This photo is dated 1937, it is German text and begin with the name Horst Wessel, obviously Horst Wessel is not the jockey, he died in 1930.

If I see correctly, looks like a name of horse race event hosted in Düsseldorf on the 17th of November 1937.
Name of the horse: Blumengöttin.

Although on the web page for Düsseldorf, this event from 1937 is not mentioned...
Düsseldorfer Stadtchronik 1937
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

I agree with GregSingh.
The word after "Horst Wessel " seems to be "Ausgl." , which would stand for "Ausgleich".
Source: ebay, where a postcard of the same picture was for sale.
