A horse and its rider have both collapsed, apparently after jumping the fence behind them. A dandy with cigar in his mouth and shiny bows on his shoes comes up to the two. The caption reads "Bravo, Marquis! You're the first!" Below that we read, "Some folks are lucky...everything turns out all right for them!" (Virginia K. Anderson 04/17/95)
