Footnotes

  • The winners of 1970 Grand National featured in the vignettes was Pat Taaffe on the horse Gay Trip. The jockey who died in 1992, was probably the one of the most famous steeplechasing jockey of all time, having ridden one of the most famous horses, Arkle, the owner being the then Duchess of Westminister, to three consecutive victories in the Cheltenham Gold Cup, 1964, 1965 and 1966 and 24 of Arkles 27 victories. He only rode Gay Trip because the assigned jockey, Terry Biddlecombe stood down due to injury. Taaffe's son, Tom, is still a trainer.
