Described by Janice Coyle as the best portrait of "Dessie" ever done... and she ought to know she was his stable lass...this stunning image of the David Elsworth trained steeplechaser is almost sold out.
Desert Orchid was more than a horse; he was an icon that embodied the Spirit of the Age in eighties Britain: Fearless, Bold, Flashy and full of heart; he symbolised the hopes of generation. Everybody remembers where they were when Desert orchid won the Cheltenham Gold Cup in a slog in the mud that saw him beaten by yahoo, only to dig deep and respond to the crowd willing him on; to victory up the hill.
"Desert Orchid was more than a horse; he was a God; a magical spirit; an icon of an age." (David Dent)
