centers. Los Angeles, New York, Detroit; people didn't crave jobs, they craved racing! And when I realized that you could fit ten Pug dogs on a miniature track, I knew I had something big. Now, five years later, with pug racing being considered for the Olympics, I feel vindicated."
