“They’re Off”: A Vivid Horse Racing Experience

“They’re off!” Horse racing at Keeneland in Lexington, KY.

In light of the Belmont Stakes tomorrow and the possibility of American Pharaoh winning the Triple Crown, it seems like a horse racing picture is appropriate for this weeks’ photo challenge: “Vivid.”  At the start, a horse race is a thrilling swirl of color, sound and speed. The jockeys’ silks and the horses’ blankets are always in vivid colors and the thunder of the horses running by provides a thrilling experience, though it only lasts a few seconds.

This photo was from Keeneland, the beautiful race course in Lexington, Kentucky, which this year will host the Breeders’ Cup, the Superbowl of horse racing, in October.
