Race Day part 2

The grooms were probably wondering who this crazy lady with a camera was, taking a hundred pictures of them walking their horses out in the paddock before the race.  This one in particular didn’t seem to appreciate it much, but his horse was acting up the whole time so how could I resist?

I dare you to smile before a race your horse is in!

Possibly my favorite shot of the day.  This fellow went on to win his race, and I’ll mention he is dun in color, a little unusual for a Thoroughbred.

    Personality wise I prefer Standardbreds, they have a better sense of humor.
