Throwback Thursday: Winner’s Circle

This week’s #ThrowbackThursday is a real winner!

This black and white acetate negative features a jockey, wearing the number 3, sitting on his horse in the winner’s circle at the Ak-Sar-Ben Racetrack in Omaha, Nebraska. This image was captured by William Wentworth, who was both a freelance and commercial photographer in Omaha. It is published and owned by The Durham Museum.
