Sam Houston Race Track
It was interesting but the photo ops were mostly guard railing. I did get a few shots of people in the winner’s circle which are acceptable but I really only got one shot that I truly like. I just wish more, okay, some of the horse had been visible. A few times it was obvious that the owner of the horse and the jockey were being photographed after they had already taken the horse away. However, I never figured out who all the other people were that were allowed in the circle. Sure made it difficult to get anything very interesting Anyway, here’s my shot of the night.
Here is another shot of the same horse and jockey as they approached the finish line. When I first photographed him I wasn't sure the word on his leg was EAT but here it clearly is. I think it must have said, "MY DUST" on the other leg.
