Masterful Portraits of Champion Racehorses
Anthony Alonso has been painting the Thoroughbred scene since the 1970s with his
masterful portraits of champions and scenes of racetrack life.
In this new book, more than 150 original oil paintings are featured,
containing portraits of stars such as Secretariat, Ruffian, Barbaro and Kelso as
well as racing's finest riders and trainers. The stretch run of the 1997 Belmont
Stakes, Cigar galloping home in isolated splendor and Seattle Slew racing the
wind are among the fine action scenes.
Alonso's paintings are on display at major racetracks throughout the country
and his work can be found in private collections throughout the world. A coffee
table-sized volume with full-color portraits and gilt-edge pages, this is a
treasured gift for all who love racing.
