Add this rare fine art collectible of Black Gold to your home today!

Black Gold's mother, U-See-It, was lightning-fast and almost never beat at small western racetracks near her rural Oklahoma home. Her owner, Al Hoots, became very sick and as his last wish he asked his Osage Native American wife to breed U-See-It to Black Toney, one of the top sires in America. He insisted that he had foreseen in a dream that the resulting foal would win the Kentucky Derby. The stud fee was far beyond what Rosa Hoots could afford. But in a twist of fate, oil was discovered in Oklahoma and Mrs. Hoots' newfound wealth allowed her to fulfill her late husband's request.

Named Black Gold for the oil that had paid the stud fee, the son of U-See-It and Black Toney did indeed go to post in the 1924 Kentucky Derby...and won! What's more, he did so in the fiftieth running, or golden anniversary, of the famous race! Black Gold became the first horse to win four different state derbies plus 14 other races as well.

Artist Heather Rohde's true-to-life fine art portrait of Black Gold celebrates not only the horse himself but the excellence that he represents. A quote on the border of the piece reads: "He had the heart, spirit, and soul of a champion." You can purchase Black Gold either unframed or framed under glass in a brown wood designer frame with an antique white mat. Your Black Gold Thoroughbred horse racing art is hand signed and numbered by the artist and is of exceptional quality. A Certificate of Authenticity is included. You are buying direct from the artist!
