as is, from the camera, just cropped in photoshop

Weather: Very cloudy… track was a mess until Race 6 when it was upgraded to “good.”

Panning shot of the winner of Race 5. Loved how I caught the jockey biting his lip. For anyone who knows me, you know I do that while riding, too. Bad habits die hard. Once I managed to bite down over a jump on my old pony in a riding lesson and I nearly bit through my tongue!

I am passionate about all horses, but have always had a dream to own and train my own racehorses someday. It probably won’t happen until I retire, if it does happen, but that’s the fun thing about dreams… you can have them even if they aren’t likely to happen. Although, I have been trying to get a plan together for getting friends together after college graduation to go in and buy a share of a racehorse with my boyfriend and I… so maybe it’ll happen sooner than I think :0)

Thanks for your views and comments friends! My first attempt at horse racing photography. Enjoy! ♥
