Sir Joseph Hawley’s Teddington, trained by Alec Taylor and ridden by Job Marson, won the 1851 Derby by two lengths at 3-1 odds. The painting of the finish shows Marlborough Buck beaten by two lengths in second, with Neasham another length away in third. Interestingly this pair of paintings appears to have been commissioned by Sir John Massey Stanley Errington, who befriended Hawley in Italy and who is credited with having developed the younger man’s interest in racing. Errington's card, attached to the reverse of one of the pictures, lists his address as 31 Avenue Champs Elysées. Another pair of paintings by Alken of Hawley’s 1858 Derby Winner Beardsman was sold at Sotheby’s, London on 7 June 2006.
