Artist's Description

This is at Parkes Jockey Club in the Central West of New South Wales, Australia in Spring 1996.

This liver chestnut horse about to go out on to the track was our first thoroughbred purchase. Liberated Lady, a 3 year old chestnut filly (by Victory Prince out of Freedom Flower), was having her first (and our) very first race.

How did she go? Well, as they past the finishing post we were cheering as it seemed she had won by a head. Ten minutes later we were worried because there was no result announced to the photo finish – maybe a dead heat? Another 5 minutes later we were disappointed – she had been beaten by a nose!

Fortunately, Liberated Lady won her next two races at Cowra and Sydney and went on to win six races in her career.
