My bronze sculpture Requiem for a Highweight shown above was created in 1982. The sculpture was based on a three way-photo finish in the Grade One 1976 Suburban Handicap. The race was won by Kentucky Derby winner Foolish Pleasure, with Forego the Champion Handicap Horse carrying the highest weight finishing second and Lord Rebeau, the horse carrying the lightest weight in the field, finishing thrrd. The sculpture is on permanent display at Aqueduct Racetrack in New York.
