SOTB Classic - Epsom Derby 1991 [07:08]
"Generous strides to Derby glory" One of the most popular and significant Derby winners in recent history was the Paul Cole trained Generous, ridden by Alan Munro. Watch how Generous clinched the 1991 Epsom Derby with remarkable ease. Twenty years on from Derby '91, the race would also be significant from a broadcasting perspective too. It is thought that this is the last horse race ever transmitted by ITV. ITV had a huge pedigree in sport, and they had nearly all the major racing contracts during the 70's and 80's. But they fell out of love with the sport since the demise of the network's flagship sports programme World of Sport. All ITV racing coverage had been passed on to Channel 4 by the 1990's. The Derby had to be simulcast on ITV and Channel 4 by law, as the race was (and still is) a listed sporting event that has to be shown on a channel with more than 95% coverage, and Channel 4 did not fit this criteria at the time. The 1991 Derby was given just a 15 minute slot on ITV, with the introductions by Nick Owen, and race coverage provided by Channel 4 Racing. Channel 4 would then show exclusive coverage of the Epsom Derby for 10 more years, until 2001, when the BBC won the rights back to show the race.

||:Angel Of Mercy, How Did You Find Me?:||Racing [01:27]
NO COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT INTENDED HD please? All Horses change the lives of the people around them, but the horses I've focused on here are the ones who stick in my mind are I feel the horses have done amazing things for their connections, be it the jockey, trainer, owner or even the public. Kauto Star & Denman- Between them they've ruled National Hunt racing for at least six years. Denman was the horse who got me into the sport, he'll always be my favourite. And Kauto, arguably the best since Arkle, whose career, which has been so brilliant, appears to be entering the final furlong so to speak. They are both 11 years old and they owe nobody anything. When the time comes for them to retire, they will go out with nothing to prove. Don't Push It- Not a horse in the same league as Denman and Kauto ability-wise, but he is the horse who gave Tony McCoy his first, lomg waited Grand National win where 14 others had failed. A true Aintree specialist, and a moody quirky animal who will be remembered in the history books for giving McCoy, trainer Jonjo O'Neill and owner JP McManus their first Grand National victory Frankel- A flat horse :o Named after the late trainer, Bobby Frankel. It may be a little early to say if he can become one of the all time greats but on what he's shown so far you'd be foolish to knock him. Unvbeaten so far and his 2000 guineas win was sensational, his massive stride settting him apart from his rivals at this stage. He has also given the most popular ...

Race with three Greys at Bonvilston proves popular with first time racegoers! [02:36]
One of the greys, Stoneriggs Merc, wins the race at 16/1 which was nice for several families I heard who placed small bets on it! One had not been racing since Desert Orchid as they had been abroad; but had clearly enthused their children with tales of the great grey! But watch the race through to the end. The staying on odds on favourite Kisha King is pressing him after the last; so Joseph Williams gives him a slap with the whip just to keep him going to the line. Now a small minority of people- often who have little interest in Racing or knowledge of horses worry about the whip. In fact; if you watch this video the horse comes right over to my camera and you can hear the whip and see the action close up. This should alleviate any worries - as you can see there is no way that the air cushioned whip has or can hurt or damage the horse in any way. So some say 'so why have it?' Well because horses are herd animals and use their teeth to communicate. A little nip administered by one horse will move the other horse on; or out of the way. Similarly the jockey uses the whip to keep a horse straight or keep it going or move him out of danger. Thus the stimulus of that tap of the whip has the same effect - the horse knows to keep going! As you can see from the video close up; the whip causes no problems for the horse who has a thick hair coat; but it understands to keep going. After all; while the horse clearly enjoys running; he does not know where the line is. You can see also ...

The Boys from Bangladesh: a Great Day out at the Point to Point [01:19]
A group of friends from Newport/Bangladesh have a day out with us at the point to point. Older brother Sanu and Sammi have been before to Chepstow races and enjoy the day out; but this was the first time out for the younger brothers Ranu and Jemal and their mate Navid racing. Ranu used to have a horse when he was younger in Bangladesh and many have suggested he should have been a jockey. The family run the Shoboraj restaurant in Newport which is the local Racing and Point to Point watering/eating establishment for trainers owners jockeys and racing fans. When one hears the media talking of racism in the countryside take it with a pinch of salt !! They will say anything to create moral panic! Racing is a true multi ethnic community anyway from the Maktoums as owners to the gaps in skilled stable staff being filled by Czechs, Poles and many from the Indian subcontinent, Mauritius etc. and owners from all over the world. The boys decided that though they can't gamble for religious reasons what they felt it was good to respect tradition so what they could do is pool a pound each and choose a horse from the paddock they liked the look of and get a friend place the bet for them. If they won they would donate it to charity - and they did! One thing popular at the point to point is to bet a horse without the favourite. They did this three times and won each time at 7/2; 5/2 and 3/1 !! It isn't the gambling that Racing is necessarily about. It is the intellectual challenge of ...
