The 16 hand bay beauty Foolish Pleasure had an impressive racing career of 26-16-4-3 with nine wins in major stakes. He was undefeated as a two-year-old and became the 1975 Kentucky Derby winner. He had career earnings of over $1.2 million and was U.S. Eclipse Champion Two-Year-Old. Unfortunately, Foolish Pleasure is most notably remembered as the rival who faced Ruffian in the "battle of the sexes" match race in which Ruffian tragically broke down and lost her life. The sad event has needlessly tarnished the memory of this talented racehorse, and his accomplishments as a competitor should not be forgotten. Foolish Pleasure was inducted into the National Racing Hall of Fame in 1995.

Artist Heather Rohde celebrates the achievements of this remarkable horse with this fine double portrait! Foolish Pleasure is captured in all his glory in both a head portrait and a full body racing view. Now available as signed and numbered limited edition fine art reproductions! The piece features a quote the reads: "A gifted, often overlooked champion, his amazing accomlishments make him worthy of being considered one of the classics" - A. Nesse". If you like how the art looks here, you will love how it looks in person! This fine artwork would make a great gift for any Thoroughbred racing fan!

Your Foolish Pleasure race horse art is available unframed or framed in a beautiful brown wood designer frame with an antique white mat. Ready to hang on your wall right out of the box! Your Foolish Pleasure art is of exceptional quality. A Certificate of Authenticity is included.
