Day at the Races 2

And they're off!

 

I know nothing about horse racing but heard from the people around me that these were qualifying races for some other set of races.

 

Here they are once around.

I don't understand it either but it makes for an interesting shot Mary
It's got me wondering if this is easier than actually riding on the horse...or harder? It does look like fun, though, doesn't it.

My mother was interested in those horse racings- and sometimes I joined her and did also betting. Interesting action photos!
Trotting racing is quite popular her but I have never actually seen it. Here the tracks are usually grass

You wouldn't want to be at the back in the cloud of dust would you!
An interesting way to start, a rolling start I suppose makes it very fair. Hope the car driver remembers he has that rig on the back when turning off the tracksmile
Great shots Mary! I'm not familiar with this style of racing, I'm used to seeing the jockeys on the horse.
