Photo Day at the Races! Horse Racing at Golden Gate Fields!

These are intended to be SELF-GUIDED events with no instructors and you are welcome to sign up for any day. I am planning to attend the April 27th Photo Day.

Golden Gate Fields will be hosting their three photo days again starting 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 all-access tickets here:
