Original text: UN VAINQUEUR DE STEEPLE-CHASE - Ainsi tu me certifie que je suis arrivé le premier.... - Mon cher tu as été magnifique... tout le monde envie ton sort!......

Horse races in the 19th century involved mounted riders speeding across courses of varied terrain with jumps and ditches. These races had high injury rates, often requiring medical attention. The rider in this print, who has his arm in a sling, is told how much he is admired for his injured arm because he won the race.

Included in the Honoré Daumier III: Law, Medicine, and Social Satire exhibition, 2018.
