Horse Racing Photo Shoot

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • Hey,

    Just noticed that Golden Gate Fields will be hosting their photo days again on April 27. I did this last year, it was really fun, but there are limited spots. Its a cool day where you get to see the horses up close and get some action shots!!!

    If anyone's interested you can buy your tickets here:

    this is a great idea ! i frequently watch the races via "calracing.com" - both live and past - from GGF and Del Mar. Being at the finish line is really something as you can actually feel the thundering of these thoroughbreds as they charge to the end.

    How can I purchase a ticket for the "Horse Racing Photo Shoot". Went to "www.goldengatefields.com" and tried to purchase the ticket....?

      Read the comments below, Bridget. The last time they did this was several years ago. But you can go anytime to take photos, just won't have access to the paddocks or corners.

    Any date set yet?

    You can go anytime and shoot, but they only have a photo day very occasionally. They had two 2 years ago and maybe one last year. Didn't see one on this year's calendar, but maybe someone else has.

    "They do it twice a year?" Meaning people who can photograph up close? Or can we pick a date and go anytime?

    They do it twice a year. Next one will be in Sept or Oct.

    I did this last year as well. it's a lot of fun, you get to go right up to the start and finish lines to shoot

    I believe this was last year. No Photo Day yet scheduled for 2014. If they do post it, it's a great event!

    I don't see the signup on that page and the page lists the data as 2013. ????

    Wicked! An opportunity to try out some new lens and techniques.

    do you need a long range lens for it to be worthwhile?
