John Frederick Herring (Senior) was a stage-coachman turned animal painter. He drove the High Flyer stagecoach between London and York for four years before devoting himself to painting pictures. For many years he worked in the Doncaster area and painted 33 consecutive winners of the St Leger. He also painted pictures for George IV and Queen Victoria. St Patrick was the winner of the 1820 St Leger.
