    Horse racing: crowds gather to see the the Irish Grand National.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "The Irish Grand National. People of all classes enjoy Ireland's Premier Steeplechase Race at Fairyhouse."

    Dublin, Ireland

    M/S of the stand with the crowds waiting, men and women, some with binoculars. The crowd are all looking to the left, expectantly. Another group look to the right. M/S at a high angle of the area with the bookies and betting boards - although we cant see the odds. The competitors walk to the start. The race has begun and the camera takes a long shot down the course as the riders advance over the fences. From the track side we see the winner crossing the line and being led away to the winner's enclosure.
