(Jockey Brian Joseph Hernandez, Jr. / Photos by Holly M. Smith)

Editor’s Note:

More photos from “Opening Sunday” to the Churchill Downs November Race Meet, from our very own Holly M. Smith.

There is no one I know who is more dedicated to her profession and committed to capturing the best images of the sport that she truly loves and has such a deep-rooted passion for portraying.

Her photos are truly pieces of work.
