Queen's Plate week was officially launched today with the media barbeque at Woodbine. Eight horses and their connections came over to the walking ring for the event, of a possible field of 14. Included among them was the horse in today's painting, Keino West, and our Unstable prospect, Ziggy. I'll show you some of the others as the week goes on.
The painting is 8 x 10 oil on panel, done from a photo I took the day of the Plate Trial where Keino West finished fifth. Keino West is a gelded son of Kissin Kris.
