The Sights and Sounds of the 2012 Belmont Stakes

Let’s go back and enjoy the sights sounds of the three weeks between the Preakness and the 2012 Belmont Stakes.  It was quite an important period for horse racing.  Horse racing needed a boost.

That begins a Horse Racing Nation which includes many of my photos and a video from Belmont Park.  I spent several days covering the Belmont Stakes by visiting I’ll Have Another’s barn, observing runners in the paddock, watching morning works, and hanging with the media in the press box.  Here is the HRN.com link to the full article The_Sights_and_Sounds.  The article is based on these photos.
