Top photo taken approximately one second after I crossed the finish line on the lead. Second photo was the last fence of this 2 and 1/2 mile race. The gal behind me was on a Graustark colt, and I never thought we'd beat them! I was so tired afterwards, I had great difficulty pulling "Circus Rullah" up. He galloped out another half-mile. The rest of the five horse field was far behind by the end. This was the greatest and most terrifying day of my life. I discovered you don't race to the fences, they come straight at you.
