1999 Travers Poster

"By a Nose"

This poster commemorates one of the greatest Travers finishes I ever saw — 1998. Three incredible horses came within 6" of winning it all. Coronado’s Quest won with Mike Smith aboard, but Victory Gallup and Raffie’s Majesty were just a heartbeat away. With about 20 lengths to go, the cheers were deafening, and they got louder. This finish was so close, there were three times as many people thinking — and yelling — that they had the winning ticket. It was wonderful fun. Then came the announcement of the winner from the officials at the finish line — and it was pandemonium all over again. I just loved it. Thoroughbred racing has always been a beautiful pageant, but it’s the “stand on anything to get a better look,” heart-racing, flat-out adrenalin rush of finishes like these that keep me coming back. - Greg Montgomery

17" x 33" Open Edition signed by artist Greg Montgomery. Posters come rolled.
