October Fest At Suffolk Downs: The Races
Just an action photo report from the latest 2015 Live Racing Festival at Suffolk Downs on October 3, 2015.
It was a sad time when the racing track was closed in November 2013. Different people come to the place for various reasons. Gambling, socializing, watching the horses and racing crews in action, enjoying outdoors – those are just a few reasons to come. I was an occasional visitor interested in making photos of the people and horses.
Despite the rainy and windy fall weather, the fest was a great fun to watch. Over 8500 people attended and it was fun to see familiar faces of jockeys, trainers, players and all entourage of the Suffolk Downs.
Action photos of the racing is, by many accounts, the main focus of photo sessions here. The slide show presents some of the shots taken during the 12 races last Saturday.
