Metro news

It’s nearly midnight on Friday and all we have for you today is a painting horse sent in by reader G (thanks). Not to be rude (well a little rude) but this horse doesn’t even paint that well and that paintbrush could easily be a cigarette. The thing is Metro Meteor was a talent in the field, fastest turf sprinters at Belmont and Saratoga and won eight races and $380,000 in purse money. So who was it that took time out to get a horse with a name like that up to speed with a brush in its mouth? If you have time on your hands you can find the answer to that here. But given that there are a lot of serious animal artist fans out there (we get all your emails and letters – thanks for that) and it is Saturday (now) so here you go.
