The Races.Hereford race course had been running for 241 years, with the first race appearing in 1771, until its end on December 16th 2012. During this final meet I wanted to take a look at the people who shape the atmosphere of the venue and who contributed to the legacy of sport at the grounds. For me it was the people who created the event and the characters they brought to it. It was a chance to observe and explore a very British tradition which has been a part of our culture since the 17th century. The images have a feel which does not tie them to an era but spans the entire lifetime of the racing venue. Joseph Horton.
