This painting depicting the fury of the battle of horses and jockeys to the finish wire is very loosely painted. The jockeys have gone to their whips and the dirt is flying! One rider looks back over his shoulder to gauge where his competition is, which will help him decide how hard to ride his mount. I contrast the warm colors of the earth and yellow silks against a cool blue, misty background.
