    The race took place on 5 May 1934.

    The location is Churchill Downs racetrack, Louisville, Kentucky.

    "man looking through binoculars" - that's commentator Clem McCarthy.

    Leading at 00:40 is Mata Hari, ridden by John Gilbert.

    The race is won by Cavalcade, ridden by Mack Garner.
