At the Half Mile Mark, It's... - #1208

fari

Harness racing has not been a part of most county fairs for quite a while.  The excitement of the start of a race.  The passing done on the backstretch.  The anticipation as the race passes in front of the grandstand with the announcement of "At the Half Mile Mark, It's...", followed with cheers for favorites as the race continues on to the last half mile.  Then finally the charge out of the final turn to the finish line with pounding hoofs from a powerful steed pulling a driver crouched in his sulky.  The collecting and paying of bets, it's a lost experience for many, until now.  "At the Half Mile Mark" brings back the memory of the excitement found at many county fairs, the Door County Fair was one of them.

Original watercolor by PaPa Giz, part of a series of eight from the County Fair - 14"x10" - #1208 - SOLD - Prints will also be available.
