The Preakness Stakes Triple Crown Horse Race Painting




The Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing consists of three races for three-year-old Thoroughbred horses. Winning all three of these Thoroughbred horse races is considered the greatest accomplishment of a Thoroughbred racehorse. In the United States, the three races that compose the Triple Crown are: the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes. In Canada, the triple crown is composed of the Queen's Plate, Prince of Wales Stakes and Breeders' Stakes.

This oil painting is my rendition of California Chrome and Ride On Curlin in a neck-in-neck race to the finish in the Preakness Stakes in 2014. I composed this painting based on the suspended action capture of a horse race photo taken by photographer, Anthony Morretta, (with his permission) and numerous sources of photographic references of the Preakness Stakes race for colors, etc. The wild strokes of oil paint trailing behind these magnificent powerful horses, the flying dirt, blurred colors and cloud of dust that obscures the background in an impressionistic style all serve to make this an energetic painting. The impression of action in the painting not only comes from the horse racing scene itself but from my instinctive wild action painting style which subconciously contributes to the excitement and flow and movement of the painting.


THE PREAKNESS STAKES is a horse racing action painting of California Chrome and Ride On Curlin in a neck-in-neck race to the finish at Preakness in 2014 by artist Hanne Lore Koehler.
