The Real Stars of the Race

How'd you do in The Fifth?

Ofcourse  the true stars of the race are these beautiful horses. San Diego County is the home to many Breeders and Trainers and horse lovers! In our small community just outside if San Diego, it is not uncommon to see riders and horses at intersections waiting to cross or trotting along the hundreds of mile of Horse Trails in the area. This is concludes the Horse Racing Series – one of our most enjoyable and challenging Projects! Now a bit more about the track!

Into the new century the track continued to post records in handle and attendance and offered some of the greatest thoroughbred racing in America. Each year, the track opens their 43-day summer racing season in mid-July to crowds upwards of 40,000 people.The first race of the meet on opening day starts at 2 pm when track announcer Trevor Denman begins each racing season with his trademark call: “And there’s the roar from the Del Mar crowd as the 2011 Del Mar meet is underway.”

  1. I love this shot, Erik, you’ve really captured the spirits of the horses here wonderfully! Love the shallow DoF, as well, it really brings the horses right out of the screen for us to enjoy!
