        Henry Stull (Canadian/American, 1851-1913)

        Est: $10,000 - $20,000

        Henry Stull (Canadian/American, 1851-1913) Equine Portrait of American Thoroughbred Champion Eole oil on canvas laid to board signed Henry Stull and dated 1882, lower left 20 x 30 inches. The tumultuous racing career of long-distance racehorse Eole was marked by both triumph and tragedy in equal measure. Bred in Albemarle County, Virginia by owner Richard J. Hancock in 1878, Eole was purchased in 1880 by wealthy New York lothario and sportsman Frederick "Freddy" Gebhard (1860-1910) and raced for the first time at age three. By the following year, Eole had begun to distinguish himself as one of the top distance runners in the country, and between the ages of four and six, he won the Champion Stakes, Great Metropolitan Stakes, Monmouth Cup, Autumn Cup, and Freehold Stakes, and placed second in England's prestigious Ascot Gold Cup. Conversely, Gebhard's ownership of Eole was mired in controversy that remained unresolved through the summer of 1884. Fellow turfman Arthur M. Hunter maintained that he had purchased Eole first and agreed to sell him to Gebhard, who had failed to pay the stipulated price in full and then denied Hunter's subsequent financial interests in the horse. Hunter threatened to bring suit against Gebhard, but the two men agreed to arbitration, the result of which was that Hunter's claims were unsubstantiated. Now clearly in the possession of Gebhard, Eole continued to race through 1887, notably winning the Kearney Stakes at Saratoga Race Course of that year. Eole retired in 1888 and was being shipped aboard an Erie Railroad express train from New York City to Chicago for stud duty when the train abruptly derailed in Shohola, Pennsylvania. The railcar carrying Eole and fourteen other horses owned by Gebhard rolled down a steep embankment and burst into flames. All but one horse, Eole's brother St. Savior, perished in the fire.

        Henry Stull - LITHOS & BLUE AWAY IN THE RACING COLORS OF TROWBRIDGE & CO

        Est: $15,000 - $20,000

        Oil on canvas Signed, dated 1897. Provenance: Maxwell Galleries, California Henry Stull Lithos and Blue Away, Winners of the 1896 and 1897 Manhasset Stakes at Gravesend, in the Colors of Trowbridge & Co. In 1896 Samuel Trowbridge's talented 2-year-old Lithos won the Surf Stakes, Manhasset Stakes, and Expectation Stakes. The Journal related the story of Trowbridge's Manhasset Stakes win: While the horses were at the post for the Expectation Stakes, Samuel Trowbridge, one of the owners of Lithos, was over in the infield. He found a four-leaved clover which he transferred to his buttonhole, and remarked to his trainer, "That's a lucky omen. We will win sure." "At that," said Mr. Trowbridge, "I did not think we had won from where I stood, and was not certain of it until I walked over to the track and saw the numbers up." Mr. Trowbridge paid $5,000 to the Messrs. Morris for Lithos on Wednesday, and nearly won him out, as the guaranteed value to the winner of the Expectation was $4,000. The following year, Trowbridge was lucky to find himself in possession of another talented 2-year-old in Blue Away, who won the Champagne Handicap, the Zephyr at Sheepshead Bay, the Fairview Handicap, and the Manhasset Stakes at Gravesend. Trowbridge, having won the prestigious Manhanset Stakes twice in a row, decided to commemorate the accomplishment by commissioning Henry Stull to paint his two spectacular horses.

        Nov. 18, 2022

        Henry Stull - Glenelg

        Est: $9,000 - $12,000

        Henry Stull Glenelg $9,000 - $12,000 By Citadel and out of Babta (by Kingston), Glenelg was put up for sale as a yearling in 1867 when August Belmont sent Jacob Pincus specifically to buy the ?big bay yearling out of the Kingston mare.? He never ran at the age of two, being described as ?big and raw,? and made his three-year-old debut running second in the 1869 Belmont Stakes to his fellow Belmont owned colt, Fenian, a race in which he was held back so Fenian could take the win. Glenelg would finish the year winning three and placing twice in his five starts with the victories including the Travers and Jerome Stakes. At the age of four he racked up several more stakes wins, notable the Maturity, Breakfast, Bowie, and Excelsior Stakes, before retiring at the age of five with a 10-4-3 record in 18 starts. \n \nGlenelg had a rocky, but very successful, stud career. Originally standing at Belmont?s Nursery Stud, he was overshadowed when Belmont purchased the great stallion Kentucky. Sold to Milton Sanford?s Preakness Stud in Lexington, Glenelg became a success with Monitor, Idalia, Wade Hampton, and Carley B. all coming from his matches with mares by Lexington. Daniel Swigert purchased Preakness from Sanford in 1881 and renamed it Elmendorf and it was under Swigert when Glenelg flourished more. He was the leading sure in North America for four years, the first to dominate in that fashion since Lexington. His filly Firenzi was his best, she retired as the second highest earning filly in American history at that time, and it was through his daughters that Glenelg?s line is still active today. John?s Joy, Dancer?s Image, and Stymie are just some descendants who ran in the 20th century.

        Henry Stull Snapper Garrison Up $5,000 - $7,000 Edward "Snapper" Garrison was a 19th-century American jockey known for his spectacular come-from-behind wins. During his 16-year riding career, he won nearly 700 races. Garrison rode many great horses, including Montana, Tammany and Firenze and was known for coming off the pace. In fact, his riding style had so captured the attention of the public that people had begun using the term "Garrison finish" for any victory in which the winner comes from behind. The term was so often used that it appears in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. Edward Snapper Garrison was inducted into the National Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame in 1955, the first year of inductions.

Brown Bred in Kentucky by A. J. Alexander at his famous Woodburn Stud, Troubadour was sired by Lisbon, a son of the imported British stallion Phaeton. His dam was Glenluine, a daughter of the mighty Glenelg. Troubadour was sold as a yearling to Daniel Swigert, owner of the famed Elmendorf Farm at the time, who raced him once at age 2 and then sold the winner for a whopping $7,500 to Col. Milton Young of McGrathiana Stud. On May 17, 1884, Troubadour ran second in the Alexander Stakes at the Louisville Jockey Club. A week later he went unplaced in the Tennessee Stakes but bounced back and won the June 6 Sensation Stakes at Latonia and the Criterion Stakes in Chicago. After running third in the Kenwood Stakes on July 1, he shipped to Saratoga, where placed in a 2-year-old race and then won again just five days later. Troubadour returned to Kentucky in September, scoring wins at the Louisville Jockey Club and capturing the Kimball and Barrett Stakes at Latonia. Troubadour won five times in 1885, including the St. Leger Stakes in St. Louis by 20 lengths. In December 1885 Milton Young sold off his entire stable, and Troubadour ultimately ended up in the hands of Capt. Samuel S. Brown, owner of Senorita Stud Farm near Lexington, Kentucky. Brown sent Troubadour to future Hall of Fame trainer John W. Rogers in 1886 and on June 1, Troubadour won a race at Latonia and was immediately shipped to Brooklyn. Nine days later he won the most prestigious and valuable race of the day, the Suburban Handicap at Sheepshead Bay, and then beat the great Miss Woodford. Troubadour was retroactively given the title of the 1886 American champion older male. After recovering from an injury, Troubadour returned to the track in 1887 and ran second to The Bard, one of the great cracks of the day. However, he regained the upper hand in short order, beating The Bard in the July 4 Ocean Stakes and again in the Monmouth Cup 10 days later. In August, Troubadour suffered a career-ending injury in the Freehold Stakes and was retired to stud at Brown’s Senorita Stud, where the champion sired 1893 Kentucky Derby winner Lookout.

      • Henry Stull - Strathspey
        Nov. 21, 2021

        Henry Stull - Strathspey

        Est: $8,000 - $10,000

        Henry Stull - American, 1851-1913 Strathspey Oil on canvas 18" x 28" Signed, dated 1884 Strathspey was foaled in 1878, a son of the great sire Glenelg. His grandsire was none other than the greatest American sire of the 19th century, the mighty Lexington. In 1880, Strathspey raced eight times, and while he hit the board on six of those occasions, he managed only one win. However, in 1881, Strathspey raced 20 times and boasted an impressive record of 6-6-5. Strathspey was bred by Milton Sanford at the once-renowned Preakness Stud in Lexington, Kentucky—which was subsequently purchased by Daniel Swigert and renamed Elmendorf, parts of which are still intact. Strathspey was purchased by notable turf enthusiast Daniel Dunham Withers, the namesake of the long-standing Withers Stakes, which has been in existence since 1874 and is still run to this day. And while the Withers Stakes is certainly a prestigious race, Sanford has the honor of having one of the jewels of American racing, the Preakness Stakes, named after his famous farm. Strathspey’s jockey, William Donohue, won all three of the modern-day Triple Crown races, winning the 1876 Belmont Stakes, the 1883 Kentucky Derby, and the 1874 and 1887 Preakness Stakes. Donohue rode some of the greatest horses of his time, ultimately earning enough money to buy some of the horses that he used to ride for others. He ultimately would purchase, train, and ride Strathspey to victory in his own colors. Donohue apparently thought so much of Strathspey that he commissioned Henry Stull, the greatest horse painter of the day, to immortalize the colt with his owner and trainer Perched on Strathspey’s back is his jockey, proudly sporting Donohue’s red and black silks.

        Henry Stull - American, 1851-1913 The Inaugural Running of the Connaught Cup, 1912, Old Woodbine Oil on canvas 24" x 29" Signed, dated 1912 The Connaught Cup was first run in 1912 on the dirt at Toronto’s old Woodbine Race Course. The 1912 running of the King’s Plate marked the first time that members of the Royal Family attended the running of the “fifty guineas,” the original prize bequeathed by the family for the prominent Canadian horse race. Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Connaught and Princess Patricia watched as Plate Glass captured the inaugural running of the prestigious race that has borne their familial name for more than a century. The day was described in the Quebec Chronicle: “Bright sunshine and a summer temperature lured a big crowd to the Woodbine track today for the fifth day of the Ontario Jockey Club’s spring meeting. The track, which yesterday was deep in mud, was transformed to a dry and at times dusty expanse. The Duke of Connaught was present to witness the first race for the Connaught Cup, the challenge trophy donated by himself and the Duchess of Connaught for Canadian-owned Thoroughbreds. The race was captured by Robert Davies with Plate Glass, the horse which he bought especially with a view to winning this and other coveted events. Plate Glass carried top weight, 132 pounds, but easily disposed of the other four starters. Rockville ran second and Bwana Tumbo third.” Plate Glass won the title of American champion older male horse in 1911 and was purchased in the spring of 1912 by Robert Davies for the staggering sum of $5,000. Davies did not have to wait long for his investment in the champion to pay off: Plate Glass won the Connaught Cup, the Rothschild Cup, and the Windsor Hotel Cup in his 6-year-old season. Plate Glass repeated his great victory in 1913, winning the Connaught Cup in back-to-back appearances, a feat just five other horses have accomplished in the race’s long and rich history.

        HENRY STULL - SAVABLE, WINNER OF THE FUTURITY AND LORD OF THE VALE, SECOND

        Est: $25,000 - $35,000

        Henry Stull American, 1851-1913 Savable, Winner of the Futurity and Lord of the Vale, Second Oil on canvas Signed, dated 1902 Provenance: E. Franklin Robbins; Sotheby's, New York, Jone 7, 1991, Lot 166 On August 30, 1902, 50,000 racegoers gathered at Sheepshead Bay to watch with breathless interest as the greatest number that had ever struggled for the laurel wreath faced the start. The prize was rich, and the quality of the field incomparable. Before the flag it appeared as though any of the 32 horses entered had an even chance at victory. John A. Drake and his western contingency were confident that Savable, sired by Salvator, would capture the purse. By noon, a crowd such that Sheepshead Bay had never seen filled the lower tier of the three-deck grandstand. Long before the call to post, all tiers were filled with a mass of moving color — wealthy onlookers in the rare and radiant colors of the season. Twenty thousand surged in the field; beyond the track were countless more. By post time seven horses had scratched. The start saw Lord of the Vale, a Belmont colt, the first to break, with Savable, Hurstbourne, and Dazzling falling in at his heels. Fire Eater was left at the post. Flying down the hill, 23 stretched out across the track in what appeared to be an almost straight line. Spectators observed with bated breath as the racers straightened out — suspense palpable in the air as a single misstep could bring a fateful catastrophe. Dazzling broke the ranks to extend first into the stretch. Patrick McCue touched Lord of the Vale with the whip, and he gallantly responded by taking the lead. After a moment’s falter the son of Hastings recovered, the goal was in sight, and McCue prepared to usher him through. Savable, all but forgotten by the crowd, seemed just a glimpse of turquoise in the back. Lucien Lyne answered the challenge using the tip of the spur and the crack of the whip to fully extend his mount. Savable answered and broke from the bunch at a thundering speed. Lyne continued to lift him inch by inch, and in the last sixteenth he wore down the single length separating himself and victory. McCue used all his tact to fend off defeat, but Savable — with his sire’s indomitable courage, speed, and heart — surpassed the pride of the Belmont stable as they flew under the wire. August Belmont, watching from the roof stand, never flinched but acknowledged “with another week’s work, Lord of the Vale would have won.” The Futurity saw $45,400 to the winner, $5,250 to the second, and $2,750 to the third. J.B. Haggin, breeder of Savable, captured $2,000 while August Belmont took $1,250. The last $500 went to James R. Keene, breeder of Dazzling, for total prize money of $57,150. Drake is credited with having won the largest bet ever made in the country: His winnings amounting to more than $100,000.

Provenance: Lot 75, Sotheby’s, New York, October 28, 2004. The Collection of Mr. and Mrs. Walter M. Jeffords. Note that this work appeared on the cover of the catalogue for the 2004 Sotheby’s sale of The Collection of Mr. and Mrs. Walter M. Jeffords: Sporting Paintings, Sculpture and Trophies, Vol. I, perhaps the most important sale of sporting art from one private collection. Foaled in 1891 at Major Barak G. Thomas’ Dixiana Farm, Domino was sired by Himyar, out of Mannie Gray. Falling on financial difficulties, Thomas sold his prized yearling to James R. Keene and his son, Foxhall Keene, and the horse went to race for their Castleton Farm. The fastest sprinter of his time and known as “The Black Whirlwind,” Domino won all nine starts as a 2-year-old and six of eight starts at the age of 3. As famed turf writer W. S. Vosburgh notes on page 163 of Racing in America: 1866–1921, “No horse in recent times made so powerful an impression in the great sweepstakes for two and three year olds. As a racehorse he had won nineteen out of twenty-five races and had won more money than any American racer.” Even after such a successful racing career, it was at stud where Domino made his most lasting mark. As Vosburgh says on the same page “As a sire Domino’s career, while brief, was immediate and immense… He founded a line that in the colt and filly stakes has practically dominated racing.” Of his two seasons at stud, producing 20 foals, eight were stakes winner, including Commando and Cap and Bells, the first American-bred to win the Epsom Oaks. His descendants have dominated the modern era, with 10 of the 13 winners of the Triple Crown having Domino in their pedigree, including War Admiral, Secretariat, Seattle Slew, Affirmed, Bold Ruler, Assault, Whirlaway, Gallant Fox, Omaha, Native Dancer, American Pharoah, Justify, Blue Larkspur, Equipoise, Personal Ensign, Buckpasser, and Zenyatta. In Speed and the Thoroughbred, Alexander MacKay-Smith says the sprinting lines of the modern Thoroughbred come from six sires, Domino being one of the two American horses. His line can also be found in many jumpers today.

Provenance: Coney Island Jockey Club Exhibited: Kentucky Governor’s Mansion, Frankfort, KY, The Race Continues, May–October 2012 Headley Whitney Museum, Lexington, KY, April–June 2013 When William Scott purchased French-bred champion Rayon d’Or as a stallion prospect in 1882, the $40,000 price tag seemed exorbitant. By the end of the decade, Rayon d’Or had sired three of the most notable racers of the 1880s in Banquet, Tenny, and Chaos. Scott’s Algeria Stock Farm recouped the entire $40,000 investment made in Rayon d’Or when Chaos took the Futurity Stakes of 1889. The Futurity Stakes’ inaugural running in 1888 was the richest race ever run on American soil, boasting a purse of $40,900. The $54,500 purse offered for the second running of the Futurity Stakes was won by Chaos and singlehandedly covered Rayon d’Or’s purchase price. William Lawrence Scott was a United States congressman who also sat on the board of the Coney Island Jockey Club.
