Hugh Bowman, one of the world's best jockeys, is set to be immortalised in art in his home town of Dunedoo, alongside champion mare Winx.
"I left Dunedoo when I was pretty young and then when I left school, pursued my dream of being a jockey," Bowman said.

"It gives me a great sense of pride and I'd hope that it does bring some activity and interest to the village, because it really is a beautiful town," he said.
For nearly a century the grain silos have been the tallest thing in the town of just over 1,000 people.
