The image captures the poise of the winner against the backdrop of the Racecourse and the Sussex Downs.

Using a variety of retouching skills, Ripley has created an image that, at first glance, resembles an oil painting. It only becomes evident on closer inspection the picture is actually a composite of several photographs.

Ripley has photographed celebrities including David Beckham, David Bowie, Coldplay and Lewis Hamilton. A lifelong animal lover, he started picturing horses three years ago.
