A Day at the Races

On a close-to-perfect spring day I drove to Broadview, a spectacular 500 acre site near The Plains, Va. where the Virginia Gold Cup has its home. I wanted to wander around one of America’s most famous steeplechase events and shoot some of the pageantry and festivities.

The horses are pretty spectacular but for me this type of event is all about the people and at more than 50,000 in attendance it was definitely less about the sport and more about drinking, betting, cigars and…drinking.

Think I need a better hat next time.
