Tips (not the gambling kind)
- Excellent opportunity to photograph a ‘unique’ environment
- A chance to hone your sport’s photography skills – horses are fast!
- Joe Gray (Director of Racing) will take us through the barn/stable area during ‘morning training’ with a stop in the ‘clocker’s stand’ (rubbing shoulders with the trainers) to photograph horses being exercised on the race track
- From there, he will take us around the barn / stable area
Safety first as thoroughbreds during the racing season and especially during morning training can be unpredictable; therefore it is imperative we do as Mr. Gray says!
