    Full title reads: "America. The Kentucky Derby. America's greatest classic & biggest prize (nearly £15,000) won by 'Burgoo King' ... No. 13 on the card!"

    Kentucky, United States of America (USA).

    Horses move down to the start.

    Horses set off on the race. High angle shot of the field speeding down the course. The crowd on the inside rail are moving round to get a good view as the race moves on.

    Good shot of men and women calling their horses on from the stands.

    The horses round the final bend and Burgoo King comes out to have a commanding lead. The commentator is getting very excited as the horses approach the finishing line. The No. 13 horse, after a couple of reminders with the whip wins easily.
