Racing Respite. Original oil on canvas. Framed



Short Description

Original oil on canvas. 19 inches x 23 inches including frame.
This mare was trained by the leading race horse trainer of the NY breds, and was taken in to a warmblood breeding program and given a career. She posted fast times and was highly regarded in her racing career. When I met Versailles WVH I was immediately taken with her tremendous presence and 'can do' attitude which is typical of the Tomorrows Cat bloodline. It is wonderful to see racehorses in their second careers where they are well tended and though it took a season off for the mare to catch, she is presently in foal to the world renowned Dutch Warmblood stallion, Gambol. An Olympic calibre dressage horse. I am hoping to follow this horse through her first foaling and capture more of her life on canvas through the next several years. You cannot beat the beauty of a thoroughbred head as an artist, or the heart of a thoroughbred as a rider.
