Description

Peb's artwork depicts jockey Chris Antley sketching a caricature of the artist.

Chris Antley (1966-2000) began riding professionally in 1983. By 1985, he was North America’s leading jockey by wins. Antley won his first Kentucky Derby in 1991 riding Strike the Gold, and he took both the Preakness Stakes and Derby in 1999 aboard Charismatic.

Antley and Charismatic finished third in the 1999 Belmont Stakes after Charismatic suffered a leg injury during the stretch run. Antley held the colt’s fractured leg at the finish line until help arrived.

Antley was inducted in the National Museum of Racing’s Hall of Fame in 2015 with 3,480 career wins and earnings exceeding $92 million.
