Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: It's a mighty long way from being a few days old and full of romp and roister to immortality in the record books. Thousands of horses start the long journey every decade, and racing fans crowd the tracks, in hopes of once more seeing perfection in the form of horseflesh. Perfection called Zev, Man o' War, Exterminator, Whirlaway, and a baker's dozen of other names. Out of thousands of races, a few are really memorable. Here are some from the last ten years: races to remember.

For racing fans only...

A ten minute glimpse at some famous moments from races of the past, as chosen by RKO Sportscope and narrated by Harry Wismer.

If you're a racing fan, names like Assault, Stymie, Natchez, Citation, Coaltown, Native Dancer and others will be familiar to you and their breathtaking last minute wins or loses are a part of racing history.

Footage of seven or eight races are shown, focusing mainly on the last minute across the finish achievements of the above-named horses and mention of jockeys like Eddie Arcaro come into play.

Strictly for horse racing fans, which I'm not. Would have looked a lot better in color since the B&W footage is on the bleak and blurry side.
