Stormy Liberal on the inside is nosed out by Eddie Haskell in his prep for a race in Dubai... more concerning was the awkward step he took approaching the quarter pole. I hope he comes out well!!

Stormy Liberal on the inside is nosed out by Eddie Haskell in his prep for a race in Dubai... more concerning was the awkward step he took approaching the quarter pole. I hope he comes out well!! -

So with time difference, travel schedule, editing and jet lag I haven’t had time to post and reply about our upcoming Racing Photography Workshop April 11-13 @santaanitapark .
-
So why the picture of me laying in the mud  setting up a remote?!!! Cause rain or shine we are out there making frames, learning every race trying to get better. I love sharing my passion for racing and photography with anyone and everyone!! I’m so fortunate to have a community of racing and photography fans that y’all can keep me entertained on a 15 hour flight!! It’s incredible!!!
-
So check it: Here is a little sneak peak at the insights you’ll get from @eclipsesportswire and I at the workshop!!
-
Swipe to the next shot, it’s taken with this set up, but did you know I got this lens for under 100 usd?!? And it made that picture!! Granted I know it’s the photographer not the gear, but it’s great to know that you don’t have to go spend a fortune to build a small remote kit. The lens is a @canonusa 50mm f1.8 STM. And it is just as sharp as my 24-70mm I use for this type of shot. The pro reps over at Canon are brilliant as I would have been a gear snob and never looked at this as an option. So now when it rains I have a go to set up!! I personally don’t like using filters. I want the best optics I can get but when it’s super muddy I throw this bad boy on a camera. If it gets dark you can go down to 1.8... it’s got a small element that sorts deeper into the lens so you don’t get much kickback on the glass.. then I have it modified with some random Jankey hood I bought at the electronics market in Wan Chai!!! -
That is a little peak at some of the strategy and things we teach at the workshop!! -
If you have questions feel free to dm me, email me, drop a line here!! -
I know my guy @cmanchegophoto is already in!! I’m super pumped!! Hope to see you all there!!
-
Link in the bio!!! I’ll also have some in the stories so you can swipe to get more information!!

It’s been unreal photographing racing in Hong Kong. There are so many great things about their racing product, from the jockey colony, to the fans, the punters and the handicap system of racing!!
-
I highly recommend checking it out... HKJC.com has information on every horse, pedigree info, race replays everything right there for free. I had someone ask me@where they could see Improbable’s Street Sense win... good question?!? I couldn’t find it... I think having all that information in wine place helps horse players but also helps build fans.

Jet lag was real today. I really wanted to get up and go to the track,  but it just wasn’t going to happen... not sure if it was editing 100s of photos all day yesterday or the 13 hour flight back, but I was dead today!!!
-
I caught the replay of Improbable’s work on @watchxbtv and it was really nice. He was floating over the ground. I also love that he’s got the big white face and white socks... it makes them fun to photograph.

The Magic Man, Joao Moreira... I’m not gonna lie that’s a sick nickname. It’s also the nickname of my favorite hockey player Pavel Datayuk, the namesake of the horse Pavel!!
-
Maybe it’s because I’m looking at so many pictures but jockeys all over the world have their unique ways they stand out. Moreira always has the white Gloves and almost always wears the super reflective goggles. Kinda like @santanajr__ always wears goggles with the white trim. We would do it in hockey, some guys wear their tongues on their skates flopped out, or a way of taping your stick to be different. -

So Jay Privman from @dailyracingform tweeted out that both Improbable and Game Winner are now both on course to make their seasonal debuts in the San Felipe Stakes at @santaanitapark.
-
I was pumped, didn’t even click the link and replied back, basically telling What about Instagrand!! Before I even clicked an read that he’s on track to run as well.
-
So if all goes well and according to plan, it looks like the 3 undefeated horses are going to face off.
-
I can’t tell you how pumped I am.

I’m always asked who was my favorite horse to photograph, and on the backside none was more fun to photograph than California Chrome. He was always playing g around, showing his tattoo and when the camera was on he always knew it!!

So apparently yesterday was California Chromes birthday... also his hockey @espinozasvictor returned to the saddle!!
-
I’m pumped he’s back riding. Baffert told a story at @santaanitapark Photo day about the Derby and his celebration on War Emblem. I wasn’t shooting then but I always wanted a shot of him celebrating as he crossed the wire!! I finally got mine in 2014 when he guided California Chrome to a decisive victory. -
This is what the grandstand is intended to look like without the NASCAR lights. I was fortunate to shoot 2 derby’s before the addition.

I don’t even know if reposting yourself is an acceptable thing, nor do I care!!! Just remember on this Derby Hype train with every writers Derby list, that way way back in early October I posted pics of a flashy nice movin 2 year old colt Named Will of War that I had to call @sam_bussanich while she was in Ireland cause I had to know who this horse was... -
So when you follow this account you aren’t just getting pics of horses your seeing stars before the rest of the racing world has a clue!!! #Repost @a_evers with @get_repost
・・・
I was just out this morning to make some artsy shots and scout locations for the workshop when I saw this horse coming head on, moving beautifully so I shot him comin around. As it turned out he is a Casse horse so I text @sam_bussanich and got a dissertation on how he’s named War of Will, they call him Wow and he’s gonna win the @breederscup Juvenile turf.
-
I did a little research on him and his mother is a half sister to 1997 @breederscup Mile Winner Spinning World. And if you couldn’t guess, he’s by War Front. He’s running Sunday in the Bourbon Stakes!

The only morning rush hour traffic I like to see... I hope my wife has an easy commute to come pick me up after work this evening. It’s one of my favorite things is coming home after a long shoot to getting picked up like it’s after school!!!

I hope I’m coming home to nice weather... I’m sick of the rain... it even poured today in Hong Kong.

I really hope we@get great weather for our workshop April 11-13! The sunrises at Santa Anita are absurd!!

As I was as waking to the parade ring with the jockeys, it reminded me of walking out of the locker room with my teammates heading to the ice for a game. -
I tried to replicate that feel with this shot. To feel as if you were one of the jockeys in the Hon Kong colony heading to the paddock.
-
The thing that is so unique about the Hong Kong jockey colony is these guys all live in the same building along with the trainers. There are no agents so they take care of all the negotiations for mounts themselves. -
Being so competitive I couldn’t imagine having to go home with the competition competing for food on my plate!!
-
I hope everyone has a good Monday out there... 13 more hours on this flight and the turbulence is already insane!!! -
This was taken with the @canoneosr and was one of the frames I really liked from the shoot. Ones thing is certain, when the R hits it produces some amazing files!!!

Eventual winner, Ecultant and @zacpurton break from barrier 9. - 
For my American audience, how they do things in HK is the highest rated horse via the Handicap is saddle towel 1 and it goes on down the list... then there is the barrier draw which reveals what stall the horse will break from.
-
It’s the a relatively easy concept for fans to come and an see who ranks where.. in the handicap system the highest rated horses carry the most weight.

He walked into the parade ring like he owned the place!!

I had all sorts of issues with that @canonusa Eos R... I don’t know whether it’s defective or what, but it locked up countless times where it wasn’t a buffer, it was like the camera froze. LCD issues, and a wierd thing where images looks ultra distorted as if they had been skewed in photoshop.
-
So instead of relying on that cam, I stuck much more to the 400mm today, glad to hit this one of trainer John Moore patting Beauty Generation while @zacpurton celebrates with a cheering crowd!!
-
Another side note... that dark building in the background was where my cab driver dropped me off today... 1 kilometer always from the entrance... I had my lost in translation moment for the day.
