"I'll ride him for the Eclipse stakes. (He bends sideways and squeezes his mount's testicles roughly, shouting.) Ho! Off we pop! I'll nurse you in proper fashion." (U15.2944)

The Eclipse Stakes is an annual (July) Group 1 flat race for thoroughbreds over 3 year old. First run in 1886, it was named after the celebrated 18c. racehorse Eclipse. It is run at Sandown Park Racecourse (UK) over a distance of ~2km. The colt Ard Patrick was the winner in 1903.
