The jockeys are in the saddle and the horses are ready to go out on to the track at a country race meeting.
This is at Parkes Jockey Club in the Central West of New South Wales, Australia in Spring 1996.
The horse in the foreground, Number 9, was our first thoroughbred purchase. She was Liberated Lady, a 3 year old chestnut filly (by Victory Prince out of Freedom Flower), having her first (and our) very first race.
How did she go? Well that’s another story, which I will tell with a later photo.
