The 1968 English and Irish Horse of the Year,SIR IVOR, arrives at Blue Grass Field in Lexington, KY, on July 14, 1970.  Then 5, Sir Ivor took up stud duties at Claiborne Farm in nearby Paris, where he died in 1995.   Modern horse racing is quickly losing its permanent photographic record.

First, my apologies for not posting more blogs recently. The blog system is no longer Mac-friendly. Am working to figure a way around the problem... As happens every year, the Breeders' Cup provided a wealth of memorable moments and images.  Here's a first of at least two blogs, showing 50 images each, from my time at Santa Anita.

During the recently concluded Saratoga meet, I posted photos of smiling racetrackers on my Facebook page nearly every night.  Many were exercise riders, by sheer virtue of my spending so much time along the rail in the mornings. But morning, afternoon, or evening, if you'd smile, I'd post your pic.  I've never seen a track where more people smile than at 'the Spa'!

The below stories are slightly different versions of the print stories appearing in DRF Weekend on Saturday, July 20.  Stories and photos by Barbara D. Livingston Long before dawn, before the rest of the world stirs, exercise riders head to work. These men and women work outdoors in sun, rain, or snow, on sweltering and bone-chilling days. Some have no days off. Some live on-track. Many move regularly, sometimes with just a day’s notice.
