I look forward to opening day of Keeneland’s spring and fall meets every year. It is fascinating to me to watch these amazing animals roar by at full speed and enjoy watching the tactics of a race as it unfolds. The opening of the Spring 2014 meet was begun in less than ideal weather conditions. Light rain and mist early on gave way to clearing skies but increasingly strong winds. The racing was great even if the crowd was not as large as it might have been. These are a few of the pictures from my day enjoying the races.
