Cabin fever. Derby fever. Spring fever. Call it what you want. The gaggle of racing photographers had it in spades when they all flocked to Aqueduct for the first Saturday in March. The whole gang was present and accounted for and we shot the Aqueduct inner dirt with enthusiasm in our eyes and roses in our minds.

I Want Revenge and Jockeys star Joe Talamo won by over 8 lengths, thus capturing the imagination of many Bloggers and columnists. Captured a little gas money for me, too. I managed to hit the Gotham trifecta :^)

Did you watch the race? What did you think? Who is on the top of your Derby list?

    Lori- I’m proud to finally have a lens that is the object of someone’s envy :^)

    Funder- Yes, that’s his tongue!

    As always, loved the photos as well as your writing.
    I’m going to go ahead and say that I like …, I LOVE The Pamplemousse.
    Dunkirk would be my other choice.

    Great photos! and a great horse. Even so I am betting on The Pamplemousse for the K Derby.

      I like the ‘Mousse, too :^) Not sure if he’ll be Derby material, but I certainly like him. I’d love to see him on the turf.
