Spider raced again yesterday, so I made a visit to Woodbine to catch the race. He seems like he's figuring it out now, running second to a horse that was twice his size! You can watch the video below (number 10, Bat Out of Hades).
The day's feature was the Steady Growth stakes, won by favoured Sand Cove, who overtook front-running J J for Dave in the stretch (photo at the top of this post). Despite messing up my camera settings I got a few shots that were either cool or inspiration for paintings.
It was a perfect day yesterday - clear blue sky and a nice breeze, not too hot. I hope we get a day just like this for next Sunday's Queen's Plate!
