You Got It! No, You Got It!

I didn’t win on opening day at Saratoga, but at least I caught both winners of the Schuylerville as they were leaving the paddock with my camera:

Brazen Persuasion and jockey Rosie Napravnik.

Favored Bahnah.

And here they are, at the wire:

A few more photos from the day:

A pleasant reminder of one of the 2012 meet’s best moments.
