A double DVD.
Flat Racing:
Clare Balding concentrates on the flat racing scene, counting down the 25 greatest races ever run. An amazing selection from Sea Biscuit’s defeat of War Admiral in 1938 to Persian Punch’s emotional third triumph in the Jockey Club Cup at Newmarket and High Chaparral’s amazing victory in the 2003 Breeders’ Cup meeting – the closest ever.

This official double DVD tells the story of Best Mate and those involved with him, including trainer Henrietta Knight, jockey Jim Culloty and owner Jim Lewis.
Best Mate quickly became the 'People's Champion' following his successive Gold Cup victories at Cheltenham in 2002, 2003 and 2004. His first race win in Britain was also at Cheltenham in 1999. It was therefore fiiting that a ceremony, following his tragic death at Exeter on November 1st 2005, was held at Cheltenham on December 10th.

Best Mate had become the first horse since Arkle in the 1960's to win three successive Gold Cups. He then established himself as the most popular race horse in Britain since Desert Orchid. A burst blood vessel meant that he was unable to defend his crown at Cheltenham in 2005. But, despite looking in great condition, Best Mate sadly Best Mate died during his seasonal return at Exeter.
