    Item title reads - Whippet Racing at Shelbourne Park. The "poor man's race horse" gives good sport. Ireland.

    There is an opening shot of bookmakers taking bets and people watching from the stand. Men hold their dogs and then release them, they race off down the track. We see the men running back towards us holding "rabbits" - pieces of white cloth, one of the men has only one leg. The dogs race towards them when they have finished, they all run about everywhere. M/S of one man and his dog looking at the camera. M/S of another man and dog doing the same.
