Brown Beauty was not only a subject of artist Henry Stull, she was his own racehorse. On a beautiful August day in 1892 at Saratoga, Stull entered his filly in the Iroquois Stakes for 3-year-olds going a mile and a sixteenth. Brown Beauty won by a length over a field of colts, including C. F. Fleischman's Ronald, winner of Saratoga's Kenner Stakes.
