The Canadian Derby

I went to the Canadian Derby yesterday and I thought that I should share some of the pictures I took. Enjoy!

Sometimes I don't understand my camera... I can't seem to get a non-blurry picture of my horse walking but I can get a clear picture of a group of horses galloping past...

Oh, and the grey horse (#10) ended up winning the Canadian Derby.

Awesome pictures! For some reason I really liked the 4th from the top where the guy is walking his horse in the parade ring (?) with loose reins and his hand on his neck. Probably not the safest way to lead a racehorse right before a race but the horse looks so calm and happy. :)

I agree jake that picture caught my eye. He looks so much more relaxed and content then any race horse before a race that I have ever seen. Gorgeous pictures btw! :]

I agree with you all that it's my favorite picture.

I do love the sound of them galloping! I had never been to an actual race before, I've seen them through the fence but I've never been so close! It was really exciting!

I'm am loving the first pic in that last set (the panorama shot). That is pretty epic!

I love the "socks" (I'm guessing they're like SMBs or wraps or galloping boots or something, but they look like knee-high striped baseball socks!) that chestnut is wearing in the fifth pic from the top.

Ah yes, I really liked those too. That horse won that particular race.
