Pictured with Mares & Foals at Cheveley Park Stud, Newmarket.
Pivotal was photographed on the 27th of October 2017 (24yo). The composite picture of Cheveley Park Stud was taken during the first week of June 2018.
Whilst mares & foals wouldn’t normally be in the same paddock as a Stallion, they were added so that the picture presented a story of his life at Cheveley by portraying 'Pivotal', a representation of his progeny and the stud farm.
The picture is allocated in an edition of three. The 1/1 was presented by Ripley to Palace House, The 2/3 was presented to Cheveley Park Stud.
"We are delighted when high calibre artworks are added to our national horseracing collection. Thanks to everyone involved for enabling us to share this beautiful work featuring the celebrated Pivotal".
- Dr Patricia Hardy, Packard Head of Collections, Exhibitions and Displays - the National Heritage Centre for Horseracing & Sporting Art (2018).
"The beautifully balanced and exquisite detailed print is certainly something to behold and we couldn't be happier to have it in our gallery".
