(“Stars of Tomorrow” Stakes highlight the Saturday card / All Photos by Holly M. Smith)

Editor’s Note:

It was just a few years ago when Churchill Downs decided to close out its’ year of great racing and highlight it’s annual November Race Meet with a day to showcase the future stars of the game and some potential standouts for the upcoming KY Oaks and KY Derby the following Spring.

The track called it “Stars of Tomorrow.”

The fans called it great fun.

And, our very own Holly M. Smith was there — all day — to call it her own opportunity to catch a few shooting stars in slow-motion action.

Here are some of her looks, amazing as always:
