- "A horse-race, three horses gallop (right to left), one a neck behind the other; the horse in the foreground is the last, his legs are shackled by a buckled Garter ribbon inscribed 'Honi soit qui mal'. The jockey rides with his whip in his mouth, he is pulling the horse and looks out of the corners of his eyes at the Prince of Wales. The Prince, in riding-dress, stands (right) looking slyly at the spectator, his left forefinger to his nose, his right hand pointing towards the jockey. Behind (right) are dismayed and enraged spectators, on foot and on horseback."--British Museum online catalogue.
