My next stop was the famous Churchill Downs. My batteries ran out at this point and I had to make a run around the corner to a Family Dollar for more, but I returned to shoot some shots of the relatively new statue of the ill-fated Barbaro, whose statue stands outside the entrance.




















My final stop was the State Fairgrounds. Outside of Freedom Hall stands a statue of one of the great horsemen of all time; rider of over 200 ASB World Champions.................................Tom Moore. I took the liberty to enhance and add some "effects" to these photos, as you can see.

Great work, Smitty!!! When we visited Churchill Downs, they were awaiting the remains of Barbaro to be buried under the statue so that the statue could be completed. The owners were out of the country at that time. Do you know if the remains are, indeed, buried there now? What we saw was the base, which looked much like a coffin. I wonder what I did with my pictures of that.

Graymare,

From what I understand; Barbaro was cremated and his remains are indeed buried beneath the statue.
Here's more info:

Here's a statue of a horse head sent in by Sensation61. I believe she said this was in Santa Fe, New Mexico. You can get an idea of how large this is if you notice the chair in front of the horse's nose.



I found some more photos of this statue elsewhere on the net:

The Art of Wesley Dennis

As a child I read many of the books by Marguerite Henry, including Misty of Chincoteague and my favorite, Brighty of the Grand Canyon. This was probably my first experience with quality horse art, as the books were brilliantly illustrated. Later on, I began to try to copy some of the works of Dennis in art class. I remember trying to emulate the detail in the polo pony shown below. Dennis became my early favorite artist and his awareness of horse anatomy is most evident in his work.
