Two 1985 'Spend A Buck' Original Drawings by PEB (2)
Creatively blended, horse racing and beach activities combine in these framed and matted watercolor prints that feature 1985 Kentucky Derby winner Spend A Buck. The first depicts trainer Cam Gambolati and owner Dennis Diaz sleeping on the beach under an umbrella. The piece refers to the $300,000 Monmouth Handicap and is signed by PEB and dated "85." Measures 31x23." The second of his watercolor pieces depicting Diaz and Gambolati situated at the base of a beanstalk with money growing from it. A "Jersey Derby" adorns the very top and Diaz queries: "Where does our 'buck' stop?" a reference to the amount of money made by skipping the Triple Crown in 1985 and going after the bonuses offered at Garden State Park.
