I could use some of this now - It's HOT out!

Here comes Ellie & Amanda

Into the receiving barn

And on to the paddock

I'm ready!

The man of the hour (Go Derek!)

One of the owners (and Derek)

Oh good, I get to meet the owners again (just kidding, Tammy)

All saddled up, ready to run

One more time around the paddock.

Riders up!

A little warmup (before the starting gate)

They're off (after a fractious #8)!

2 seconds in to the mile.

The first turn

Starting the back side

I really need that 70-300 lens!

4 furlongs, she's in third.

Starting to gain on the leaders.

Just a length out of the lead now.

Rounding the final turn - Go Ellie!

- And she'll hold this lead to the finish ! (yes, I missed the #*&^$&% finish again)

I think she won!

I'm a ROCK STAR  - yes I am!

The winner's circle (not much of a view)

I did it!

Get this thing off of me!

That's better!

Ooooooo!

Well, maybe that feels good.
