Coming back home in my silver bullet last Friday, I decided to go take photos of the Steeplechase. This is Page road off Old Hickory Blvd.
I took this photo to my right while I was stopped taking the first photo.
The Grand stand became my target.
I made it and I am now standing behind the Grand Stand. There was one other car parked here but no occupant. They were probably running or walking.


This and the next photos were taken from the same spot and I took the photos from right to left.







This was not a planned detour just one of those spur of the moment photo opt. The quite solitude of the fields without horses and the bustle of people and lots of ladies in hats during the Iroquois was just too beautiful not to share.
I only saw two people walking and one runner while standing there.
The kitty justice is this gem awaits the horses to jump those hedges.

Still showing off in the Silver Bullet huh.

Boy I bet on race day the place is jumping (pun intended). I have only seen a steeplechase on TV but it would be very exciting in person. Lovely countryside. MB

Lady Di,

What gorgeous photos. This place is awesome. Glad you were able to share it with us. I see your trees are still dressed in their autumn gowns. Unfortunately, our trees are pretty much bare.

Wishing you a wonderful day.
Blessings,
Mary

Living within a few miles you would think I would have gone once, but the crowds are outrageous. Peace

I was driving the silver bullet home after the repairs when it hit me to go take photos of the Steeple chase grounds. Hope you and Peter have LOADS OF FUN. Peace

Mary
Some of the smaller trees have a few leaves left but the larger ones are bare and we have lots more sky now. Peace
