    Footage of whippet racing.

  • Description

    Whippet racing. Location of events unknown.

    Animals; sports. Whippet racing. CU Man kneeling in field; with dog beside him; barking. GV part of race course: long lanes divided by short fence; with a couple men crouched holding their dogs waiting for the start; a man watches from behind. Race starts. CU men run by. Shot of men at the other end of the track who wave white towels for the dogs to see and run toward.

    The men run a few yards; start waving again (seen all by themselves like this; separate from dogs etc.; they look like lunatics--wacky) Next; a man playing fetch with his whippet in a field; as a really cool train goes by in background. Then a nice shot of an old wooden fence with gates open to a yard of a brick building; man and dog come one gate; and the same combo doubled come out the other; and all walk down street together. Man's best friend; etc. Pets; recreation.
