Mid 19th Century Oil on Canvas Painting

  • H: 58 cm (22 13/16")
  • W: 73 cm (28 3/4")
  • D: 5 cm (2")

Wonderful 19th Century oil on canvas painting. 

By the follower of Benjamin Marshall, a 19th Century Oil on Canvas of ‘Sam with jockey Sam Chifney up and trainer R Perrin’ the original of 1818 is in the Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens in America

This painting was acquired from an Old Rectory.

Sam Chifney was a British thoroughbred racehorse and sire. In a career that lasted from April 1818 to May 1819, he ran nine times and won three races. In May 1818 he defeated fifteen opponents to record his most important win in The Epsom Derby. He had training problems before the Derby, jeopardising the £15,000 which Thornhill stood to take in winning bets.

Despite his lack of a win in a competitive race, he started 7/2 second favourite on 28 May at Epsom, with Prince Paul being made 11/5 favourite. There were ten false starts for the race before the starter announced that the next attempt would be the final one, regardless of whether or not the sixteen jockeys were ready.

A lovely painting that would suit both classic and contemporary interiors!
