Good but I want more

"I am a big racing fan and so seeing footage of the Kentucky Derby with Citation winning, Whirlaway, Count Fleet, Swaps with Nashua, Seattle Slew, Native Dancer lose his only race - these were great to see and collect. But I do wish that more of the footage from the 1950's and 1960's would become available. I know that film was hard to protect over the years but isn't there more out there?
This edition was divided into catagories that flowed very well. But I wouldn't even need that really. And I would hope that there would also be a DVD on the Preakness and Belmont. A collection of the other big races that have a long,glorious tradition the 'Handicap' Triple Crown, The Triple Tiara for 3 year old fillies, Turf racing through the last 100 years or more.
Moonlight Press Video did a very good job and I hope they take on some of the other great Racing Moments"

"During a time of very few horse racing DVDs, this item is a real gem. It features wonderful footage of past and present Kentucky Derbies - Triple Crown champions, fan favorites, upsets, etc. Citation, Secretariat, Barbaro, Iron Leige -- they are all here. The stories behind the races are brief and to-the-point; they don't overshadow the action. If you love Thoroughbred horse racing, this DVD is for you."
FIRST SATURDAY IN MAY

"I have quite an extensive collection of thoroughbred horse race DVD's and by far this is my least favorite of all. If your looking for black and white grainy film clips of races this is for you, otherwise I'd stick to the DVD; First Saturday in May, On The Muscle, or Barbaro a Nations Horse. The best part of this video is the box, since most fans already know the history of racing and who won what. I expected more and would return it if it were not a DVD which is non-returnable. Thank you.
