National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame’s Fourth Annual Photo Finish Exhibition Opens Nov. 2

The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame’s fourth annual Photo Finish exhibition will open in the von Stade Gallery on Wednesday, Nov. 2. The exhibit’s images will also be available on the Museum’s website at

Photo Finish features selected amateur and professional photographs that document the entire racing experience, from the farm and the backstretch to the winner’s circle. Each image captures an element of the strength, beauty, and emotion of the sport of racing. Photographers from 17 states and Ireland are represented in the exhibit.

“We are excited for the opportunity to provide a platform for these talented photographers to showcase the beauty, drama, and emotion of the great sport of thoroughbred racing,” said Jessica Cloer, the National Museum of Racing’s curator.

Remi Bellocq, Alicia Hughes, Sally Jeffords, and Tod Marks, served as the judges for Photo Finish, providing representation from the racing and arts communities. The von Stade Gallery exhibit will remain on display through Feb. 5, 2023, and the online exhibition will be available through October 2023.

The call for submissions for the fifth annual Photo Finish exhibition will be announced in 2023.
