    The girl is Marjorie Wright, daughter of the trainer, Bob Wright. She is tying the traditional blue ribbon around the neck of the winner, Ben Tinto, the \"Blue Riband\" of the clip\'s title. Bob Wright is on the left holding the lead. In the middle, wearing a rosette is the owner of Ben Tinto, James Shand, the owner of the Liverpool White City greyhound stadium. On the right is Minnie Shand, his wife. \"Jim\" or \"Jimmy\" Shand, who had backed his dog to win £60,000, was not your typical greyhound owner. A dedicated communist, he sold his stadium in 1936 and supported the Republican cause in the Spanish Civil War, broadcasting from Madrid as \"The Voice of the Republic\".
