Racing Extraordinary : for this year.
Satirical broadside in the form of a racing journal, issued at the time of an Orange Order riot following the customary 12th July ritual of redecorating the statue of William III of Orange at College Green which prompted the Lord Mayor of Dublin to issue a proclamation banning this practice. Text reads: 'Owners, Names and pedigree of Running Horses: The L--d M-y-r, Speculation, by Expectant, out of Charlotte; Rt. Hon. W.C. Plunkett. Emancipator, by Jacobin, out of the dam of Emmet's theory ... Colonel B..k..r...Bladderumskite, by Arrogance, out of impudence ... if Emancipator should win, it is expectedthe Bishop of Dublin's (commonly called Dr Troy) participator will challenge the plate ...'.
