Estimate's story


Estimate was chosen for our Trail to illustrate our work relating to horses in sport.

Estimate's sculpture

Estimate: the story behind the sculpture

To pay tribute to the Queen’s horse Estimate, who won the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot in 2013 - the first time in the race’s history that it had been won by a reigning monarch - Nichola has created this beautiful bronze effect design of Estimate with exquisite detail on the saddle cloth. World Horse Welfare is a welfare advisor to the British Horse Racing Authority.

The design inspired by Estimate's story

Estimate's sculpture design

The artist: Nichola Eddery

Nichola is the daughter of legendary jockey Pat Eddery & successful lady jockey Carolyn Eddery. For many years Nichola has studied the composition of the horse and drawn great inspiration from her involvement in the horse racing industry. She also expresses a great love for portraiture, still life, landscape and other figurative work. Nichola’s style reconciles her achievements in academic realism, her love for beauty and colour and passion for the sporting and fine art composition.
