Photos from Flamboro Downs

I'm not super happy with these pictures, but I've never shot at night before and they aren't horrible. Practice will make perfect.

     Anyways, I drove out to Flamboro Downs on Thursday night to take some pictures of harness racing. It was my first time at Flamboro, and it's an okay little track. Is it the nicest B-track in Ontario? No, but it's certainly not bad. Here are the shots I thought were worthy of sharing. They aren't as good as the Ajax ones, but oh well.

Warrawee Phoenix was an impressive winner in the 8th

Enough About You (5) pulled a 7-1 upset in the feature, a Preferred 2 Handicap Trot

     I hope you enjoy these pictures. Any constructive criticism is welcome, especially if you're a photographer.
