Souvenir from Beverly Racecourse

This tiny handmade jockey was a souvenir from the Beverley Racecourse in the 1920s. It could have the product of a local cottage industry, or was maybe made by a local jockey once he'd got his colours. Racing has taken place at Beverley Racecourse for over 300 years.
