At The Track

I'm not a gambler and I don't watch horseracing. Elora has a free admission night during the weeks of summer and we attended, mostly for the up close look at these powerful animals (the horses, not the riders) and the photo opps. Rather than post a long serial showing tight groupings of competitors rounding the bend, I will keep this short. Watching these modern day chariot pilots in their strange tilted postures made my lower back ache with sympathy pains.

I haven't seen a harness race in decades. A beautiful image of this one.
