i was trying to get on with a crew who is shooting the local track.
so i went the other day and took a few. i used to work at this track
in the early 80s. i was a groom, security, and then a blacksmith. its amazing,
i saw people that i knew who are still working at the track after all these years.
anyway, it was fun.

Really nice series. Very sharp and good color throughout. I think #7 is my favorite - not because of the action, but the contrast with the worker leading the horse and the guy in the suit looking on - seems to tell an interesting story.

Nice shots.

I used to work at a sulky racing track as a teenager.

Parked cars, busked tables, money changer, all that kind of stuff.

Back then it was mainly manual, now all the betting is computerized (I think).
