Description  
Degas undertook racing scenes throughout his career, characteristically manipulating his horses and jockeys from one picture to the next. Sometimes he was influenced by horses depicted in much earlier painting by artists such as Benozzo Gozzoli where he copied the painting in 1859. Often his horse pictures concentrate on undramatic moments before the start and a snapshot of a moment is captured.
