Elephant Derby races in America.
Tons of speed. Originally part of News in a Nutshell - international news stories in brief.
United States of America (USA).
Quirky item showing an elephant's Derby. Various shots of 5 elephants running around a horse racing course. A crowd watches from grandstands - we see them placing bets before the race. Each elephant has a number painted to its nose. A rider sits on each elephant's back. The riders hit the elephants with walking sticks to make them go faster - cruel.
