  • This racehorse portrait was painted for one of Stubbs’s best early patrons, the young Whig aristocrat Frederick St. John, 2nd Viscount (“Bully”) Bolingbroke. Lord Bolingbroke, who inherited the title in 1751 from the childless half-brother of his father, owned some of the most successful racehorses of the day, including the famous Gimcrack. Turf raced mostly at Newmarket, and the high point of his career was beating King Herod in a match for a thousand guineas on 4 April 1766. He was retired lame the following year. The alert, if somewhat nonchalant, jockey wears Bolingbroke's colors, but his identity is unknown.
