Colonial Cup steeplechase

My annual rite of fall is to hit the closing steeplechase of the season in Camden, S.C., and the kids were with me for their fall break. Hayes and I, of course, have a good time. It's a little difficult to entertain Cort the whole time since he's not that into horses but there were skydivers to set off the races and that was a big hit with him.

 Here's Keri Brion with Divine Fortune prior to the running of the Colonial Cup.
 My old friend, Ken Furlong, an outrider for the races and the kids getting their picture made with a horse of course.
 Here the eventual winner of the Colonial Cup, Demonstrative, heads to the course with jockey Matt McCarron. Demonstrative came from the very back of the pack at the last jump to win the race - it was a gutsy move from a capable horse!
