Backstretch Break

Horses break from the starting gate on the backstretch at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif., U.S.A. It's so quiet back there without the crowd, you can hear all the trash talk, every yell, all the clanging metal and every pounding hoof. This is race 9 on Jan. 29, 2011, and the pretty grey on the inside is Serene Sophia, a half-sister to multiple grade 1 winner Brother Derek.
