ARKLE – Portrait of a Legend (DVD)
On this wonderful film the story of Anne Duchess of Westminster’s champion steeplechaser is retold. A King George VI Gold Cup, three Hennessy Gold Cups, a Whitbread Gold Cup, an Irish Grand National and three Cheltenham Gold Cups were the highlights of his career; and over thirty years since the mighty ARKLE was retired from the racetrack, the Irish are still looking for the next ARKLE!
New footage together with new interviews with many of the people connected with ARKLE bring this story to life: David Nicholson, Willie Robinson, Jane Baker, Paddy Woods, Dan Daly and ARKLE’s proud owner, Anne Duchess of Westminster.
Vintage race footage narrated by the incomparable Peter O’Sullevan and archive interviews with Pat Taafe and Tom and Betty Dreaper all ensure the legend of ARKLE, steeplechaser of the millennium, will live on to thrill future generations to come!
