Opening Day is here!!
-
My favorite paddock, one of the greatest mates of all time. I’ll never make a better picture in a paddock than this shot of Zenyatta dancing. I’m okay with that. I have always had a fascination with  Del Mar  paddock, even before it changed to its new modern aesthetic. I had searched for years for old pictures and months ago I found a shot my mom took in 1978!!

Can’t wait to share it!!!

Del Mar Racing
Still one of my all time favorite remote camera shots. This was the first ever race on a synthetic surface @delmarracing back in 2007. Taken with a real camera before you could slap a go pro down and call it a day.

Weeks of planning comes down to a half a second and a few strides. -
To learn how to make images like this and many more. Check out the link in my bio. Our @keeneland workshop Oct 9-11 is filling up fast!!

I had a wild shoot today. Years of showing up late at Hollywood Park forcing myself to learn remotes under duress.
-
Today I realized I left all my cables in my other case. It hit me about a mile away from the track. So I rummaged through my trunk and found an @canonusa cable release with a button on the end. I had no scissors or wire cutters, not even a knife. I ripped off the button portion of the cable release and it actually pulled the wires out perfectly. I used my finger nails to strip the shield. I also had some random Nikon remote cables that @scottseriophotos made. I ripped those apart and it exposed the wires so I could attach the two pieces to make one cable.
-
It tested it worked. The only thing I did have was an @pocketwizard cable with a household plug to a miniphone. Using the wire and an add a tap I was able to make a complete @pocketwizard cable.
-
They ran, the remote fired and nailed this saver shot to accompany my 1/30th of a second arty pan!!
-
These are the things we teach in our workshop. Slowing things down, stay calm under pressure and learn a basic understanding of how all this gear works.
-
My grandfather was an engineer that worked on the rocket to propel the Apollo missions back off the moon. He woulda been proud of this Macgyver rig I built today!! This type of stuff you won’t learn at photo school, there is no assignment that anyone can make up to simulate ingenuity under pressure.
-
The whole thing is in my story! Also check out the link in my bio to the workshop we are teaching to learn all this!!

Trust me, Game Winner looks a hell of a lot faster in this picture than he actually was moving at the finish...

He was easily geared down in his tuneup for the Travers Stakes !!

Hands down one of the best parts of @delmarracing is you never know which future stars you will see.

A year after American Pharoah we were rewarded with Nyquist who was undefeated until the @preaknessstakes
-
I’m liking Fore Left this summer, based of his win at Belmont!
-
How’s the next big one?

I’m getting super pumped for Opening Day @delmarracing . Last few years I’ve shot, this year the wife and I are getting dressed up and having a good time!! -
I’ve got a filthy linen suit... let’s just say the look or as my sister would say Lewk, is inspired by the great Enable. -
We’ll leave it at that!! I personally like the aspect of getting dressed up for the races. It’s a far cry from my normal attire which is slightly Hobo!! I’m rolling around in the mud and dirt chasing the remote frames. -
This is another example of the “inverse pan” technique and how it can be applied off the track!
-
Who else is going to Opening Day?!?
-
Side Note: @sharlaraesanders, there’s a good chance I’m gonna come up and say hello to the Team O’neill crew!! -

We practice what we teach. I like to call these shots the “inverse pan” since you execute these types of shots with similar setting to a pan.

6 years ago Evers Racing got their first winner @betfairhollywoodpark ... our filly was in front by 7 turning for home so I pulled out my phone... I didn’t need the air whip this day!!
-
Seeing your horse in your silks win a race is like nothing I’ve experienced. 29 years I had waited for that moment!!! -
I love my Dad, bailing out of the box to start running to the winner circle. I love @draydenv standing on the rail pumping his fist just like my pops!!!
-
When we got to the track that day after partying all morning, I walked through the jocks room tunnel to get to the box and I saw @garystevens_jockey Studying our fillies races on the iPad prepping. I wanted to fan boy and talk to him but he was so focused in his zone. The filly had never been on lead an Gary went out and wired the field, opened up on the turn, and when Proctor looked at me and goes that’s Gary’s move, I lost my mind!!! -
The best 4th of July Evers!!!
-
Every year I think of this day!!!
-
Got some exciting stuff in the works!!!
-
Stay tuned!!

I remember taking this picture before the opening of the 2017 @Delmarracing season. I was pumped. I love these shots of horses galloping in front of the grandstand. I was fully planning on some grandiose second half of the season campaign but it wasn't meant to be. Still flipping through the footage of Arrgoate's races, reminded me why he was one of my all time favorite horses. That long loping stride, mixed with a devastating turn of foot and the ability to sit anywhere in a field.

The 4 G1 races he put together from Travers to Dubai World Cup, are some of the most unreal consecutive perfomances against top end competition I have seen. California Chrome, Gun Runner, Accelerate, Collected  was the competition over the Classic Distance... Some hall of famers in that list!!! #eversphoto #horseracing  #thoroughbredracing #thoroughbred #horse #horses #horsesofinstagram #equine #equestrian #Horselife #equestrianlifestyle #racing #photography #sports #photojournalism #picoftheday #photooftheday #instagood #canonusa #instahorses #競馬 #賽馬 #equine #delmarracing #instahorses#delmar#arrogate#openingday#solanabeach
