Unfettered by the structure surrounding him and driven by a singular purpose, a muscular thoroughbred thunders through a gothic interior scene reminiscent of the chapels and libraries of Oxford. His legacy is secure but his reality appears fluid as clouds in the ceiling change into dripping parasols and the carpet beneath his hoofs begins to float and transform into a galaxy of patterns. Surrounded by the trophies of past victories and with pride and admiration, family members watch intently as their courser rushes towards another victory and yet another race.
