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.

Races to Remember (1956)

*** (out of 4)

Nice entry in the Sportscope series takes a look at several famous horse races from 1948 through 1955. The big highlight here are clips from the 1948 Kentucky Derby, which was the first footage from this that I had seen and this is coming from someone who has lived their entire life in KY. I'm sure horse buffs will get a real kick out of this short, which contains some great footage of these classic races but even better to know is that the picture quality is top-notch for such a lower-budget short like this. It's also worth noting that the cinematography is top-notch during all the races as we get some great visuals as well as some nice slow motion work.
