From the artist:
I painted this work at Werribee after a full week of capturing Spring Racing on paper. I was overflowing with colour and spirit after a full Cup week. For this work, it was important to me to capture the lightness and spirit of the moment, the freedom and delight in the ponies as they get their gallop. The gentle treed surrounds of Werribee were treated gently as they let the stars of the day do just that.
I was delighted with the lightness of this finished work. The way the lightness lets the horses breathe, forever lifeful.
