A Day at the Races by Peter Bartlett
Race goers are an eclectic group. At one extreme there is the serious punter and at the other, the casual race goer simply enjoying a day out. There are those that go to be seen as well as to see, the high-rollers, the young, the old and those in between, the wealthy and those less so, the country set and the townies that just go to party.
The mix of attendees is endless, creating a colourful atmosphere within the spectator enclosures as people circulate between the stands, the betting ring, the bars, and the parade ring interacting and engaging with one another.
Yorkshire based street photographer Peter Bartlett spent much of 2019 visiting race meetings to capture a fly on the wall document of attendees enjoying a day out. Studying the odds, enjoying a drink, having a laugh, socialising and occasionally soaking up the action, Peter’s candid photos capture the frivolity of pre-pandemic race days.
