    Default OLD WINNERS CIRCLE/PHOTO FINISH PICTURES

    Does anyone know a reliable website that contains old racehorse photographs (e.g. winner's circle or photo finish). I have a thoroughbred that raced in 1994 through 1998 and I would LOVE to find a track photograph of him.

    I've contacted the track's photographers, but no answer

    He raced at Detroit (does anyone have contact information for this now closed racetrack???), Tampa Bay Downs, Calder, Hialeah, and Gulfstream.

    Thanks!

    The Abahazy family were the track photographers at Ladbroke DRC. My horse won there on 10/11/98; when I got him in 11/2000, I requested his win photo & received it in April 2001. The copyright on the photo is S. Abahazy.

    I believe the father has passed away, but his sons have been track photographers at Great Lakes Downs & Oaklawn.

    You could try www.benoitphoto.com. From their website: Tom Abahazy and his wife Sabrina (of the Tibor Abahazy photo dynasty in the midwest) agreed to manage the operation in the mid 1990's.

    This, I believe, is the family's farm (per Thoroughbred Times search): Abahazy Farm, 57835 W. Eight Mile Rd., Northville, MI 48167

    Hope this helps you out.

    You can try Coady, http://www.coadyphotography.com/, but it doesn't appear that he has photos for the tracks/years that you are looking for.
