Almost wordless Wednesday
Arabian racing is one of those events that I always think of as being more prevalent in the model world than real life. Over the years, I've seen a lot of model Arabian racehorses, but it wasn't until this past August that I actually had a chance to see the real thing. Today's pictures show a group of Arabian racehorses competing in a mile and one sixteenth race at Arapahoe Park in Aurora, Colorado. The first group of photos follows the horses as the enter the paddock area, proceed to the walking ring and step onto the track for the post parade. The next group will show the actual race.
