Philip Blacker


During 13 years as a professional steeplechase rider, during which time he rode 340 winners, competed nine times in The Grand National and was fourth to Red Rum in 1973, Philip developed a passion for sculpture. Under the guidance of Margot Dent he created three editions all of which were bronzes based on the Grand National. He has been commissioned to create largescale pieces from Ireland to Australia and is regarded by many as one of the finest sculptors of equine and Animalia.
