Classic call: Bill Collins 1986 WS Cox Plate

Is this the greatest call in Australian turf history? Relive Bill Collins' spine-tingling commentary of one of the great renewals of Australia's greatest WFA classic, the do or die battle in 1986 between the two Kiwi stars, Bonecrusher and Waverley Star. This extended clip is from the live coverage of the event on national television. "The Accurate One" calls his way into sport broadcasting immortality, pulling out a line that today's scriptwriting racecallers can only think up ahead of time.
