Editor’s Note:

It was a perfect day. And, a perfect night. At a perfect venue. With perfect horse racing.

It doesn’t get more perfect than that.

Take a look — through the eyes and lenses of the expert team at Coady Photography — at Thursday’s twilight opening day/night. Spectacular views. Spectacular looks. Spectacular.
