Set against the backdrop of the Prince’s Stand at Epsom Downs Racecourse, ‘Coronation Cup’ depicts runners and riders going to post in this Group 1 race, held on the first day of the Derby Festival each year.
The event was established in 1902 to commemorate the coronation of a new British monarch, King Edward VII. So it is fitting that the same race has been chosen as the subject for a painting to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of his great granddaughter, Queen Elizabeth II.
The lead horse going to post is Yeats, a winner of the Coronation Cup, ridden by Kieren Fallon. The second horse is Alkaased who was runner up in the same race. Alkaased went on to win the Japan Cup in a course record time, later that same year.
Brett is delighted to have teamed up with the charity Racing Welfare for this project. Twenty percent of the sale price from every print will be donated directly to Racing Welfare, to assist with the vital help that they offer, supporting the workforce of British horseracing
