Bregawn- The 1983 Cheltenham Gold Cup [01:18]
A historic Cheltenham Gold Cup took place in 1983 when Bregawn won the coveted race. March 17, 1983 marks one of the most extraordinary training achievement in the history of the Cheltenham Gold Cup. The first five horses home, led by Bregawn, followed by Captain John, Wayward Lad, Silver Buck and Ashley House all travelled to Cheltenham from the same stable at Dunkeswick in Yorkshire where they were trained by Michael Dickinson, in only his third season as a trainer. The jockey who steered Bregawn to victory on the day was Graham Bradley and the horse was owned by James Kennelly.

Red Rum- The 1973 Grand National (Aintree) [03:05]
Red Rum is perhaps the world's most famous racehorse. Red Rum's 1973 comeback victory from 30 lengths behind is often considered one of the greatest Grand Nationals in history. Red Rum beat the Australian chaser Crisp, carrying 23 pounds more, in what was a new record time of nine minutes, 1.9 seconds. The jockey on the historic day was Brian Fletcher and the horse was trained by Ginger McCain.

The 2004 Supreme Novices' Hurdle (Brave Inca vs War Of Attrition) [04:16]
I've chosen to upload the 2004 running of this race partly because it produced a terrific finish with the first two crossing the line together, and partly because Brave Inca and War Of Attrition would go on to win a Champion Hurdle and a Gold Cup respectively two years later, thereby making this race a significant one historically.

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!!!
