Are you ready for the race of your life?  This thoroughbred and jockeyare on a mission to win first place. In full stride this horse gallopshis way to a fast finish. Running on a grass track this horse refusesto lose this derby. He exerts full speed as he pushes against thewind, his tail fly’s back with force, as the jockey encourages hispartner to go full speed ahead. The jockey and the Horse both wear alook of determination as they stare down the finish line.  The Horselets out a neigh while pushing himself to the limit.

The jockey stays concentrated as he kicks hisheels inward, keeping his feet in the stirrups. This is a great actionpiece and deserves to be displayed up front and center on a glorywall.  This is a great gift to give for an avid horse lover it is alsosuitable for the person with drive in their life and is signed by Artist Milo.Below is information about Thoroughbreds:The Thoroughbred is a horse breed best known for its use in horseracing.

Thoroughbreds are considered a "hot-blooded"horse, known for their agility, speed and spirit.The Thoroughbred as it is known today was first developed in 17th and18th century England, when native mares were crossbred with importedArabian stallions. All modern Thoroughbreds can trace their pedigreesto three stallions originally imported into England in the 1600s and1700s, and to 74 foundation mares of English and Oriental (Arabian orBarb) blood. During the 1700s and 1800s, the Thoroughbred breed spreadthroughout the world; they were imported into North America startingin 1730 and into Australia, Europe, Japan and South America during the1800s. Millions of Thoroughbreds exist worldwide today, with over118,000 foals registered each year worldwide.Thoroughbreds are used mainly for racing, but are also bred for otherriding disciplines, such as show jumping, combined training, dressage,polo, and fox hunting. They are also commonly cross-bred with otherbreeds to create new breeds or to improve existing ones, and have beeninfluential in the creation of many important breeds, such as theQuarter Horse, the Standard bred, the Anglo-Arabian, and various Warmblood breeds. _x000D_
