Riveting scenes of horse-racing. From the thrills of steeplechasing in County Armagh, to flat-racing at the famed Maze Races in County Down, two of Northern Ireland’s most historic horse-racing events.
The "sport of Kings" in two different guises, as seen in two of the regions' most celebrated horse-racing locales. Jockeys, horses and spectators congregate for the beginning of the Tynan and Armagh point to point, a gruelling steeplechase across rugged terrain. Then we are transported to Down Royal Racecourse where a huge crowd gathers on the main stand and trackside to watch the action.
