Buckpasser - 1966 Horse Of The Year [11:49]
Buckpasser (1963--1978) was an American-bred Thoroughbred racehorse who won nine of his eleven race starts for international record winnings for a two-year-old of $586090. He was leading broodmare sire in 1983, 1984 and 1989. Buckpasser was a bay colt that was bred and owned by Ogden Phipps and foaled at Claiborne Farm in Paris, Kentucky. He was by the Horse of the Year winner Tom Fool, and his dam was the stakes-winning mare Busanda, by the Triple Crown winner War Admiral. Busanda's second dam was the Blue Hen broodmare La Troienne (FR). He was a half-brother to several other horses that included the stakes-winners Bupers (won $221688) and Bureaucracy ($156635). Buckpasser was inbred in the fourth generation (4m x 4f) to the French racehorse and an influential sire Teddy. Racing official Dr. Manual Gilman said of him, "Generally, every horse has about a hundred faults of conformation. I would defy anybody to pick a flaw in Buckpasser." Renowned horse painter Richard Stone Reeves said, "Buckpasser was the most perfectly proportioned Thoroughbred I have ever seen." Only two horses, Secretariat and Affirmed, have since been "in a class with Buckpasser". en.wikipedia.org

Melbourne Cup 1963. [05:42]
With Melbourne Cup time 2011 now upon us, I have just rediscovered an old dub to analogue video tape of a very old film I made in 1963, when then visiting Melbourne and, luckily, also carrying with me an excellent Paillard Bolex B8 spring driven movie camera. On arrival at the racetrack, I most fortuitously met up with a TV cameraman I knew very well and was invited to join his crew on the rooftop of the main grandstand at Flemington and, hurrah!, I was then able to record my own 8mm film of Gatum Gatum winning that prestigeous 1963 Melbourne Cup!! Transferred to analogue video way back, that old 8mm film DID capture the essence and some of the amazing atmosphere of that great horse race which was already "stopping a nation" on Melbourne Cup day - all of 48 years ago!! Back in Sydney again, I added a few supporting film clips and then recorded a rather scratchy sound track to a narrow magnetic edge stripe which I glued to the film and I tried to give it more immediate atmosphere by merging my own commentary with a recording of the ABC radio broadcast of the race which I had captured at the time on a tiny battery-driven tape recorder. Although very primitive by today's standards using modern hi-tech gear, I do hope that you really enjoy this authentic example of early amateur film making - warts and all - of a very historic horse race! Gatum Gatum was brilliant!!!
