I remember watching this race on TV, even remember the announcers shouting the victory. It was a wonderful, exciting moment to watch, so I can only imagine the intense thrill and joy you felt when you snapped this photo, Jessie.

And BTW, this shot is a hundred-times better than anything the TV cameramen captured. Here, we get to see California Chrome in all his glory; his rippling muscles, the way his hind legs kick up the dirt, his long beautiful legs stretching out powerfully towards the finish line...these are details that only a still photograph can capture. And like the previous photo you took of Chrome and Espinoza, you can just tell how well in sync they are in this image. You've taken a gorgeous victory shot here! :clap:

*Love* this horse. :love: *Love* your photos!!

Oh how I would love to see a Triple Crown Winner and not be reminded of my age every time the Belmont comes up after a win in the first two jewels!

oviwpuvbweubvw[ebuv[oweb Your work got buried in my inbox. I had no idea you were there, you're so fortunate. I'm very glad you were able to be there and catch these gorgeous shots.  I was photoing quarter horse racing that day and kept checking the twitter feeds like a nut before the Preakness.  I seriously danced around the paddock when they told me he won.
