I've never been a big fan of Derbies or the horse racing business as they call it for the straight fact that young horses are raced too early all for the love of money and then retired or put down when their bones break from overstress. I feel that Barbaro is a perfect example of this. Most horse owners know that a horse's bones do not mature fully until 8 years of age...and most race horses are retired or put down before they reach that age because of injuries to their still maturing bodies. Greed and Money is the root of the horse racing 'buisness' as men call it.
This is the first time EVER that I have drawn race horses, or even burned horses or people. The art is One-of-A-Kind and is not currently for sale, although I may soon find a place other than this blog to advertise it.
And here's one of my favorite horse racing videos: the World's funniest, stupidest, and yet the best, horse race announcer. We're all getting there...getting there fast, and some of us, not getting there quite as fast.
