A hand-coloured print satirising the scandal involving the Prince of Wales's race horse 'Escape' which was involved with rigging racing odds. 'Escape' has both of its legs bound by the motto of the Order of the Garter as a reference to it's losing a race only to win a race the next day. Sam Chifney is riding 'Escape' without effort and his whip in his teeth to the consternation of fellow jockeys. The Prince himself stands on the right with a look imploring the viewer to secrecy. Inscribed in the plate: Publisd Nov 22 1791 by S.W. Fores No 3 Piccadilly
