(Goodnight Olive gets a tour of the paddock at Keeneland / All Photos by Holly M. Smith)

Editor’s Note:

I’ve been waiting patiently for my great friend and ally, Holly M. Smith, to finish up her “other work loads” to break free and get out to the racetrack. She is so good at capturing the heart of the horse and the soul of the admirer. And, on Saturday, a beautiful day in this Bluegrass, she was able to catch a wonderful sun rise and a horse set, or two.

Here’s her glimpses:
