Race 1, Karekare 2011

Once a year the community of Karekare on Auckland’s West Coast has its legendary race day. Last Saturday’s event was to benefit the Lone Kauri Community School and Karekare Surf Lifesaving Club. Splendid weather, great food stalls, even Mr Miller’s coffee right there on the beach. The picture shows action in race 1.


  1. Funny for me to see a horse race on a beach! Great snap of it!

  3. A terrific shot of what appears to be a terrific sport…hope it’s not too hard on the horses, tho! When vacationing in Mazatlán, México one of our favorite pastimes is horseback riding on the beach. A wonderful pleasure.
