"Painting in the pre-photography era, Troye provided the trotting and Thoroughbred communities with expertly crafted portraits. Without them the world might not have had a visual record of trotting horses that include Abdallah, Belmont, Dexter, Dictator and Mambrino Pilot and Thoroughbreds Lexington, Glencoe and American Eclipse. Troye is believed to have painted more than 350 horses, mainly racehorses from across the Southern states, during his career" (Harness Racing Museum). This book recounts his career "as an artist and as a man, with the racing exploits of the horses he painted of the men who owned, trained, and rode them.
