In case you’re wondering,  this is not the follow-up movie to Snatch or Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels or any other kind of pikey/ Guy Ritchie movie.

It’s an actual race taking place between two horses on a road somewhere in Ireland. Judging by the accents, the travellers are from somewhere in the South of the Republic. Cork or Limerick being the most likely.

The horses may be shoed, but it’s incredibly dangerous both to the animal and the road users as the never law-abiding travelling community do what they do best; disregard any laws what so-ever and drive their vehicles up the wrong side of the road.

I can only assume there was a large amount of money on this and if the race result hasn’t been settled, expect to see Russian Ladie vs Christy’s Fillie again on a road near you.
