Here it is! The 113th Annual Millarville Race on Canada Day. What an amazing event to attend, perhaps my favorite event to photograph to date. This is by far the fastest (in terms of action) Equestrian event that I have shot to date but I had no issues. In a way it reminded me of Skijoring as it brought back memories from this past winter.
And again who doesn't love those stock horse races?! We need an event with just stock horse races from start to finish.
There are a whole list of shots that I want (and planning) to get for Thoroughbreds but obviously it will take me some time as it's just not possible to get it all in just 6 races. Races that go by just like that and you have a split second to get the shot that you want.
I would have liked to get photos of the activity going on inside the VIP tents but I would prefer to be in it as I didn't want to get the steel fence in the photos (not particularly all that appealing). I will not be missing out on photos for the VIP areas at the Breeder's Cup in November.
I respected the riders privacy in the back as they didn't want the camera on them so I just took a few photos of the horses in the stalls. I always make the most out of any situation.
This gets me even more excited heading to Kentucky on Halloween Day (as if I wasn't already excited).
