The Nelson Photo News



Winter Trots

This could hardly have been called a winter meeting. Spring-like weather drew big entries and crowds, and the track was bone hard for the two-day meeting of the Nelson Trotting Club.


Reprints of all photographs taken by our photographers are obtainable from Peter Cooper Studio Trafalgar Street, Nelson.


Speed is the essence of the racing game, and here our camera blurs the horses as they pass the stand.


Picking a winner are Kath Patterson, Myra Fowler and Ruth Richards.


Jack Shea keeps an eye on the horses before sending them away.


Getting the griff straight from the horse's mouth are Willmott and Diana Fair.
