Windsor Races

A number of us from Software AG went to Windsor Races last night. Two firsts for me:

  • Both of the horses I backed came in second (on the only other occasion I went racing I didn’t have a horse finish higher than 5th) so I was able to experience collecting winnings from the bookmakers. My undoubted skill netted a tidy profit of £4. I bet the bookies are really scared now!
  • I had a chance to play with my new telephoto lens. This was more enjoyable than backing the horses if I’m honest.

The photograph below is my favourite from the evening’s sport. If I’ve figured out the racecard correctly, it’s Top Town Girl, owned by Landmark Racing Limited and ridden by Seb Sanders, finishing 4th in the K & L Gates Handicap Stakes.
