A fine action shot but it does leave me wanting to see the heads of the leading horses.

A really beautiful photograph depicting this so historical of horsing events, so wonderfully filled with natural colours and great detail.

Impressionistic, hints of Degas. And he was quite happy to cut off a horse's head.

thank you Moira : you allowed me to discover this painting (i vaguely knew Degas painted horses)

and, actually, he cuts off a horse's head Tongue (I hesitated before uploading this image...)

I tried this racing photography before,
and you have better timing than I had.
I ended up with lots of pics of the horses behinds !!
