Photography of horse sports
This is a photographic portrait of jockey Silvio Coucci. He won the Spinaway Stakes, the American Derby, and the Arlington Classic that year. By 1934, he was the country’s second winning jockey by earnings; and by 1935 he held the top jockey title, winning the Santa Anita Derby and the Travers, Futurity, and the Alabama Stakes.
