Hi and welcome to this edition of Workshop at the Ranch. I believe it was English novelist and sports writer Robert Smith Surtees who in the mid 1800s crowned Horse Racing the “Sport of Kings.” There is something royal, magical, and intoxicating about this sport. I have been photographing Horse Racing for well over a decade now and have enjoyed every minute of my time spent on some of America’s best racecourses. And so when the American PHOTO Mentor Series asked me to teach a photo trek in Lexington, Kentucky I immediately answered YES!
Our three-day photo trek of learning would center on the Lexington, Kentucky horse racing community, and one of the loveliest racecourses in America, Keeneland.
If you have enjoyed this look into horseracing you might want to check out my pictorial coffee table book and identical ebook edition called Thoroughbreds … the Horse Racing Experience. You can find it under the Book Category on my website. See you next time here on Workshop at the Ranch.
