I have owned my boy for the past 5 yrs and just saw that post about win photos. I would absolutely love to have a win photo or two of my boy. He had three wins and I have his charts at home but cant remember which places he won at. Anyone know who the photographers at Penn national or philly park would have been in 01 or 02?
Thanks a ton in advance!

It looks like the track photographer at Penn National is B&D Photography. They have the main number listed as 717-469-2211. Photographer is extension 3221.

Good luck getting your win photos!

I tried to get win phots for my boy from Philly Park. He had a win in 2000 & 2001. They told me the track photogrpaher from that time had died and photos could nt be obtained. I was really bummed.

Hope you have better luck!

I worked at Philly Park up until 1999....the track photographer that was there when I was there, is very much still alive. I go there on occasion and the other week she was talking to me.....so if she is very much indeed dead.....I will say she looked very good! :lol:

I have tried to get a win photo of my horse from Penn National for months now.The Track photrogapher(B&D) has not returned any of my calls or responded to any emails. I give up! If anyone could help me out I would appreciate it so much. Her name is Trip Or Treat by Trippi Out of Crafty Cosmah. She won at Penn National July 18,2008 Race 9.

I've found you really have to keep on top of the photographers - keep calling until you actually get someone on the phone.

My horse is a 1996 model and his one and only win was his maiden race at Detroit Race Course in October of 1998. I bought him in November 2000 - at that time, DRC had been demolished and was a bunch of office buildings :(

Through this board, I found the guy who was the photographer there - and it did take time and preserverence, but I did get the win photo! It actually arrived while I was hospitalized after back surgery in April 2001. Nice gift to receive when you're stuck in the hospital!

Best of luck and keep trying!

Well, if your horse ran at Gulfstream, someone on here got me the photog's name and he was very easy to deal with by e-mail and phone. Expensive for two 8x10s but it was quick and easy.

I've got a couple 'winners' pictures here of Precious Few from 2001.

I doubt anyone would object you going to a photog shop to get these printed. Maybe someone here has the equipment to do so.

I hope you and 'Precious' have a great 2011.

Hopefully B&D has helped you....2008 seems recent enough.

If not, try 07/18/2008 trainer, Flint Stites.

You'll find his email here:

There is a cool site that will replay races at Penn and many other tracks. I think it is called race replays, or something like that. It is pretty cool. I looked up my guy, you enter horse's name and it lists the races it has recorded. My guy had about 25 that I could view at several different tracks. I does cost, but it is pretty cheap. Check it out.
