When photographer Tod Marks first entered into the steeplechase arena most of the veteran media wanted to know, “Who’s the new guy?” They soon found that he was hardly new to the world of horse racing.

Marks uses his expertise as a photojournalist to get intense action images combined with great emotion at the various steeplechase venues. He travels to almost all the major National Steeplechase Association meets and his work is well-represented in the NSA yearbook and in the industry publication, the Steeplechase Times, where he has been working ever since first helping with the Sean Clancy’s book “Saratoga Days” and the Saratoga Special newspaper back in 2000.
