Horse Racing and Thoroughbred Art
Title of bronze shown below : THOROUGHBRED HANDICAP HORSE|
Thoroughbred art or horse racing art, is a genre as old as mankind's efforts to breed fast horses.
The Horse racing art displayed below is an early tribute by an internationally known sculptor whose life was influenced from childhood on by the deepness of heart and nobility of character of so many racing handicap champions of the turf. The Thoroughbred art below honors champions of the field and steeplechasing and the personal champions of her own stable and her own heart.
This artist's heart remains engaged with Thoroughbred art although she has also created life size bronzes of show horses for The Kentucky Horse Park. Horse racing art and the living art of the Thoroughbred is an ongoing passion.
The days preceding and including the racing days of Kelso and Forego inspired the creation of the Thoroughbred art bronze shown below, but the ongoing nobility of the Thoroughbred continues to inspire us all in so many ways, including the many depictions of horse racing art throughout the world.

This Thoroughbred art is a tribute to the many handicap stars of racing who,
with great heart and stamina, give so generously of themselves.
Thoroughbred art or horse racing art is so well beloved, yet there are very few competitive areas in the equine world where one does not find the Thoroughbred as a supreme sporthorse (dressage, hunters, jumpers, eventing, carriage, etc). It is no wonder Thoroughbred art works have followed the breed. The heart and class of the Thoroughbred is not only evident in racing tracks of the world, and horse racing art, but in every endeavor in which the Thoroughbred is asked to perform. And aside from the racing world, these individuals are also treasured as family riding horses. Thoroughbred Art works capture the sentiment and the memory.
The sport of racing is followed world wide, but the value of the Thoroughbred goes far beyond their success on the racing tracks and fields. Still the raw courage, stamina and deep heart of the racing handicap horses and their repeated years of service in racing cannot be given too high of a tribute, hence the clear and deep felt inspiration for this art edition.
really took off with the establishment of the Thoroughbred as a breed and the
stupendous difference that made to racing because
Thoroughbred horses can achieve racing speeds around 40 miles and hour for a
distance of a mile and hold undisputed reign as king of racing. So it is
no surprise that horse racing art depicting the racing world and race horses are popular the world over.
