(Churchill Downs good night / Photos by Holly M. Smith)

Editor’s Note:

It was a bit chilly. It was a bit rainy. And, it was a bit perfect.

Our very own Holly M. Smith, equipped with rain gear and cameras, were on the job and ready for the action on Saturday night.

She caught it all.

In stoic black and white glory.

In perfect colorful scenes.

Here’s her looks. And, as always, spectacular.
