The one and only

Sadler’s Wells

The most amazing horse I have EVER met. This boy was a star and he knew it. The empire of Coolmore stud was build on this stallions abilities. His bloodline is in the ancestry lines of racehorses worldwide. He was a legend alive. And even though he passed away at the age of 30 in 2011, his name will be remembered for generations to come.

After his death, his body went for taxidermy. And now he once again looks out over the fields of Coolmore from his viewing point in the Legacy room on the stud farm. Me for one, I am glad I met him alive. I got many photos of him and I am sure I will create many more paintings of him too.

I created paintings of some other Coolmore stallions too. Here are some links to take you to YEATS, HIGH CHAPARRAL, and GALILEO. All sires in their own right and offsprings of Sadler’s Wells.
