View Full Version : My Favorite Picture from Oaklawn Saturday - and It's Not One of the Racehorses

Just a private moment with an outrider and his horse in the paddock in between races. Loved this one. Just the two of them for that second in the middle of their busy day of having to pay attention to everybody else.

Does anybody know who this man is? I would like to give him this pic; think he'd enjoy it.

Fantastic day and fun one otherwise, and I even picked Archarcharch, although I hadn't meant to going in. But he looked in the paddock like he really had his "game face" on. Unfortunately, I was only betting $2.

Weird, that shows up so blurry on my screen you can hardly tell what you are looking at.

Finished dumping the rest of my pictures from the day from the camera. I'm a pure amateur with a wimpy camera, but it gives a general flavor of the day. I thought Baffert on the cell phone was good. Several from the paddock of Archarcharch - he caught my eye there, even though I hadn't planned to bet him. A few more outrider shots, but my favorite is still the first one.

Photobucket did, as is its wont, totally scramble the order, so these aren't chronological.


ETA: I emailed the first shot to Oaklawn. Maybe it will hook up with the outrider eventually.
