I really love this picture, I just wish I could have gotten the two palm trees in the shot. Nothing says, "L.A.
like palm trees."
Santa Anita Park really is the Great Race Place!
Here is a wider view.
View from the other end. Beyond the fountain is the south exit.
Picture of horse and jockey topiary.
I just love the symmetry of this shot. What do you think?
The next few pictures are where the horses are saddled and held until they move to the walking ring.
If you think about it, a leading rider at the meet changes more times in a day than most people
change in a week.
Horses move from the saddling/holding area and journey to the walking ring.
The next few shots focus on the walking ring.
View of tote board from the walking ring.
The tunnel the horses must walk through to enter the main track.
Getting back to the main track.
A beautiful January day at the track. I think it was about 77 degrees.
