    Just for fun really - the original only had the jockey's stomachs and legs in - I'd got the shots I wanted some seconds earlier and tried for something different as they went past me - bloomin' close finish to this race as you can probably guess.

    What I liked about this shot is it makes you look a second time to check out which leg goes on which horse. Looks really simple at first then you have to check again. :)

    The other thing that amazes me is this was 1/1600 sec, and my camera can cope with 1/4000 sec - that's quite something for a mechanical mechanism that is designed to function day in, day out for 150,000 activations.

    :)

    Thank you both - this was a close finish and I took nearly 30 of the final run in. I chopped their heads off here so thought to do something different.
