Multiple stakes winner Fenelon
A Belair Stud home-bred, Fenelon was a son of imported French stallion Sir Gallahad III and French mare Filante. In 1940 and 1941, he won a list of impressive races, including the Jockey Club Gold Cup, Travers Stakes, Lawrence Realization, Saratoga Cup, Brooklyn Handicap, Manhattan Handicap, and Whitney Stakes
His greatest feat, however, was his victory in the 1941 New York Handicap, during which he set a new world record for 2 1/4 miles

  5. Gesattelter Brauner [“Saddled Bay Horse”]
In the 1840s, horse racing was by far the most popular spectator sport both in the United States and Europe, with major races attracting in excess of 60,000 spectators.
This 1848 painting by William Barrand is of an unknown horse, but is representative of the typical build of a thoroughbred of the day. Their lean build was not yet as greyhound-esque as today’s racehorses, but was still muscular, impressive, and built for speed. The Barb and Arabian influence in the breed are both clearly evident in this beautiful painting of a horse whose name has been lost to time.

  I would date her clothing to the very late 1790s or up until about 1803.  It’s a beautiful image!
