AFTER more than seven years as a photographer, Western Australian sharp shooter Jodie Hallows has achieved one of her goals.
Attending the Pinjarra meeting earlier this week, the multi award-winning Hallows captured this sensational photo of the field travelling in ‘Indian file’.
As eye-catching as that it, the racing arrangement is not what makes the photo so unique.
It’s the fact each runner is airborne that has excited Hallow and social media, which has seen the picture draw attention from around the globe.
Along with requests from within Australia, Hallows has been contacted from organisations in the northern hemisphere.
Social media responses include references to the photo being “a once in a lifetime shot”, “a rare feat” and “absolutely amazing image”.
“I’m very thankful for the mind blowing response I’ve received for this very unique image I took at Pinjarra trots,” Hallow said.
“In just over seven years of photographing thousands of races, I’ve finally managed to capture all horses airborne mid race.
“I have so much love photographing these magnificent equine athletes.”
For the record, Classic Choice, which is at the tail of the field, scored in 2:02.2 over 2692 metres with Chris Voak in the cart.
Prepared by Barry Howlett, the handsome son of Sweet Lou took his record to three wins from six starts.
