I’m headed to Louisville, KY this weekend for the world famous Kentucky Derby. This will be my third time at the Derby, but I can tell you this one already looks to be the wettest. Forecasters are calling for rain most of Saturday. Ouch. I’ll try to post a photo from the race here on the blog. In the meantime, this will have to get you, and me, in the spirit of horse racing. That, or you can make yourself a mint julep!
This is a photo I shot at the 2007 Lanes End Stakes at Turfway Park, a qualifier for the Derby in Florence, Kentucky. Amid the thunder of horses and the screaming crowd, it comes off as a nice quiet moment between horse and jockey.
