Metromix sent me to Churchill Downs on Friday for the beginning of the Paddock Concert series, opening up with artist Eric Lindell. I love assignments like this because I can show people there’s life at the track after the Kentucky Derby. Ruth Wilkins and Katherine Kenney certainly show that.
The night air kept fans in high spirits while Eric Lindell played their hearts out. So much so that spontaneous dancing broke out all over the paddock area. For my first visit to the paddock for entertainment, my camera clicked and clicked and, I think, started smoking at one point.
Special thinks to Churchill Downs for the hospitality, Eric Lindell for the jams and Metromix for the opportunity to make more interesting pictures. More preview photos below and the complete gallery here.
