I just wonder, is there any music you can assocciate with racing, the personal thoughts about your horse(s) birth, death, performances etc. Maybe I am the only one. I'll give an example, I had strong feelings about Beethoven's Pastorale some eight years ago when our filly ran when I saw the video, just heard that music.

Yes Amber Va, it's beautiful, I am rather familiar with Carly Kaiser, she is one of the best. Maybe you will listen to:

The now famous musical score by Carl Davis from the movie "Champions",starring John Hurt as Bob Champion & Aldaniti as himself:

Once I heard this beautiful music while former winners (Party Politics) were on parade during a Grand National meeting: Nella Fantasia from the movie the Mission by Ennio Morricone. A few years later I received a cd from Sarah Brightman, and guess what was on it?

And also the ouverture of Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves by John Williams. When I hear it, I see the Grand National Race.


I learned to appreciate this music while wathing the now notorious programs from the BBC concerning the Grand National, Royal Ascot, Prix de l'Arc the Triomphe etc. with Claire Balding and Willie Carson.
