Honor Code Wins the Whitney by Jessie-kad
Honor Code Wins the Whitney
I can't wait to see Honor Code run at Belmont this Saturday (if the weather cooperates, that is). He's just such a cool horse, and I've seen him run so many times at so many tracks. His Whitney win was simply heart-stopping. Pharoah'll have to look out for him in the last strides of the Classic if they meet up...
American Pharoah at Saratoga by Jessie-kad
American Pharoah at Saratoga
He may not have won the Travers, but I did capture what I'd hoped for: a photo of the magnificence of American Pharoah in the gloriousness of Saratoga Racecourse. I'm so blessed to have witnessed him race in person once more, and I am so thankful to the Zayats and Bob Baffert for bringing him back to New York. He sure did put on a show, and we don't love him any less in defeat. This is one of my favorite photos of Pharoah, and, sadly, probably the last of him I'll have ever taken. 
Rachel's Valentina Wins the Spinaway by Jessie-kad
Rachel's Valentina Wins the Spinaway
Well, this kinda makes up for Pharoah's Travers loss.

Six years to the day that her incredible mother Rachel Alexandra won the Woodward as a three-year-old filly against older males, her daughter, Rachel's Valentina (whose sire is the equally as incredible Bernardini), took the Spinaway at Saratoga Racecourse. She is now 2-for-2 and a Grade I winner. How AMAZING is that? And how old do I feel, having photographed her mother and now her? :sweatdrop: revamp v2 Here's to little Valentina, and a magnificent career ahead!
