Provenance: From the estate of Vincent O'Brien
Bred by Lane?s End, Law Society was purchased for $2.7 million at the 1983 Keeneland Sales for Stavros Niarchos before being sent to trainer Vincent O?Brien at Ballydoyle. An Irish champion both years he raced, Law Society scored his greatest triumph in the 1985 Irish Derby. First standing at Coolmore Stud in Ireland and then at Gestut Isarland, he sired 55 stakes winners, spanning both Europe and North America. In the painting here, Law Society is pictured at Ballydoyle, the legendary training facility for Vincent O?Brien, perhaps the greatest trainer in horse racing history.Register
