Description: 'Reality' in a Wooded Landscape Oil on canvas, 21" x 25"Signed and dated July 1833$40,000. - 50,000.Reality, by Sir Archy out of Old Medley, was owned by William Johnson, who often claimed that the mare was the equal to her great sire Sir Archy on the Turf. Indeed, Reality was one of the greatest turf mares of the 19th century. Reality also was successful as a broodmare, producing Johnson's Medley, Slender, and Bonnets o' Blue.There are several known paintings of Reality in a similar landscape, but they are all dated 1835. The present work is signed "E. Troye July 1833," and Troye would go on to paint Reality at least twice more, according to Alexander Mackay-Smith. Based upon the date of July 1833, the present painting was most likely painted for owner Johnson when Troye was completing a series of commissions (including Golliah and Trifle) all dating between June and August of that year.

For the first year off the track she was used as a park hack before being covered by Touchstone.

Description: Lazzarone, 1895 Oil on canvas en grisaille,14" x 18" Signed and dated 1895 Lots 36 and 37 were produced by Stull en grisaille for the reproduction of a lithograph, The First Twelve Winners of the Suburban Handicap, 1884-1895. Lazzarone was a beautifully bred racehorse, out of the champion Leamington mare Spinaway and by the champion Spendthrift, who was owned by Daniel Swigert and J.R. Keene and was namesake of the famous Spendthrift Farm. He was owned by Erie Stable's Robinson Beard and trained by "Billy" Donohue. Lazzarone won the Suburban Handicap in 1895, beating the famed Domino and Sir Walter, prompting inquiries by authorities. A New York Times article written in 1895 suggests that Lazzarone had not been true to form in his previous two starts but romped to a win in the Suburban Handicap at a price of 15-1. He had previously been ridden by famous African American jockey Isaac Murphy, but the mount was mysteriously given to Anthony Hamilton for the Suburban. The accusations reached a fever pitch when information was revealed that Donohue, a man who almost never bet, had put $600 to win on his horse and had done so through three separate wagers.

Princequillo retired with a dozen wins from 33 starts to the Hancock family's Ellerslie Stud in Virginia. With American champion Hill Prince and English champion Prince Rose in his second crop, he graduated to the family's first-tier stud barn at Claiborne Farm in Kentucky."Whatever else may be said of Nasrullah, it is clear that he is a colt of character. In appearance he is a rich bay of commanding proportions. His quarters are immensely powerful, and any good judge of a horse would put down this fine-looking colt as near perfect as possible if considering him apart from racecourse performance." - Bloodstock Breeders' Review 1942 Nasrullah's racing quirks may have kept him from his true potential on the turf, but nothing hampered his influence on American Thoroughbred breeding. Sold in 1950 to Claiborne Farm, he led the sire list five times with his progeny including Jaipur, Bold Ruler, Nashua and Nasram.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Reigh Count Oil on canvas, 38" x 48" Signed Legend has it that John D. Hertz had a group of pretty good horses that he gave to an up-and-coming young trainer, Bert Michell, to help further his career. One of those horses, Reigh Count, proceeded to win the Kentucky Derby and Jockey Club Gold Cup in America and then went to Europe and won the Coronation Cup at Epsom. Hertz was very pleased and commissioned Lynwood Palmer to do a painting of Reigh Count, the jockey Chick Lang, and the trainer Michell. A few months later Hertz was in England and called the popular young trainer to invite him to lunch to discuss the horse's condition and the upcoming Gold Cup at Royal Ascot. However, Michell replied that he "would like to but he was having tea that day with the Crown princess." Of course, Hertz attributed Michell's overnight stardom to the horses he had given him. Reigh Count came in second to Invershin in the Gold Cup, infuriating Hertz, who blamed the loss on Michell. He sent the painting back to Lynwood Palmer and had the trainer painted out.
