Lee Humphreys, a surgeon at Derriford Hospital in Plymouth, has been looking after jockeys on racedays for over a decade. Over the course of last season, he undertook a project to capture images of those who work at Cheltenham Racecourse, both permanent and raceday staff.  The stunning images have been collated into an exhibition for racegoers to enjoy.


Lee's photography exhibition will be hosted on all three days of The November Meeting, with donations towards Racing Welfare, who support those who work in the racing industry. 


The exhibition will be held in the Club and Tattersalls enclosure, don't miss out on seeing his outstanding work.
