I think this is the smallest detail painting for me to date and one of my favorite moments that I captured during the races. I took this photo placing my camera in between the railings nearest the curve on the racetrack. This horse clearly had a "leg up" if you don't mind the pun. I'm not a gambler as a perfect example of that is this horse's name was "SheezaBigBroad" and they kept saying it over the speaker system, "SheezaBigBroad over and over again and I just thought they were just being offensive in their description of this big horse! Boy, was I glad I didn't verbalize that to anyone standing nearby. Anyway I'm an artist looking for the best photo opportunities that abound and at at this point in the race I sure was wishing I was a gambler and would have placed a bet on her as she came around and ended very strong. I felt good walking away though not having gambled becuase the photographs captured at this first ever Photography Day at the Santa Anita Racetrack in Arcadia CA were much more priceless, although sharing my deepest thoughts to my subscribers here could be one of my most embarrasing!
