Suave Dancer


Commissioned by Cash Asmussen and John Hammond

I saw Suave Dancer in France, watching him train on the gallops in Chantilly, and in his yard. This particular pose shows him galloping down to the start before his 1991 victory in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. I like the contrast of the quiet hands of Cash Asmussen lightly restraining the anxious, pre-race energy of the horse.
