Watercolour portrait of a horse by Thomas Percy Earl (1874-1947).

Watercolour portrait of a horse by Thomas Percy Earl (1874-1947). To the reverse is written "Mumtaz Mahal, The flying filly".


Mumtaz Mahal was dubbed "the Flying Filly" after this daughter of The Tetrarch proved herself one of the fastest two-year-olds ever. An early purchase for the Aga Khan, she also became one of his most important foundation mares. Her descendants, which include Mahmoud, Nasrullah, Royal Charger, Abernant, Petite Etoile, and Shergar, spread her influence around the world, making her one of the most important broodmares of the 20th Century.
