Biography

American Hughlette Wheeler produced sculptures from the life of cowboys, cattlemen and horsemen. As a young man he also worked as a cowboy. Some of his best-known works included the life-sized statue of “Seabiscuit” and his jockey, George Woolf; a statue of Citation, owned by Calumet Farms; and one of Kayak the Second. At an early age, Wheeler fell ill from rheumatoid arthritis in 1943 and then became an alcoholic trying to relieve the pain.
