    SPORT: STEEPLECHASE

    Script is copyright Reuters Limited. All rights reserved

    Background: For the third year running, the Soviet race horse, 'Epigraf,' claimed honours in the annual grand steeplechase, main event in the International meeting at Pardubic, Czechoslovakia, recently. A strong favourite on his past performances, 'Epigraf' was ridden to victory by jockey, Prachov.

    Seventeen Russian and Czech horses competed in the 70th 'Pardubic Chase' - a highlight in the country's horse racing calendar.

    The long dry summer had dried the ground so hard, that many tumbles were taken over the biggest handicap - the Taxis ditch - and only eight of the runners completed the course.
