(Lady of Luxury sets the course record / Photos by Holly M. Smith)

Editor’s Note:

It was beautiful on Saturday. (And, Sunday, too.) The perfect days to catch some rays and some racing at the big oval at Churchill Downs.

And, that’s exactly what our very own Holly M. Smith did.

She caught a few other things, along the way, too.

Some horses in action.

Some beautiful scenes.

Some wonderful photos.

Take a look and see:
