I was about to ask why no mud pics, they would show a happy horse?

the answer is people. people who were angry to see them turn out a horse in his halter. those people. that's why.
Get out to Lenny’s for their big grand opening sale. Find eight government secrets and get a free kidnapping and personality reassignment so that you’ll forget you found them!

Nice shot Ms. Livingston with Money Mike going to the whip right out of the gate.

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Racing Post posted this photo to accompany a Frankel article - I though I'd seen every Frankel photo, but I haven't seen this one, it's lovely.

It looks like the rider is in the Juddmonte silks, so I would presume that this was taken on race day? Maybe on his way to post on one of those spacious English tracks, where the photographer was able to catch the colt with only turf (and a lone tree?) in the background.

I believe that was him pulling up after the 2000 Guineas, number and course conditions match and the race was also sponsored by QIPCO. It's a gorgeous shot, I think there's a similar one somewhere of Sea The Stars

I don't want to lift the proofed photo from the racingpost site, but I love love love this photo of Kew Gardens winning his maiden at Killarney. How many racetracks in the world can boast that backdrop?

Santa Anita can, although the San Gabriels aren't green like that most of the year. :P
