Nice, Charlie. Except for the electronic tote board in the first frame, they have a timeless feel, IMO.

Nice set, Charlie.
I can almost feel the speed. The last is my pick.

Cool old film shots.
Man, I was a big as the jockeys when I was about 8 years old. Not kidding.
I'd crush those poor horsies!

Thanks, Kenny, Chris and Tim.
In my efforts to see or experience a wide variety of things and events, I went to The Track" with camera and B&W film. Placed a couple of minimum bets. Luckily, I lost.
Then I poked around with my camera.
Overall it was a lot of fun- and up close- those horses are magnificently beautiful. And they are fast- especially the quarter horses (the drag-strip racers).
