The famous photo of the 1933 Derby finish shows the jockeys fighting it out as BROKERS TIP (blinkers) and HEAD PLAY come to the finish.

Probably the most famous photo of the legendary racehorse Seabiscuit, beating "the fastest horse in the world" War Admiral at Pimlico, November 1st, 1938. Both horse and jockey George Woolf gaze right into the camera while all else is a blur. I love this photo.
