Kenny Russell was a revered jockey who won four premierships before being tragically killed during a race at the age of 42. Even more heartbreaking, his wife Carol was in the crowd and witnessed his death. However, after his death the horse racing community came together with kindness and compassion to support the late Russell’s widow. There is now a memorial race in his honour at the Callaghan Park, which she regularly attends. Gillie and Marc were commissioned by North Burnett Council to replace the beloved fiberglass sculpture of the late jockey. The last artwork, made by a different artist, was sadly deteriorating which his quite common with fibreglass. The artists worked closely with Carol to create a more accurate sculpture that would more closely reflect Kenny’s facial features.
