Winston Churchill’s racehorse wins (hearts) again
Political races weren’t the only kind that Sir Winston Churchill thrived on. He also loved to race horses. His handsome Colonist II is immortalized (and miniaturized) in this bookend, impeccably detailed by the British sculptor Jon Bickley. Colonist’s reins are leather and behind him, on a piece of fencing, hangs the hat that Sir Winston is wearing in the photo we’ve reproduced. The quote is classic Churchill.
