The Jockey Club and its remarkable collection are part of racing's heritage. Assembled over three centuries, the collection contains some of the best racing art in existence including paintings by George Stubbs, J.F. Herring, and Sir Alfred Munnings among many works by lesser artists. Taken as a whole the contents of the Club's premises in Newmarket are enough to fascinate anyone with even a passing interest in sporting pictures or racing. This catalogue much extends the previous one privately published in 2006; in this new publication all works are illustrated and arranged alphabetically by artist with short biographies. There are some 50 additions of which the most important are a particularly fine painting by John Ferneley and a portrait of The Queen with her Ascot Gold Cup winner, Estimate. The accompanying text by David Oldrey, the pre-eminent authority on racing art, provides detailed information about the works themselves and about the horses, owners, trainers and jockeys depicted.
