The Jockey's Prayer- Depicts a jockey kneeling on a stable floor, praying before a race. Includes text of prayer.1868.

Prayer:

O! Mighty Nimrod, as it is not my nature to run the race set before me alone, to Thee I pray for a helpmate. Send me, I beseech Thee, a wife such as will suit a lover of the turf and chase; and as I am to be saddled to her for life, let her be gentle in her disposition. I desire her to have a clear, full eye, a finely put up head and neck, in every particular a good forehand, and go well upon her pasterns; not too long in the reach, neither may she have too much stride for her gather. In build and bottom may she prove herself a star, and when it comes to the homestretch may she ever be equal to any task. Although I should wish her handsome, and a filly well bred, yet I beseech Thee, let not her beauties prove as blinkers to my understand in, nor her extravagance gallop me to destruction.

I am not easily spurred to passion, but should she endeavor to get the whiphand of me, I probably might be led to jostle and cross, which might ultimately end in some terrible rearing, plunging, and kicking up. Let her not, I pray Thee, be Tainted with the glanders of pride, nor the farcy of self-will, causing her, when I attempt to curb her for lugging heavily on the rein, to toss her head and bridle at my instructions, lest I should be compelled to put on the martingale of restraint, and force her to chew the bit of sober reflection. May it please The, Great Leader, so to direct my judgment that I may select a wife without spot or blemish, and always be proud of my bargain, as I journey on neck and neck with her in our matrimonial road.

May she be competent to take the reins at times as we glide smoothly along together, and by that means beller equalize our burden. Could I meet with such an article that had never been broke--not too large in thee girth, and who would come easily to collar---I should look upon her with that degree of satisfaction and admiration with which the Bedouin of the Desert feasts has eyes upon his favorite mare. Honest Harry Kemble would be more than pleased to hitch up and gaily prance with her to the Circus of Hymen, sign and seal the necessary nuptial bonds with many kisses and embraces, and cheerfully run with her the generous race of mutual affection, over the uneven course of life.

Extra Large - Measures a whopping 54" wide x 36" High. Each panel measures 18" x 36"

This is ok but it reads "Ganga Girl" on the sign and it's advertised on the site as "Ganja Girl". Seems like a small thing but everyone who has seen it on my wall remarks about how "Ganga" is mis-spelled.

Dear sir,
Sorry about that. When we first started making these, we made them two different spellings based on customer request. We accidentally shipped you the wrong spelling. We have since pulled the product and issued you a full refund and allowed you to keep the sign complimentary, and we sincerely apologize for the typo.
All the best!
