In this Nevile Lodge cartoon from 1955, four Kiwi blokes stop their card game to listen to a horse race on the radio. They were possibly listening to a commentary by Dave Clarkson, who called many horse races and trots in the Canterbury region from 1937. The sound recording is of his last broadcast race commentary on 6 March 1971.
