This fine art print of Newmarket Heath depicts a pair of thoroughbreds working on the Summer Canter in the early morning sun. The dramatic sunlight highlights every muscle detail on these majestic animals, as they pass near to the grandstand on the Rowley Mile course.
The rising sun washes orange light over the Millenium Grandstand. As the world wakes we can see that the gallops are already a hive of activity, as we are given a glimpse into the hard work and preparation that lies behind every race and every champion.
“Early morning summer light gives a unique warmth and tone to a horse’s coat. This is something that I found a real pleasure to paint in ‘Dawn Raid’ as I feel that it reveals the thoroughbred in his full majesty. By positioning the two horses so that they have just passed the viewer, I have been able to show their faces in what I believe to be a particularly noble and graceful profile, adding to their overall majesty”.
