Pierre “Peb” Bellocq(French, b. 1926)
American racing fans have been entertained, amused, and delighted for more than 50 years by the vividly colorful characters created by the fertile mind of PEB. Born into a family of French horseman, PEB came to America in the mid 1950s, eventually landing at publisher Walter Annenberg’s Daily Racing Form and Philadelphia Inquirer, where he did both political and racing cartoons. The exhibit titled “PEB: The Art of Humor” ran 18 months at the National Museum of Racing.
