  • Description

    Fred Rimmell's Stables at Severn Stoke near Worcester, Worcestershire.

    M/S of a line of stable doors with horses looking out of each one; C/Us of two horses looking out at us.

    M/S as Kevin Bishop leads a horse called Tokoroa, the steeplechaser winner of 11 races to date, out of a stable door, followed by a goat; Kevin gets onto the horse while Fred Rimmell holds it steady and starts to ride off as the goat trots alongside.

    Numerous horses are seen walking out from the direction of the stables to a country road with jockeys riding them. M/S of the stable gate as Tokoroa, Kevin and the goat come out and walk up the road as commentator tells us the male goat, called Amelia (yes!), is Tokoroa's best friend and shares his stable. M/S of Tokoroa trotting up the road as Amelia runs after them.

    M/Ss at the stables when the horses have returned from their exercises and are walking round the courtyard. Tokoroa is ridden into the stable as Amelia follows.

    Note: There is a newspaper photo on file of Amelia showing his horns to a yappy dog while Tokoroa looks on from the stable door. See out takes on *PM0129* CP 318 RACING PALS.
