For the first time in the Watt Memorial Stake's history, a very special prize will be awarded to the winning horse's owners.
This season,we have teamed up with emerging racing artist Jackie Hardman, who will be painting a commission of the winning horse for its lucky owners. Jackie, who lives in Beverley near the racecourse, has been steadily winning admiration for her racing work in recent months and is delighted to be involved in the historic race, now in its 129th year. The race is named after Squire Watts from Bishop Burton who owned four St. Leger winners between 1813 and 1833, including the famous 'Altisidora'.
She will also be selling paintings from her stand at the racecourse on Tuesday 15th July's meeting. View more of Jackie's work here. Painting pictured: Two Wild Horses by Jackie Hardman.
