Mchezo to produce jigsaw puzzle based on artwork of popular horse-racing artist

“Mchezo is a Kentucky company, so naturally we love horse racing!” said Ed Bryan, President of Mchezo. “Ms. Crute’s artwork truly captures the power and beauty of the thoroughbred horse, and we feel honored that she has agreed to partner with us on this project.”

“I am so excited to be able to share my artwork and passion for thoroughbred racing,” Crute said. “What fun to see my horse racing image made into a puzzle. With so much color and motion, it’s certain to be lively and challenging.”

The 1,000 piece puzzle, which will be titled “Into the First Turn,” is scheduled for release in September. It features an action-packed scene where a tightly packed group of horses are all angling for position as they race into the first turn at historic Saratoga Race Course. Crute resides in Saratoga Springs, New York where she exhibits her artwork during the entire summer race meet annually.

The puzzle, part of Mchezo’s Depot Street Collection, will be roughly 28” x 20” when completed, and will include a reference sheet with information about the artist and the image.

All Mchezo puzzles can be purchased direct at, or at the company’s growing list of retail partners.
