Superb French Animalier Bronze Sculpture of a Standing Racehorse by Pierre Lenordez (1814-1892), signed to base, cast by Duplan et Salles, with engraved inscription in the form of un unfurled blanket reads “St Albans, winner of the St Leger Doncaster/Chester Cups, by Stockwell out of Bribery by The Libel.”
St Albans was owned by the Marquess Ailesbury, ridden by Luke Snowden, trained by John Scott, won both of these races in 1860.
