Trail of Painted Ponies "Godspeed" 1E/2,114. Ornament also available.
Pony Story: Created by an artist who is intimately familiar with racehorses because she owns one, "Godspeed" is more than a brilliant rendition of a jockey on a Thoroughbred whose tail and mane flag in the wind as they speed towards the winner’s circle. Wearing checkered blinkers (symbolic of the checkered flag associated with a winner) and colorful silks (that identify the owner and carry a shamrock for good fortune), it is a lucky piece in its own right. The title comes from a term used when trainers send their riders out for a race, and wish them a safe journey and safe return. For those who believe in luck, it is a gift of hope for a prosperous journey through life.
