A Look Back at Ajax Downs: 2011 in review
When I look back on 2011 I remember the cold wet start to the 2011 season at Ajax Downs. The track was soaking and the day seemed very long. By the end of the day I wondered if I had any pictures that would be worth printing. This photo taken during the Ajax Downs Season Opener puts it all in to perspective. Seeing Peter Gross interviewing Chelsey Willick after her win seemed to set the tone for the rest of the year.
Ajax Downs Workouts
One day that surprised me was May 11, 2011 during a workout. Timing is often everything when taking photos of race horses and this picture of Erika Smilovsky is proof. Right out of the gates she was tossed head first over the horse and came very close to being trampled on.
