Day at the races.

Today there was racing on the cards.

We had hoped to be able to see them from Jubilee Wood, but there were notices on the gates saying that there was no access due to the racing.

So we decided to walk up through the wood.

Autumnal colours were plentiful.

With it being so mild, it was hard to believe we are creeping ever closer to December and Christmas.

At one of the entrances to the racecourse a Marshall is on guard and the camera man is filming the racing.

We decided to walk back through the wood and down on to the road, to take us to the racecourse. Hoping we could see the racing from along side the racecourse car park. We were in luck.

No sooner we arrived, Jockeys and their mounts were heading off to the start.

Perfect day for racing and the ground looked good.

Up and over.

No fallers.

Majestic watching them jump.

We only stayed for the one race, but we will definitely go back and I will take my long lens next time. I actually feel we are so lucky living so close to the racecourse. Not just for the racing, but it is a beautiful place to walk.
