Beholder in the morning at Keeneland with the fall foliage.

World Championships
Breeders' Cup Workouts

Date: 10/26/2015

Monday morning's gallops at Keeneland were marred by unexpected rain early with temperatures around 48 degrees and a chilly wind. Sunrise wasn't until almost 8am which is also when the tractors come out for the morning renovation break. I got a few horses before the break, but with the clouds and pre-dawn darkness the pictures are pretty dark. Not that many horses were out but more should be arriving this afternoon and tomorrow. The post position draw is this afternoon, so check back for all the entries this evening.

Here are photos for 28 of the horses on the track Monday morning. Click the small picture to see a larger version.
