Del Mar Racetrack, San Diego County, CA
I tried to shoot at a slow enough shutter speed to give the illusion of motion, yet to keep the horses head and the rider somewhat sharp. Speeds of between 1/40 and 1/60 second seemed to give me the best results...

Thanks... At 1/125 second, the horse's legs and hooves did show some blurring but, not as much as I expected or wanted. I used aperture priority and changed the shutter speeds by shifting the f/stop...

I also like the blurred background from the slower shutter speeds better...
