    The Steeple Chase Mickey Mouse Production Drawing (Walt Disney, 1933). In this short directed by Burt Gillett, Mickey is the jockey of Thunderbolt, a prize horse ready to run in the big steeple chase. Colonel Rolf Rolfe has bet his "last bottom dollar" on Thunderbolt to win, but when the horse discovers a bottle of moonshine and drinks it, Mickey has to costume two stable hands as a horse and ride them in the race. This is a truly delightful drawing of Mickey on his ersatz horse just after trying to clear a jump unsuccessfully. You can even see the face of one of the stable hands poking out of the horse costume at the neck. This can be seen at the 5:25 mark in this hilarious short. The graphite image measures 4" x 6" on 12-field, 2 peg hole animation paper with the number 6 written in the bottom right corner. The paper shows minor handling and edge wear; otherwise is in Fine Condition.
