And they are off… I spent Sunday at the track with fellow blogger Mark Bernard. It was a lot of fun and despite the rain a great day for photography. I almost think the rain and the mud made some of the images even more interesting. Below is an image of the horses rounding the bend before the home stretch.
In this other image, “Lucky 13” shows the 13 horse leading the pack en route to the finish line. The race is an amazing way to spend a day and with friends it is even better.
So, what happens to the muddy horses? They get rinsed off, of course. This last shot for today’s blog is the workers rinsing off one of the horses after the race.
