Garrison was one of the top three American jockeys in the beginning of the sport of horse racing. The well-known term known today as a "Garrison finish," was named for his penchant to unleash a rousing finish to get up in the last stride or two, to win. Presented is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own both the actual program and admission ticket of the 1893 American Derby at Washington Park, Chicago. The New York Times,respected horsemen, and turf leaders have all stated that this race was his most famous win of his illustrious career. The event was the second richest race in the 19th century and jockey's superior tactics and trickery led to the victory. The program and ticket are in beautiful, unmarked condition with the former sporting an elegant picture of the track's grandstand.
