• Short Summary

    Pekes race around Mrs Phipps-Hornby's garden as an appetiser for Goodwood race week.

  • Description

    Chichester, West Sussex.

    At the home of Mrs Phipps-Hornby, her five pedigree Pekingese dogs are put into traps, then race around an enclosed track in her garden, greyhound style. Several people watch and cheer them on as they jump over lots of little grassy hedges. Commentator says the guests come here "before watching the real thing at Goodwood race week".

    The Pekes gather round Mrs Phipps-Hornby for some titbits at the end of the race.

    Note: on file are some newspaper cuttings about the racing pekes.

    Cuts exist - see separate record.
