So I've recently becoming very interested in horse racing, and by default, losing money on those horse races. I've owned horses for 11 years but I've never really paid attention to horse racing. In the last month I've been to two races, one at Indiana Downs and the other at the legendary Churchill Downs, where all of these photos come from. I'm slightly disappointed with the actual race photos here but I wasn't allowed to get as close to the rail as I wanted and I could only zoom in so far. I am however really happy with the jockey photo up at the top. I have another photo that I want to add to this but I'd reached my limit on size for the post, maybe I'll put it up later if I get the chance. Anyway, I had so much fun at the races. I met the jockey who had won the Preakness on Shackleford, Jesus Castanon, and broke even on my betting. If you ever get a chance to go I definitely recommend it. Hope everyone enjoys the photos and please leave some comments to let me know what you think. I start my internship down at Ft. Knox next week so you'll be seeing some photos of Army Cadets in training coming soon.
