• Short Summary

    Horse racing from the St. Leger - won by the Aga Khan's horse - Firdaussi.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Doncaster. The Last of the Classics. The Aga Khan's 'Firdaussi' reverses Derby form with the same owner's 'Dastur' (second) - and once again Beary chose the wrong mount!"

    Doncaster, South Yorkshire.

    High angle shot of large crowds at Doncaster Race track.

    M/S of the riders list for the St. Leger - the sign is on boards above the crowd.

    People are walking from the paddock as horses parade in the background.

    Horses are led down the course - Hesperus, Celebrator, Violator (ridden by Gordon Richards), Royal Dancer, Tatague, Dastur, Taj Kasra, Firdaussi, Beneficial, Loningdale - all names are questionable due to poor sound.

    High angle shot from the grandstand as the horses go down to the start.

    The bell rings as the horses start to race. Shots of the Grandstand and of the race. The horses race past the finishing post.

    The horses are led through the crowd to the enclosures. Shots of Firdaussi in the winners' enclosure.
