Every year during Labor Day Weekend the California State Fair hosted a Horse Racing event. In 1941, the event brought out more than thirty-five thousand spectators. On September 3, 1941, the horses Irrevocable (owned by J.O. King), Sir Maxim (owned by R. Magee) and Proud Shasta (owned by R.H. Martin) all competed during the third race of the day. This black and white photograph captures the first place horse Irrevocable with the owner J.O. King. The photograph was taken by Les Walsh of San Rafael.
