The racehorse 'Haphazard' won several races in the early 1800s. He was painted three times by James Ward, who specialised in animal, and particularly horse paintings. This version by Ward, dated 1820, was one of three paintings of famous horses bought by one of the Theobalds at Ward’s sale in 1829. It has hung with the other two, 'Dr Syntax' and 'Walton', in the Billiard Room at Brodsworth Hall since the house was built in the 1860s.
