HORSE RACING • HISTORY OF THE MELBOURNE CUP Price: A$35 DVD Rating: G Duration: 180 mins From Archer’s Walk to Kiwi’s devastating run. Rare footage of many wonderful Melbourne Cups – the jockeys, the trainers, the fashions, the politics – and Phar Lap. It’s the richest handicap race in the world that brings Australasia to a standstill on the fi rst Tuesday of each November. • HISTORY OF THE GOLDEN SLIPPER Price: A$35 DVD Rating: G Duration: 95 mins To win the Golden Slipper at Sydney’s Rosehill is to complete a Cinderella story in Australian racing. It’s about speed, and more speed – and it’s all over in about 70 seconds. It’s Sydney’s very special race and, quite simply, the Slipper is the greatest race for two-year-olds in the world. • THE CAULFIELD CUP STORY Price: A$35 DVD Rating: G Duration: 120 mins The Caulfi eld Cup in Melbourne is Australia’s premier handicap race over the classic distance of 2400m, and has long been regarded as the hardest feature event to win. This is because they reckon no other race in Australia has a richer tradition. It’s truly a cup full of champions. • 75 YEARS OF THE COX PLATE Price: A$35 DVD Rating: G Duration: 52 mins Three quarters of a century of this great race. It’s about a legend, about folklore – and think of the cast: Phar Lap, Chatham, Rising Fast, Tulloch, Tobin Bronze, Gunsynd, Dulcify, Kingston Town and Bonecrusher. This is one of the grandest theatres in Australian horse racing. 31
