Horse Racing

Horse racing is an equestrian performance sport, typically involving two or more horses ridden by jockeys over a set distance, for competition. I enjoy the beauty of the animals, and the excitement of competition.

Churchill Downs

. I love to paint and draw horses in movement. I love the colorful uniforms, and the beauty and power of these animals. This is done in a very Expressionistic form, using Charcoal, ink, and graphite. The painting is large 18 X 24, mounted on Canson board, unframed. Truly unique one of a kind painting.

Pimlico Race Course

Pimlico Race Course is a thoroughbred horse racetrack in Baltimore, Maryland, most famous for hosting the Preakness Stakes. Its name is derived from the 1660s when English settlers named the area where the facility currently stands in honor of Olde Ben Pimlico's Tavern in London. The racetrack is nicknamed "Old Hilltop" after a small rise in the infield that became a favorite gathering place for thoroughbred trainers and race enthusiasts.[2] It is currently owned by the Stronach Group.
