This week’s slideshow is a little bigger than others. With July 4th being mid-week, we didn’t really know where to start and end, so with bookend big weekends of racing, you get everything. Enjoy the work of the photographers at Eclipse Sportswire

Follow I’ll Have Another’s second-place finish in last year’s Best Pal, to his run through four straight graded stakes win, including the first two legs of the Triple Crown. For six of I’ll Have Another’s seven races, the photographers of Eclipse Sportswire were there. Enjoy the chestnut colt’s journey to the brink of Triple Crown greatness.

What a week in Louisville for the Eclipse Sportswire crew. Well done. Top to bottom, hopefully you feel like these photos tell a story and take you to a place you have never been. Enjoy.
