Tretchikoff's foray into capturing motion on canvas, specifically in the context of horse racing, marked a significant shift in his artistic exploration. Starting in 1950, he delved into what he referred to as 'action studies,' which included depictions of figures engaged in various sports, such as rugby, ice hockey, soccer, and horse racing.

One particularly intriguing aspect of this period was Tretchikoff's close involvement with the horse racing scene in Cape Town. He would visit the racecourse, drawn to the excitement and dynamics of the sport. His passion for capturing the essence of the races led to a unique moment when he observed the winner being determined by examining a photo finish. Tretchikoff's enthusiasm was evident, and he was eager to incorporate this thrilling aspect of horse racing into his art. 

Tretchikoff's enthusiasm and dedication to his craft led to a commission to paint a mural of horse races for the Heerengracht Hotel in Cape Town. It was during this period that he likely created the artwork this artwork, capturing the exhilaration and energy of horse racing with his distinctive style.
