Sporting scene depicting the horse races at Heaton Park in Manchester. Horses thunder past the spectators who are dressed in Victorian-era attire, including top hats and tailcoats, representing their high social standing. In the background there is a dry, dusty coloured landscape with trees and shrubs, the horse race is also visible in the background as the horses run a circular track. The sky is illuminated by yellow light from the sun, flags are being waved by spectators to show support.
