Mr W. Hall Walker, 'A lucky Owner', 1906, Artist: Spy

Colonel Hall Walker was a great British Sportsman in every sense. Beginning with a love of Foxhunting, he became a devotee of horse racing and was a prolific rider, sometimes of six mounts a day. He accumulated a tally of 125 wins, before the pressing demands of business led to him focussing on breeding polo ponies and creating provincial polo matches with his two brothers. He was also a famous shot, went in for yacht racing with his cutter the Carress, and then in 1896 did the double by winning the Grand National Steeplechase as an owner, and getting married in the same year!

All prints are 26 x 40 cm and supplied unframed and un-mounted. They are antique chromolithographs and come with a certificate of authenticity.
