Marie, I think these are so beautiful. That sport is intense, grueling, punishing, and beautiful. And you've really honored it. It's got to be great fun to go out with like minds to a day of excitement and creativity.

Awesome pictures - love the last one best too!! (I seem to remember being covered in mud a time or 2 as a youngster - but that was usually because I got dumped into the mud after trying some fool stunt from horseback or from an over abundance of energy in my young one - I always rode bareback....)
Love all the clown pictures too!!!

I feel sorry for the poor soul who has to deal with all that washing!!! Fantastic captures! You really have got the essence of all that adrenline surging.

Your bet sounds like my $5 on the chocolate wheel when we go to Burswood (now called The Crown). And that's only once in a very blue moon!

what a great event to capture

Got to love when a whim pays off!
What great action shots and that final one is just, well priceless, raw, gritty it really captures the moment of how challenging the race was, great stuff!

fabulous photographs ... and your 'winning jockey' (BIG smile), Mike Smith is a friend from my home state of New Mexico!

Great photos - I like the muddy ones the best.

Great pictures, the hands of the older jockey tell a story in thenselves.OXOX M
