'Twas St. Paddy's Day

The weather was bright and hot, the crowd, as usual, was "estimated at a quarter of a million" and the attention of virtually every sportsman in England was directed toward the ancient Derby at Epsom. As Queen Elizabeth and a sea of top-hatted gentlemen, fashionably dressed ladies and commoners from every class looked on from stands and packed lawns, Sir Victor Sassoon's St. Paddy, (third on rail, below), swept around Tattenham Corner and made a triumphant run for the finish. It was Sassoon's fourth Derby win.
