Race cards for the weekend!

September 9th, 2016 · Bro Park, Klampenborg, Photo, Race card

Stinger and Carlos Lopez are also starting in Stockholm

We have a lot of racing going on this weekend and here are some of the horses starting in Stockholm and the race cards for the different race days. There are many more lovely horses, but I need to get this up before the racing starts. I hope you enjoy the racing, no matter how much you’re going to watch. As for me – properly all of it, knowing me.

I’m not sure if I’m going racing tomorrow at Klampenborg as I’ve had some health issues (if you want to read, there is translation on site) lately, but we’ll see. If nothing else I’ll watch it at home. But I might see you!
I wish you all a lovely weekend.

This morning, there was no beating about the bush, it was up early! Derby Galops were on the agenda and normally I’d be very happy to see the sun, but NOT for (Derby) galops! That means you’ve got the sun straight in the camera, and that doesn’t make for great photos. But I should learn to trust my camera more as it always perform better than I expect and I’ve gotten som good photos everything considering.

I didn’t photograph all the galops. I lost my motivation due to the whole sun situation and frankly, I’ll get more than my share of photos to share after a weekend which is going to be grueling in terms of photos and just in general. I’d rather have SOC and the Derby at their normal time of year, but that’s not up to me, so I’ll just have to grin and bear it – which I will do! But I can promise that I won’t photograph all the races. That would be pure suicide, so I’ll have to limit myself.

The galops went fine and some horses of course went a propper galop while others were “just” there to try the bend. Two obviously needed to be reminded of the bend and try it. Suspicous Mind had a little reminder on the neck to tell him to go round all very skillfully handled by Sabina Karlsson.

Nathalie Leijonhöf on Nemuranthes was not as lucky. Nemuranthes took the first bend, but when he reached the second one at the woods he thought that was enough. Obviously Nathalie didn’t and they parted ways. Fortunately neither horse or rider got hurt, and she could have another go. He tried the same stunt again but she was prepared and they started over and the 3rd. time was it, they made it round. I wonder why they didn’t bring a lead horse.

In the mittle of taking photos, I was summoned to move the rails so Nicolaj and Stradivarius could get out on the grass. So I did! And put it back afterwards. I’m never bored at the track or the stable for that matter.

For now I give you these lovely people and horses and we have started the countdown to the events of the year! As always I’m relying on the good people from the track to help me with the horses I haven’t pinned down, but all in good time. To see the horses starting in both SOC and The Derby, go here.

Behind Every Great Horse

July 29th, 2016 · Diverse, Videos

‘Behind Every Great Horse’ shines a light on the unsung heroes of the horse racing community and their role in making the sport extraordinary. From the stable jockeys who go on daily dawn rides on the gallops, to the grooms who work tirelessly in the stable yard, to the farriers who tend to the horses’ hooves, these are the men and women whose passion and dedication allow every horse to thrive. Guinness is proud to have sponsored the Galway Races Festival for the last fifty one years, a landmark occasion in the Irish racing and social calendar.
