Maryjean’s view from the ‘dark side’

Former Herald-Leader racing writer Maryjean Wall, who has often been our partner when covering all things thoroughbred, worked at the recent Breeder’s Cup as *GASP* a photographer!

She outlines her days in Santa Anita working for Team Z and the Thoroughbred Times on her blog.

“But that’s what it’s like, I learned, on photo side at a major event: pressure, pressure, pressure, with far more of it than the writers experience. I’m not going to go so far as to say the writers are coddled in their press box. But they do have time to handicap and bet between races. The shooters do not.”
