  • Description

    Full title reads: "America. The most sensational racing picture ... ever! Fisher on 'Head Play' objects to 'Bookers Tip' ridden by Meade in desperate finish for famous Kentucky Derby, alleging interference."

    Churchill Downs Race Course, Kentucky, United States of America (USA).

    Various shots of large crowds of race goers in the stands and placing bets.

    Horses are led down to the start.

    Shots of final stages of Kentucky Derby horse race. 'Head Play' and 'Bookers Tip' are neck and neck and very close on the rail. After crossing the finish one of the jockeys hits out at his opponent with his ridding crop.

    Slow motion shots of the finishing stages.

    N.B. There appears to have been another section to this film - possibly with an intertitle reading: "Objection over- ruled - who was right? Watch!"
