Doing justice to a star
When you've got a close association with a super racehorse like Jennifer Eccles, it's a struggle to know what photo to put on the wall.
I've thought about it long and hard off the back of her outstanding three-year-old season which netted a Group One (Oaks) and three Group Twos (Ellis, Lowland & Eight Carat) and finally found a unique solution.
Former TAB Media Manager Mark Stafford has a fantastic artistic skill and I had noticed his work when scrolling through Twitter (as I do each day).
So I approached him this week to commission a piece, using a great shot taken by Peter Rubery (Race Images) of Jennifer Eccles & Jason Waddell post their Al Basti Equiworld Dubai New Zealand Oaks success at Trentham Gardens, 14 March.
Love your work Mark & can't wait to put this on my wall in the coming week!
