Paula had the idea to paint the Winners of the Blue Grass Stakes, while sitting on the verandah at Calumet Farm, during her visit to Lexington, Kentucky in 2010. She was participating in the Horse Mania project painting a life size model of a horse with her Jockey's design. Her horse was called Me & My Gal' . She discovered Keeneland racetrack was due to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Blue Grass Stakes which inspired her to develop a method of displaying the history of the race in a visual form. It took several years researching to establish the correct colours and then painting them.

THE ARRANGEMENT EXPLAINED:

- The white vertical lines represent the fences along the course.

-The round red spots at the top on either side of the canvas represent the finishing posts.

-The boxes along the bottom containing a year e.g. 1961, represent the stalls at the beginning of a race.

-The columns should be read from the bottom upwards, beginning with the year in the box at the base.
Starting at the bottom left 1937 moving upwards 38, 39,40,41, then drop down to the bottom of the next
row for 1942 and so forth.

This makes a total of 52 winners to date.
