Track: Churchill Downs
Date: May 7, 2009
Race: 5 – Maiden for Maidens, Fillies Two Years Old
Length: 4 1/2 furlongs on the dirt
Camera: Canon Rebel XT w/ Canon 75-300mm lens
Weather: Very cloudy… track was a mess until Race 6 when it was upgraded to “good.”
This is the jockey who won the Kentucky Oaks and Kentucky Derby just a few days ago up on a horse trained by his brother. Cool jockey. I’m rooting for him if he rides Mine That Bird in the Preakness. I think he’s a good fit for the horse. If Rachel Alexandra runs in the Preakness, I think any jockey can ride her, but Mine That Bird needs Calvin. Will be exciting to see!
Thanks for your views and comments friends! My first attempt at horse racing photography. Enjoy! ♥
