Delaware Handicap Day in Photos!

 

Outside of writing, one of my favorite hobbies is taking photos. Doesn't matter if it's nature, soccer, baseball, family outings, or horse racing. So it was no surprise that when I traveled up to Delaware Park for the Del Cap, that I had my camera with me every step of the way. Here are some of the moments I captured.

It was an amazing day, filled with amazing people. Was so glad I got to meet HRN's Tony BadaBing and his cousin Bob Murphy and the Stanco Clan. I hope everyone there enjoyed themselves as much as I did.

For as long as i can remember I have always loved horses and writing. The first race I ever watched was War Emblem's Preakness Stakes, but I didn't really start to get into racing until the next year where watched and cheered Empire Maker through the Derby, and yes, the Belmont.

I didn't begin writing until a few years later, when I created my own blog Horsin' Around. It didn't take long for me to realize that my niche was stirring the pot and creating heated debates, especially during the time of Big Brown vs Curlin and Rachel Alexandra vs Zenyatta. I was a Curlin and Rachel fan.

Now I am here under the name of Dead Heat Debates, and hoping to live up to that name. Have fun and let the opinions fly!
