• Short Summary

    Horse 'Dick Turpin' wins the Chester Cup race.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Chester. What a race! ... And what a picture!! The Pathe Gazette - accorded special and exclusive privileges - is proud to present this remarkable record of 'Dick Turpin' winning the 2 1/4 mile race for the Chester Cup - one of the 'prettiest' races in the world - by a head!"

    Chester, Cheshire.

    Horses line up at the start of the Chester Cup horse race. Various shots of the horses around the course. Large crowds watch from the rails.

    Horse No 5 - presumably Dick Turpin - is brought in and the jockey dismounts.

    N.B. Don't see what is so special about the coverage here MD.
