I was commissioned to do an oil painting of the great racehorse and stud, Man O War. Man O War raced 21 times and won all but one. In his seventh race, the Sanford Stakes at Saratoga, he got beaten a nose by Upset. This was during the days before starting gates were invented. Back then they had the horses line up behind a rope that was lifted when the race started. Man O War was facing in the opposite direction when they lifted the rope.
This is a giclee print of the great race horse. This prints shows off his beautiful coloring and the majestic look in his eye, by using a dark background.
