500th Kiplingcotes Derby 2019
The Kiplingcotes Derby is the oldest horse race in the English calendar and this was the 500th running. It is a four mile cross country course across farm lanes near Market Weighton, East Yorkshire.
I had wanted to go for a couple of years but this was the first I was free. The weather was bright and dry but in March, not that warm.
My aim was to produce a series of pictures that showed the event rather than just the race. The large number of spectators made a great atmosphere and with the competitors hopefully allowed me to produce the pictures I wanted.
I intend to return for more runnings of the race as I think it one of the best races I have attended.
