Captain John Bastard, 'Horses', 1880, Artist : Spy
Pictured holding a long whip, Captain Bastard was a noted horse trainer and turf devotee; he also became famed for driving 4-in-hand carriages. A relatively small number of horse trainers were ever featured in Vanity Fair since they sometimes came from a lower rank in English Society than most turf devotees at the time and were not well known to the Public, unlike the Jockeys.
