    Riders, dressed as if for hunting, take a ditch. L/S riders approach and take a jump. People are gathered to watch the race. More racing scenes, these jockeys are wearing silks and not hunting colours. The cameraman gets in quite close to some of the jumps to film the approaching horses.

    The winning horse is led away by its connections. The rider is one of those wearing silks. Pan with the horse as it is led away.
