    It is estimated at £10,000-£15,000.

    The image on the right shows the polo pony Starshot.  It is by the British artist A.E.D.G. Stirling Brown.  The estimate on this is £1,000-£1,500.

    The three day sale at Cowdray Park will include more than 1,000 lots with estimates from £100 to £250,000.
