Weighed In is an atmospheric depiction of the Enclosure at Newcastle Racecourse at the end of a National Hunt race meeting. The grey in the red rug is the winner of the final race and follows the other placed horses back to the stables whilst the jockeys from the race have all returned to the weighing room and the “Weighed In” has been announced. On the path, race-goers are returning to the car park via the Members Entrance Bar – affectionately known as the “Weighed Inn”. As the race day finishes, other horses in training are being exercised on the course for forthcoming races and, across Jay Kirkman’s painting, horses are shown in different stages of work, ranging from active to exhausted. To the right, one of the jockeys exercising the horse's talks with the keen owner while a groom takes tack away. To the left, a helicopter takes off while in the distance race-day traffic heads back towards the city and home.

Each print is hand numbered and accompanied by a certificate signed by the artist. The certificate is numbered to match the print.
