Description

On the heels of American Pharoah's Triple Crown win at the Belmont, we're pleased to present this lush chromolithographic scene of the thoroughbreds Potomac and Masher owned by the racetrack's namesake August Belmont. The equine pair was rendered by artist Chas. L. Zellinsky and printed by esteemed firm Currier & Ives with the caption describing, "The Celebrated Horses Which Ran First and Second for the Great Futurity Stakes at Sheepshead Bay, NY Aug 30th 1890 Value $77,700, Won by Potomac." The beautiful, boldly hued image area is essentially Near Mint while the overall 29-1/2 x 23-1/2" visible dimensions are apparent EX/EX-MT. Handsomely framed to measure 33-1/2 x 27-1/2".
