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 the 1965 Kentucky Derby Winner, Kauai King signed by the artist.

KAUAI KING, dk. B. or br. c. by Native Dancer – Sweep In, by *Blenheim II.
Bred by Dr. Frank A. O’Keefe, Owned by Ford Stable, Trained by Henry Forrest.

Kauai King won the 1965 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, the first two jewels of the American “Triple Crown.” Although he failed to complete the classic sweep in the Belmont Stakes, he was syndicated shortly afterwards for a record valuation of $2,520,000.

The son of Native Dancer (whose only loss was in the 1953 Derby) out of the aged mare Sweep In (bought for $4,500 at the 1955 Keeneland Fall Sales) will stand, when he is retired from racing, at his sire’s home, Alfred G. Vanderbilt’s Sagamore Farm, Glyndon, Md., where Kauai King was foaled. However, the expensive colt named for a Hawaiian island was bred by Dr. Frank A. O’Keefe, owner of Pine Brook Farm, Warrenton, Va.

Kauai King was sold at the Saratoga Yearling Sales for $42,000 to Tom Gentry, agent for Michael J. Ford’s Ford Stable.

Trained by Lloyd Gentry as a two-year-old, the colt won one of four starts that season; showed in the Joliet Stakes; and earned $6,120. He was unplaced only in the Futurity Trial, in which he bucked his shins.

Gentry took another position during the winter, and Henry Forrest took over the Ford Stable training as Kauai King entered his classic season. Before the Triple Crown races, he won the Fountain of Youth and prince George’s Stakes, and Governor’s Gold Cup. Fourth money in the Belmont, only his second unplaced starting 11 efforts during the season, brought his earnings for the year to $395,277.

He was to continue racing under syndicate ownership through the rest of 1966 and the 1967 season.
