Eclipse: A wonderful fine art collectible for any fan of thoroughbred horse racing!

Named after the solar eclipse of 1764 during which he was foaled, Eclipse (Marske x Spilletta) was undefeated as a racehorse and a phenomenal success as a sire! Eclipse won 18 races in effortless style, showing himself to be far superior to all competition. He sired over 344 winners including famous horses such as Annette, Saltram, Pot-8-os, Sergeant, Mercury, Dungannon, and Pegasus. Eclipse's bloodline was so successful that at least 85% of today's Thoroughbred horses trace back to him! The prestigious Eclipse Awards awarded every year to the top Thoroughbred racehorses in America are named in honor of this great horse.

Artist Heather Rohde's portrait of Eclipse features two views of the great horse: a regal head portrait and an action shot featuring Eclipse's distinctive low headed running style. The jockey is seated relatively upright as the modern "crouch" style of riding was not invented until over a century later! A popular saying of the day -- "Eclipse first and the rest nowhere" -- is on the border of the artwork under the horse's name. You can purchase Eclipse as a fine art reproduction either unframed or framed under glass in a beautiful brown wood designer frame with an antique white mat. Your Eclipse Thoroughbred horse art is hand signed and numbered by the artist and is of exceptional quality. A Certificate of Authenticity is included. A wonderful collectible for anyone who loves the history of Thoroughbred horse racing!
