Some Raceday Pictures From Ajax Downs

I am currently in a photography class in school, but I've been a bit lacking in the picture taking. Today I decided to take the handy dandy camera out to Ajax Downs and shoot some pictures of the races to a) use for class and b) share with everybody. Ajax really is a very fun track to spend a day at.

Storytime Blue (6) and leading rider Cory Spataro rallied to win the 4th race
This is Leo Can Get It, who is the unusual Grullo colour. A fun colt just to look at

Selective Memory (2) and Brittany Vanden Berg rolled to victory in the 5th race
This shot is from the Storytime Blue race. Races like this, where several horses are contesting for the win are what make Quarter Horse racing a thrill to me

Fiesty Icon and Tony Phillips coming back after winning the 6th

Ssc Eye Get It (4) got  up in the last stride to win the 7th by a nose

Country Boy Deluxe (1) and Cory Spataro winning the $133,050 Alex Picov Memorial Championship, Canada's richest Quarter Horse race

L. Doug McPherson, Four-Forty
Varsity Lace (6) and Mike Holmes won the finale in a thriller over Memories Times Six (inside)
Ajax Downs is a great little track. You're up close to the horses, the atmosphere is great, it really is a great place to spend a day. We're back with a nine race card on Tuesday, so I hope everyone will tune in and enjoy some great Quarter Horse action from Ajax Downs!
