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!!!

2001 Norfolk Stakes [01:44]
him a week before the race and give him one easy work over the track. His race at Del Mar (the Best Pal) kind of blew my confidence in him. I said before, I thought he was a little lost in a three-horse field. I always felt he was capable of much better. This race set up better for him, although you've got to admit, it wasn't exactly the toughest pre-Breeders' Cup prep in the nation."
