The Young Contender

A young two year old horse competing in a yearly event called the Aiken Trials here SC. It started in 1942 where they give young horses (two year olds) an opportunity to experience every aspect of live racing. This helps them get use to the cheering crowds, and the other horses competing. This youngster had the softest, kindest, eye. I love how you can see the reflection of the track ahead of him, and another horse in his eye. With his mouth slightly open, you can barely see his young teeth.
