Description

Allen Brewer - who was recognized as one of the foremost equine artists of his time – had his life tragically brought to an end in a plane crash September 21, 1967. Among his commissions were such stellar equine stars as Man o’ War, Nashua, Carry Back and Kauai King to name just a few. Although most of the original paintings are currently privately owned - occasionally - lithographs become available for sale. The production of these prints ceased shortly after Allen’s death - making those still available quite rare.

This print has been in storage since 1967 and has slight discolorations around the print border which does not distract from the beauty of the print and would be easily covered up when matted and framed.

Offered for auction from the Brewer estate, is this rare print of OLD PUEBLO

OLD PUEBLO, ch. c., 1955,
by “Windy City II – Shadows Start, by Ariel.
Bred by Peter McBean at McBean Stud, Saugus, Cal.; Raced by J. Runkin Jelks until June, 19957, thereafter by Mr. Jelks and Atholl McBean; Trained by R. L. Wheeler.

The only unbeaten male juvenile of stature in 1957, Old Pueblo ranked as the undisputed champion of the season’s California two-year-olds after five straight victories, even though in one case he benefited from a disqualification to keep his slate free from loss.

J. Runkin Jelks, the Arizona Quarter-Horse specialist whose only previous Thoroughbred had been the brilliant filly Miss Todd, paid Peter McBean $11,500 for Old Pueblo as a yearling at the Del Mar Sales. He won his first three starts “pulled double” and eased up by margins of eight, 6 ½ and six lengths respectively. His sensational times were :33 for 3 furlongs at Santa Anita Park, and :57 3-5 and :57 flat for 5 panels at Hollywood Park. The Cabrillo Stakes was the third in this series of triumphs.

Soon after that event, Mr. Jelks sold a half-interest in the colt privately for a reported $65,000 to Peter McBean’s father, Altholl McBean. In the Starlet Stakes, Old Pueblo’s next appearance, he finished a fast-closing second to Strong Ruler; but the latter was disqualifies for having interfered with the also previously undefeated Fleet Nasrullah. With the partnership colt’s string of successes thus preserved, he brought his earnings up to $105,270 with a 1 ½ length score in the Del Mar Futurity, won in an astonishing 1:09 for 6 furlongs. He was then retired for the season, as the best two-year-old
