Jockey Club out of tune

MY personal form guide shows that the two most performed tunes by those big bands the Royal Hong Kong Jockey Club wheels in from time to time to entertain the horses are Born Free and The Theme From Exodus.

In fact, if I'm correct, at a recent race meeting, The Theme From Exodus was performed thrice. And with much gusto.

Does the playing of this tune with such frequency have any veiled significance to punters? If so, I think we should be told.
