The current camera rarely screws up by focussing on a near stationary object but it has happened in the past, so I simulated that idea. Positioned myself so horses by the inside rail would be framed by the outside one, focussed on the closest rail and shot away.

I like your perspective on this. It feels like the ground it a bit over-sharpened, with many visible pixels.

Nice use of motion blur. I would give this a very high vote if this were a motion blur or general blur challenge. The background does appear to be slightly OOF however, but the motion blurred horse is the main thing my eye is drawn to.
