Iroquois Steeplechase By Joel Anderson, 2004
- Iroquois Steeplechase
Kentucky might take the national recognition in horse racing, but Nashville holds its own with the Iroquois Steeplechase. This race is held annually, a famous event that attracts more than 25,000 people from all around the world. And this isn’t just a horse race either. In fact, the Iroquois Steeplechase is also a charity event, with nonprofits and local charities like the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital and the Friends of Warner Parks receiving charitable funds from the race each year. Inspired by the race and its significance within the Nashville community, Anderson Design Group rendered a beautiful, colorful vintage poster of a jockey and his steed winning the race. An excellent home decor piece for fans of horse racing and for those who can appreciate Nashville's charitable events, this Spirit of Nashville artwork is available as a framed print, canvas banner, postcard, notecard, metal sign, or canvas.
