My Story - Margaret Burlingham Photography

My Story

Perhaps like you, I have always loved horses and country life.   My dream was to live on a farm and own race horses.  

When I reached that dream, I wanted the best images I could get of my horses and got serious about photography.

One of my first race horses, Saint Leon (to the left), was a $5000 claimer who went forward with trainer Michele Boyce and jockey ET Baird to win the Arlington Sprint Listed Stake three years in a row.  What a dream come true!  I was hooked for life and now race under the name Oak Rock Racing LLC.

On the right are my three OTTB (Off-Track Thoroughbreds) pasture pets; Conchacer, Royally Robbed, Knight Fighter.

On the Chicago racing circuit of Arlington Park and Hawthorne Race Course I support the Galloping Out retirement/rehoming program and am a volunteer photographer for CANTER-Chicago, a listing service that advertises retiring race horses.  It is so gratifying when former race horses find a new career and loving home.

Many other photographs come from the daily activities on our 500 acre grain and hay farm in Southern Wisconsin.

In 2018 I started shooting races for Coady Photography at Arlington Park and exhibiting in Gallery 223 in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.  You can also find my work on Alamy, Adobe, and Fotolia Stock.

I hope you find some enjoyment and inspiration in my photography and see you at the races!
