Art & the OTTB: The Heart of the Thoroughbred Through the Eyes of the Artist

New for 2021, the Real Rider Cup presents “The Heart of the Thoroughbred Through the Eyes of the Artist.”  We have been overwhelmed by the responses of the incredibly gifted men and women who have donated original, unique pieces to be auctioned online to benefit our Thoroughbred aftercare charities.

In support of that effort, we are offering for sale beautiful, one-of-a-kind calendars showcasing these extraordinary works of art. As portrayed by sixteen international artists, Thoroughbreds – including some very familiar names – are depicted in their second careers and retirements. The calendars are mounted on reclaimed barnwood easels/stands generously created and donated by Furniture From The Barn.
