Celebrating four-legged legends

April 6, 2017

Our latest collection of stamps for Royal Mail, Racehorse Legends, features eight champion horses that achieved their greatest wins on UK race courses over the last six decades. Only eight legends? You may ask. Royal Mail, Great British Racing and Racing Post spent plenty of time selecting the ones that truly merit the title! From Frankel to Estimate, you’ll sure find the one closest to your heart.

We commissioned original paintings from Michael Heslop of four flat racers and four national hunt horses captured in action during the course of their iconic wins including Desert Orchid winning the Cheltenham Gold Cup in 1989. This Special issue also includes The Presentation Pack, First Day Covers and Hand Stamps.
