It takes a lot of time, and money, to prepare thoroughbreds for a race day. At dawn the horses are exercised in various ways. Swimming the horses in the river is very popular. I have featured this activity before, but this scene is at Kitchner St Boat Ramp in Grafton.
The most popular form of preparation is track work. It was too dark to capture but I liked how the riders wore hats with blinking red lights to avoid collisions in the pre-dawn gloom.
