The Belmont Stakes as a Movie- Poster art at America’s Best Racing

The 2013 Belmont Stakes is almost here, and I created this special movie poster treatment of it which you can see HERE.  I looked at a lot of great old Italian movie posters for inspiration. They were so dramatic and worked well in their job to entice the passerby to see the movie. I thought the Belmont Stakes could use something like that. So I unsaddled the horses, removed the jockeys and let them stampede toward the viewer, kicking up dust with NYC in the background. The track at Belmont is apparently called “Big Sandy” while the Belmont Stakes race is called “the test of champions” – hence my movie title. Hope you enjoy it!

PS:
After you view that, check out Hannah Means-Shannon’s interview with me about the Kentucky Derby and my racetrack art HERE!
