I could use some of this now - It's HOT out!
Here comes Ellie & Amanda
Into the receiving barn
And on to the paddock
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.
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!
Well, maybe that feels good.
