Recent from Racing TV:
Racing TV published this video item, entitled “An iconic Classic: Brigadier Gerard beats Mill Reef in the epic 1971 renewal of the 2000 Guineas” – below is their description.
A race that is often regarded as being one of the absolute greats, with Mill Reef sent off favourite ahead of My Swallow and Brigadier Gerard, all three having shown outstanding form as two-year-olds in the previous season.
The field of six was the first single-figure line-up for a 2000 Guineas in the 20th century, most having been scared off by the brilliant performers at the head of the betting.
My Swallow set off at a tremendous gallop here, but had no answer to the Brigadier close home, who shot clear to score by three lengths under Joe Mercer.

In This Story: Ireland
Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.
The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.
A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
