The 1997 Hennessy Cognac Gold Cup (Sir Peter OSullevans Last Race) by Claire Eva Burton.

Claire Eva Burtons new limited edition print, The 1997 Hennessy Cognat. Gold Cup (Sir Peter OSullivens Last Race) was painted to commemorate the retirement of the nations Voice ol Broadcasting, the great Sir Peter OSullevan. The painting portrays the victory of Suny Bay at the Hennessy Cognac Gold Cup Handicap Chase, which was run at Newbury on November 29th 1997 and which was the last race on which Sir Peter commentated for the BBC. Claire Eva Burtons powerful image depicts an exciting moment one mile from home, at the fourteenth fence, on the second circuit of this major race, The grey, Suny Bay, flanked on the near side by, Barton Bank and on the far side by Belmont Boy, was, eventually ridden to victory in front of a crowd of 17.000 by Graham Bradley, the veteran jockey, who had last ridden a winner in this race fifteen years before. Despite a bad error at the fourth fence, Suny Bay stayed on strongly to run another great horse, Barton Bank, into second place. For Sir Peter OSullevan, the afternoon was an emotional one, capped when his own colours were carried to victory by Sounds Fyne in a later race. Sir Peters horse came in at the genorous, odds of 12-1 but, unfortunately I didnt have a shilling onit he said later.

Claire Eva Burton

Claire Eva Button ranks, as one of Britains leading contemporary equestrian painters. Her paintings are realistic depictions of all that is powerful, dynamic and colourful within the racing world. Born in 1955, Claire Eva Burton had a passion for horses from her earliest childhood. She spent every available waking moment with the ponies at her local stables or sketching horses and landscapes with her inspirational and artistic mother. Whilst attending the Medway College of Art, she maintained her interest in horses, and in racing by riding out regularly in Epsom for leading trainers. Once she had finished college, she spent even more time at the stables, supplementing her income by selling equestrian paintings both to owners and trainers who were known to her and to the general public through tradestands at various racecourses. Following a painful fall, Claire Eva Burton concentrated increasingly on her painting and, in 1981, her work came to the attention of the directors of the Cheltenham Racecourse. At the age of 26, she found herself entrusted with a commission to paint a series of twelve pictures for Her Majesty The Queen Mothers private box. A one-man exhibition in Londons Bond Street soon followed, further establishing her growing reputation. Now, on the strength of her great popular success, Claire Eva Burton has been able to expand her artistic horizons to embrace new subjects and to explore new styles but she remains very much an artist at the peak of her profession.

 So Tell The Spartans, Stranger passing by that here, Obedient to their laws, we lie.   In 480 BC the Spartans tried to defend the pass at Thermopylae against the Persians led by Xerxes.  The Persian fleet had sailed along the coastline from northern Greece into the Gulf of Malia on the eastern Aegean Sea towards the mountains at Thermopylae. The Greek General and King Leonidas led the Greeks  and tried to defend the pass of Thermopylae.  All the defending Spartans were killed during the Battle of Thermopylae. Their defence and courage provided inspiration to the Greeks, and the following year the Greeks won battles against their old enemy the Persians.
