Keeneland Race Sunday

The track
f/10, 1/1250, ISO 800

The crowd
f/16, 1/50, ISO 100

The gate
f/6.3, 1/1600, ISO 100

The bell rings
The gate opens

Here they come!
f/6.3, 1/320, ISO 100
f/5.6, 1/320, ISO 100
f/5.6, 1/320, ISO 100 (Mind the head in the corner, I did not get a good spot)

The crowd cheers!
There's excitement in the air!
And the winner is number 2!

I put on my fancy Sunday dress and heels on and went to Keeneland Horse Track with a few friends to watch horse racing. I knew nothing about placing bets, and needless to say the race horses. I learned that win is first place followed by place and show, second and third place, respectively.

I placed two dollars on number 5 Delago

The victory lap
f/6.3, 1/320, ISO 100

f/10, 1/120, ISO 100

I loved the excitement and the cheers that fills the air in that short 20 seconds of racing. I watched three races today and I could do it all day.

The best part was that few seconds when the gate opens up and the horses bust through with jockeys sitting up high holding a gave me a rush of adrenaline and I jumped up and down hoping my horse would win.

But my horse did not place
