A Horse of a Different Color

Secretariat was born March 30, 1970. He became an American Thoroughbred racehorse who, in 1973, became the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years. His record-breaking victory in Belmont Stakes, which he won by 31 lengths, is widely regarded as one of the greatest races of all time.

I was thrilled and honored to have been chosen as the featured artist to showcase my work that captures the beauty and magnificence of Big Red in honor of his 50th birthday celebration. Secretariart was far from any ordinary racehorse. In the sporting world, he’s often mentioned in the same breath alongside some of the human all-time greats.

Lisa Palombo is a renowned Contemporary American Impressionist known for her expressive brushwork and fearless use of color. Her equine, polo and horseracing paintings are especially masterful, capturing the elegance, motion and thunder of these magnificent animals.

Lisa’s work has been featured on more than 40 book covers, including several New York Times bestsellers as well as showcased in House & Garden, Art & Antiques Magazine, Southern Living, The Artist’s Magazine, American Art Review and a Columbia Pictures movie, The Bounty Hunter. Her awe-inspiring artwork adorns the walls of private collectors and corporate collections worldwide.
