- "A young jockey in peaked cap and spurred boots, slim and almost girlish, kneels with clasped hands in profile to the left before a plain chair, his riding-whip beside him. On the wall is a picture of two jockeys galloping almost neck and neck. He prays to 'mighty Nimrod' and, in terms of the turf, asks for a wife, 'a filly well-bred'."--British Museum online catalogue.
Three paragraphs of letterpress text below title: O mighty Nimrod! to thee I pray for a helpmate, send me a wife, I beseech thee, such as will suit a lover of the turf and chace, and as I am to be saddled to her for life, let her be gentle in her nature, have a good fore-hand, and go well upon her pasterns ...
