Chester by Paul Hart.


Chester by Paul Hart.

Racing at this pretty and ancient venue dates back as far as the mid 14th century, making it the oldest racecourse in Britain. Bounded by the River Dee and a Roman city wall, the Roodee is the tightest and smallest course of all. The oldest record of a race here is that for a prize of a silver bell woth 111 shillings on Shrove Tuesday in 1540, continuing until 1609. The completely flat track is only a shade longer than a mile and can cause problems for larger horses that often find it difficult to get into their stride. In longer races, the competitors pass the standds no less than three times covering nearly two miles and three furlongs. The most famous of the long races is The Chester Cup, first run in 1824, being the highlight of a three day meet in May.

The group three Chester Vase run over 1 mile 4 furlongs and 66 yardds was first run in 1907 and is regarded as a trial of stamina for Epsom Derby hopefuls. Winners of the Vase that went on to Derby success include Papyrus 1923, Hyperion 1933, Windsor Lad 1934, Henbit 1980 and the charismatic Shergar in 1981. Another major race in the Chester calendar is the Ormonde Stakes, named after the unbeaten Triple Crown winner of 1886. A favourite for four year olds, the Derby winner Teenoso won in 1984. The tight course offers little hope for runners that find themselves out of position at the final bend. With only a 230 yard run in to the line, a low draw for starters of sprint races is often decisive. The lovely Chester course is a favourite for many punters offering spectacular race views from almost all aspects.

Described as the Deathknell of the Confederacy - Sharpsburg (Antietam to the North) was a savage bloodletting for both sides. It was said to be the bloodiest day of the American Civil War. In the painting, below the Dunkard church confederate General John Bell Hoods Texas Division - or what was left of it- stand in line of battle. In the distance Union Major General John Sedgwicks division can be seen advancing on the rebel lines. During the ghastly four hour struggle the Confederates managed to hold and then repel the bloodied remnants of Sedgwicks division back to the east woods and at about 10.30am, the carnage around the Dunkard church had ended. Eventually though, the Confederate forces were in retreat, loosing Sharpsburg to the Union but prepared to fight on for two and a half more years, bloodied but unbeaten.

Richard the Lionhearts tactical skills and military training played a substantial role in the capture of Acre in 1191 by the Crusaders. But Richard the Lionheart was ruthless and after the capture of the city he marched 2,700 Muslim soldiers onto the road of Nazareth and in front of the Muslim army positions, had them executed one by one.  But Richard the Lionheart was up against a great leader in Saladin and the crusades did not always go his way.  After he negotiated the Treaty of Jaffa with Saladin and secured the granting of special rights of travel around Palestine and in Jerusalem for Christian pilgrims, Richard the Lionheart started his journey back to England in 1192.  He was shipwrecked, and captured by the German Emperor Henry VI, only being released after a 150,000 mark ransom was paid.  This money was raised by taxes in England.
