Jay Kirkman's use of oil paints and pastels create this wonderful, evocative piece of art. The strong and vibrant colours of the silks provide a dramatic contrast to the horses and the background and the artist's close study of light and shadow serves particularly to emphasize the shimmering brilliance of the jockeys' apparel.

You have a clear sense of anticipation by professionals who appear relaxed, in order to keep the horses as calm as possible before the race.
