Default McCraken Breezing...

I went in search of some horsepower yesterday morning and got this flying shot of a 3 year old, breezing thru 4 furlongs in 49 2/5 seconds at what would be the finish line…

Doesn’t mean much now, but it might later. His name is McCraken, and if he wins his next start (this Saturday) he will be one of the favorites in the 2017 Kentucky Derby, the first Saturday of May...

So good timing on my part to be there to see him breeze by, and good if you remember and watch "The Derby"....

For some who follow, this is with my newly acquired Olympus 40-150 f/2.8 lens on an E-M1 body in cloudy chilly weather....

The title intrigued me, so Im glad I had a look, nice shot, though the sky's not helping this one its a nice composition.

Hope he gets a start

Great shot with all four feet off the ground

Please capture another with a different horse doing the same

Forgot to check this.... Anyway, McCraken ran a tune up, didn't go as planned. Not sure he will be in The Derby, but will see. I'd put a couple dollars on him just because.

Mupsuit, did you want more with other horses with all 4 feet off ground? I have more. And with 1 or more feet in the dirt. Oh, just made me think, is a race horse a sport/action... or a transportation.
