    Mock horse race on Bondi Beach.

    Titles read: "Fiery Steeds! Now we'll jump 12,000 miles to Bondi, Australia, where Eve is training hard for the Maiden Stakes - ".

    Bondi, Australia.

    M/Ss of a man in a hat and swimming costume on Bondi Beach, taking bets. We then see several girls in riding hats and swimsuits riding along the promenade on toy horses; they press their feet down on chains between the horse's front and back legs to make the things move along - it looks like good fun. Some 'horses' carry two girls.

    Men shout encouragement to their favourites. The bookie says "Oh, the favourite's won!" and runs off over the beach, towards the sea, followed by several angry betters. Fade out as he dives into the sea.
