“First Light" — new poster for the Whitney Handicap
The 2014 racing season ended on a lovely note, we were asked by New York Racing Association (NYRA) to create a poster for The Whitney Handicap. It was an honor to be asked and a delight to design this poster about another aspect of classic thoroughbred racing at the Saratoga Race Track.
The result is “First Light,” paying homage to the Whitney family with this image of
exercise riders racing past the Whitney pavilion on the Oklahoma track in Horse Haven, in itself a reverent nod to days gone by.
There is a magic about Saratoga’s early mornings where so much preparation takes place. A remarkable silence and intimacy belies all the hard work there. A gauzy, ethereal look reveals runners with their riders emerging from the mist, their hooves muffled by the soft loam. There’s not another place like it.
