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.
