Horse Racing Photography

25 Mar

Unfortunately, I didn’t take any photos while at the Florida Museum of Natural History over spring break, but I figured I would share some of my favorite photos from my trip to Tampa Bay Downs, as well as Laurel Park’s “Racing 101 Day at the Races,” over the same time period. I just bought a Canon 450D DSLR camera in January, with a Sigma 50-200mm telephoto lens, and have really enjoyed learning how to use it. I really wish I’d had it for all those big horse races I attended last year, including the Triple Crown and Breeder’s Cup! You can view my full racing albums on Flickr.

All for Peace, with Geovany Garcia up, wins the 3rd race (Racing 101 Day at the Races) at Laurel Park. We got to watch the race from the winner's circle and get our picture taken with the winning jockey.

They're off in the 6th race at Laurel Park, which began in the backstretch chute.

    Having read this I thought it was really enlightening.
    I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this
    information together. I once again find myself spending way
    too much time both reading and posting comments.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

    During the last few years, online dating services exploded, because the request
    was huge for it. For your online dating profile, that means
    using attention-grabbing headlines, regular updates, and
    maybe a line or two that shows how witty you are.

    You end up revealing many personal details over the course of an online dating relationship, but
    these details can be used against you to steal your identity.
