This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in New York City, Marilyn Newmark was a sculptor of horses, including race horses and equestrian pieces.  She is known for her ability to capture detail. "Every muscle and tendon is exactly delineated..." (Sternberg 141).  In 1971, she won the Anna Hyatt Huntington Award, and in 1972, her equestrian sculpture, "Hacking Home", was selected as the Madison Square Garden trophy.

Newmark knew horses first hand because she was raised in the horse country of Long Island and continued to keep a stable there.  During her childhood, she did a lot of sketching of horses, and began sculpting them during her teen age years.  She studied at Adelphi College and Alfred University.  However, Paul Brown, renowned horse illustrator and author, was her major influence, and she worked with him until his death in 1958.  She used many of his sketches for her finished pieces.

Newmark first worked in ceramic, doing her own casting, glazing, and firing, but in 1969, she switched to bronze.  She received commissions to sculpt many famous race horses including Man o' War, Majestic Light, Triple Crown, and Affirmed.  She has an extensive list of awards and exhibitions and was an elected Associate Member of the National Academy of Design.
