The official poster for the 137th running of the Kentucky Derby. |
Chosen to represent the 2011 Kentucky Derby and Oaks posters, prints, tickets and program covers, Lesley Humphrey's creations embody the key elements significant to the "Greatest Two Minutes In Sports," the Kentucky Derby.
Her oil painting commemorating the Kentucky Derby winner, titled Victory, shows a dappled grey horse of majestic stature; the jubilant jockey is fierce in his winning expression. Wrapped in a blanket of brilliant red roses that appear to turn into the colorful crowd, Ms. Humphrey has captured the moments just after the race with magnificent colors and an energetic composition.
Poster measures 21.5" x 32".
