ONE MAN: THE HORSE OF A LIFETIME
His big race successes included two King George VI victories in 1995 and 1996; in the latter he shattered the Kempton three-mile course record. ONE MAN also won over 3-1/4 miles in the Hennessy, over 2-1/2 miles in the Comet Chase at Ascot and finally over the minimum trip of two miles in the Queen Mother Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.
No horse has ever won both the King George and the Champion Chase, and the victory at Cheltenham silenced his critics, elevating him to the status of, "All-Time Great".
It was the manner of his victories which was so impressive and that so endeared the grey to the racing public. ONE MAN had an incredible cruising speed, was a sensational jumper of fences and above all, had a wonderful temperament.
This is a dramatic and moving story, told by John and Lisa Hales and featuring Richard Dunwoody, Tony Dobbin, Neale Doughty, Brian Harding, ONE MAN's lass Audrey Walker and trainer's son Nicky Richards. A fabulous tribute to a much loved horse who gave so much pleasure to both his connections and all National Hunt fans.
The story of a career that spanned six seasons, 35 races and 20 victories is narrated by Sir Peter O'Sullivan.
