John Sanderson-Wells (1872-1955) was a British artists, specialising in equestrian subjects and portraits and this scene depicts the famous national Hunt horse race held annually at Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool, England. Valentine's Brook was named following an event in 1840 when a debut horse, "Valentine" is said to have cleared the jump with its hind legs first after losing his momentum. Valentine went on to finish third.
