Design: The exciting scene of a horse racetrack is yet again redrawn, with an improved rendering of both the animals and the jockey, whose Union Jack racing vest is more clearly visible. The finish-line judge, who leans forward to judge the neck-and-neck finish between the discs, now wears a shorter coat and a bowler hat. The multi-tiered grandstand has been shifted into the far distance to emphasize the dramatic finish.

History:  As the previous label. Label scan courtesy of collector Helmut Janisch of Germany.
