This piece, executed by the artist in 1849, is believed to be a portrait of Mr. B. Green?s Flatcatcher, with trainer Henry Stebbing. Green?s winner, a Touchstone colt, was a formidable opponent on the track, taking the 2000 Guineas, the Dee Stakes at Chester, and the St. Leger Stakes at Liverpool as a 3-year-old. After he returned the following year to win the Port Stakes, Newmarket, and the Queen?s Plates at Chester and Shrewsbury, a portrait of the racer and his trainer was presumably commissioned to commemorate his achievements on the turf.Register
