The Race That Never Was by Susan Crawford.


The Race That Never Was by Susan Crawford.

Susan Crawfords latest limited edition depicts the famous race that never was between two of the greatest flat horses of our time. In August 2000, Sheikh Mohammed, the owner of Dubai Millennium, challenged Michael Tabor, the owner of Montjeu. to an old-fashioned head-to-head match over ten furlongs between the two superstar colts, with a purse of $6 million to the winner. However, just twenty-four hours later, Dubai Millennium broke his right hind leg in training at Newmarket and effectively ended his career. The eagerly anticipated match had to be abandoned. Owned and bred by Sheikh Mohammeds Godolphin Racing, Dubai Millennium won nine out of ten career starts, including triumphant victories in the Prince of Waless Stakes at Ascot in June 2000 and the $6 million Dubai World Cup in March 2000, failing to win only the Epsom Derby. Montjeu, bred by Sir James Goldsmith and trained by John Hanmond, has already been victrious in a number of big races, including the Prix de lArc de Triomphe at Longchamps in October 1999 and the King,George VI & Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes at Ascot in July 2000. In her depiction of the Race That Never Was. Susan Crawford has painted Dubai Millennium, ridden by Frankie Dettori, and Montjeu, ridden by Mick Kinane, neck and neck a furlong from home. Who won? We will never know.

Susan Crawford

Susan Crawford is one of Britains finest contemporary equestrian artists. Born in the Scottish district of East Lothian in 1941, she grew up on the family farm on which her parents trained racehorses. She learned to ride in her infancy and soon began to express her passion for horses on canvas. Apart from her two year training at the Florentine drawing school of Signorini Nera Suni, Susan Crawlord is entirely self-taught. She has exhibited at a number of distinguished galleries throughout the world, including The National Portrait Gallery, The Royal Academy of Arts. The Tryon Gallery, London, and The National Gallery of Pahang Pinang, Malaysia. Amongst her many fine works, Susan Crawford has painted twenty-one Epsom Derby winners and great steeple-chasers including Red Rum, Arkle and Desert Orchid. However, despite her high profile as an equestrian artist, she is also well-established as a painter of portraits. Sue has painted five members of the British Royal family, including HM Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, HM The Queen and HRH The Prince of Wales, as well as HH The Sultan of Brunei and HM The Sultan of Oman.

Seeing this, Porus Cavalry charged, against Alexanders cavalry (in this period it was very unusual to have cavalry contact) The elephant charge began to falter and the battle edged towards victory for Alexander.
