In 1482, the Duke of Milan Ludovico il Moro asked Leonardo Da Vinci to sculpt the biggest horse statue in the world. The famous artist never got around to completing it, finishing only the designs. It wasn't until 500 years later, in 1977 that Charles C. Dent, a United Airlines pilot, founded a non-profit dedicated to the creation of the horse. Twenty years later the statue was unveiled in front of Hippodrome de San Siro. It's a fine sculpture, 24 feet high, but there is nothing else to see here, so click your selfies and move on.

Leonardo Da Vinci's Horse, Milan Reviews - Write a Review
This is a gorgeous statue. Definitely worth a visit.
Outstanding piece of Leonardo's work that was rendered from Da Vinci's sketches (as it was never made during his time). It is worth the walk along the graffiti covered walls of the Ippodromo di San Siro. It is truly magnificent. The size and detail are amazing. A duplicate can be found at the Da Vinci Science Center in Allentown Pennsylvania USA. Read more in the inspiring Wikipedia article.
What a magnificent piece of art and collaboration of the ages. I'm sure Leonardo would be so proud of the effort put into making his vision a reality.
Was closed on a Friday in August but able to set from across the fence.
A mile walk in total, this work, 500 years in the making is well worth the journey. Travel along the graffiti wall there and back for an added bonus.
