Here’s another William Harnden Foster painting for your blog: Sport’s Peerless Pride, the 1939 National Champion. My old friend Earl Crangle, the legendary professional trainer, rode Pride’s brace that year (Earl was 19 at the time) and even helped scout for Pride’s handler, Dewey English. I remember Earl telling me “I saw every jump Sport’s Peerless Pride made at the 1939 National. He was a GREAT setter.”

He was sired by Sport’s Peerless, probably the greatest setter (and producer of setters) in the first half of the twentieth century.
