Rare Cure takes first

Eddie Martin, Jr. rides Rare Cure (No. 1, right) to a first place finish in the 8th running of the Bob Johnson Memorial race at Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie on Saturday, July 3, 2004. Other finishers were (in order) Pie N Burger (No. 5) ridden by Guy Smith, Lights on Broadway (No. 6) ridden by Larry Taylor, and Guaranteed Sweep (No. 4) ridden by Cliff Berry.
Although I prefer to shoot the races head-on, the sun was setting behind the horses as they finished (see the light on their back legs). Better to be safe than sorry when Sports only wants one race on deadline.
