Description  
This charming lithograph depicts a race at the Auteuil Hippodrome in Paris. The 82-acre Auteuil Hippodrome, which stands on the Route des Lacs in Paris, opened in 1873, and was designed exclusively for steeplechase racing. This is wonderfully illustrated here, with a fine field of horses negotiating a challenging water jump. The event shown is likely to be the Grand Steeple-Chase de Paris: this is the most important steeplechase event in France, and was first run at Auteuil soon after its opening, in 1874.
