and she’s off again! always a highlight of my year is when i get to visit the backside of Oaklawn in Hot Springs. i have had the privilege of spending time in the trainer’s stand to photograph horses exercising, photographed races only two feet from the inside rail, and met some of the industries elite.
first stop this year on our way to Hot Springs was Lake Hamilton Equine to spend some time with Dr. Clement and photograph some ADORABLE foals. we toured the facilities and watched Dr. Clement treat several mares and did i mention the ADORABLE foals? there was a lot of them…honestly that day was mostly a blur because i was so distracted with the baby horses.
i spent two days at Oaklawn Racetrack where I had the privilege of photographing from the backside and stand by the starting gate. always a thrill to be so close to these amazing animals. i was delighted to visit with the owner of Fudge Tough and visit him at his barn.
i could go on and on but imma just let you enjoy the pictures…
