So before they decide to gallop away again, here a few I took last Thursday:
On the last walk about before heading back to the gate.
A young woman with a camera dealing with the mud.
Thought I would try this function on my camera. I like it - all except the head in front of me!
After the race - the mud is all over rider and steed.
So it's time for a shower - for the horse, of course!
I like the juxtaposition of live action with videoed action behind.
The track workers dealing with the mud after the tractors went through.
A well-deserved break.
Not the expression and body language on horse and man with snap on something or other.
Sometimes the worker horses show a bit of temperament, also!
I came home with approximately two dollars in winnings; D lost about that much. Big bettors we are not, but it was a grand experience.
