Bud Morton Photography

I began photographing scenic images when driving charter buses in the early eighty’s and quickly became interested in photographing horse racing and action sports. During the last thirty years I have been able to photograph many historic events in the sport of horse racing and have had images published in many national magazines and several books. An avid runner I have also have had published images in several running books and ran The Boston Marathon. I’ve won many awards for my images at local camera clubs. Photos can be seen on my website at www.budmortonphotography.com.

Turf Classic Day

The Turf Classic

Ken and Sarah Ramsey’s Big Blue Kitten set a course record and punched his ticket to this year’s Breeders’ Cup Turf by winning The Joe Hirsh Turf Classic. Big Blue Kitten notched his third win of the year and second Grade I as he won The United Nations Handicap this summer. The course record time for Big Blue Kitten was 2:24.25
and Joe Bravo was the jockey

The Gallant Broom

Jose Ortiz piloted odds on favorite La Verdad to a convincing win in this year’s edition of The Grade II Gallant Broom. La Verdad has had five wins in as many starts this year and appears to be heading to Keeneland for The Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint.

The Vosburgh

Stonestreet Stable’s Rock Fall notched his second straight Grade I win and earned a ticket to The Breeders’ Cup with a gutsy win in The Vosburgh. Rock Fall was shipped to Keeneland to prepare for the cup and sadly broke down while training and had to be euthanized.
