Thoroughbred Derby Classic$44
In all sports, there is one event that athletes strive to reach, compete in and win. It's The Masters at Augusta for golfers, while a hockey player's goal is to win the Stanley Cup. For thoroughbred horse jockeys and trainers, the pinnacle of achievement is to win the Kentucky derby.
The Inspiration behind our Thoroughbred Derby Classic Art Print
As a kid growing up on a mixed farm in southern Ontario, we had every manner of four-legged animals afoot in the fields and barn. And while I never quite warmed up to them, my late brother's passion was his horses. He spent hours with them, lovingly grooming and training them. He would lean in and ride them across the pasture at a gallop, and I would sit on the fence watching and imagining my big brother someday riding one of his horses in a derby championship.
The jockey's classic silks in this print and his intense expression take me back to memories of watching derby championships with my brother. This print makes an excellent piece for any horse lover or derby fan.
