Riassunto: Embracing a photographic collection as fascinating as Muybridge, as beautiful as Vavra, and as compelling as any Eclipse Award winner, this behind-the-scenes, full-color book showing Santa Anita racetrack in the early mornings is the first of its kind. With unmistakable passion for horse and place, Karen S. Davis exalts in every photo the life of a thoroughbred at perhaps the world's most beautiful racetrack, standing beneath the majestic San Gabriel Mountains of Southern California. Through her eyes we see the sun rise, seasons change, and horses run free, delicately entwined with Shakespeare's enduring equine imagery.
Dall'autore: Eddie Delahoussaye says it best in the Preface: Morning at Santa Anita racetrack is like no other time and place on earth. The average racing enthusiast enjoys the afternoon fanfare of racing, but never sees the way of life that begins well before dawn and continues 365 days of the year, year in and year out. Routine and dangerous at the same time, it’s as unpredictable and beautiful as the horses themselves and the changing sunrises over the San Gabriel Mountains.
