Went to Tampa Bay Downs for Florida Derby Day last sat, and captured these images. After that we made some $2 bets. Won 5 times, but still lost $20. Still a fun day. All shot w/D70/28-200G.

Colorful

Reminds me of when I was a little girl and I used to go the horses with my father, uncle and grandfather. It was sully racing though.

Great color and interest.

Thanks,

Thanks everyone,

My kids were arguing about whether the 2nd shot, the "down the stretch" shot was at the end of the race or the beginning. Who knows, I took so many!
One thing I learned about playing the ponies, is that I don't know a damn thing about playing the ponies!

Terrific shots Steve - my fav would be #2.

Used to go to the geegees a lot when younger and worked with racehorses for a while - they're all mad (horses and people) :)

You've given me the inspiration to go and try shooting them one day.
