Steeplechasing derives its name from the practice of using church steeples in the countryside to mark the beginning and end of horse races. Jumping over hurdles also comes from the cross-country races that originated in Ireland and England in the 18th century, where riders and their horses would jump over fences and ditches.

Lonesome Glory Statue


Lonesome Glory was one of the most accomplished American steeplechasers in racing history. Born in 1988, Lonesome Glory dominated the steeplechase circuit in the 1990s, earning his owner, Kay Jeffords, over $1 million in race winnings. Retiring after the 1999 racing season, Lonesome Glory is now buried on the grounds of the National Steeplechase Museum.

I would like to do a painting from the Carolina Cup with intentions to submit it for the poster. I would like to use actual photo/photos from the race. Do you have photos I could work from? Thank you for any help you can provide. Mary Jane Fulciniti
