Oh, no, it looks like some mad artist has been running around the city stables, daubing paint on all the thoroughbreds. Maybe it's Vincent van Stop'n'Go. Is it time to hit the panic button and try and capture this person who daubs our best horses with oil paintings of horse racing scenes?
No, mate, you can relax. Have a look at the photo below. The horse and the foal aren't real. They're just life-size models at Federation Square, outside the Australian Racing Museum.
