A photographer being in the right place at the right time might be viewed as luck by some, but British photographer Michael Harris has a knack of doing it often.

He took the above picture of two legendary Nicky Henderson-trained jumps racehorses Sprinter Sacre and Altior.

They used to be stablemates and although Sprinter Sacre is four years older than Altior they both won Group 1s at the 2016 Cheltenham Festival, although for both that was just one of many Group 1 victories.

They clearly recognised each other when being reunited at the Lambourn Open Day on April 7 this year and were happy to see each other again.

The below picture is of them meeting up again before spending some close moments together as depicted in the top picture.
