A rare harness racing film from the middle of the 20th Century has been posted online by the National Film Board of Canada.

Titled Silks And Sulkies, this short documentary from 1950 captures the thrill of harness racing on Prince Edward Island. The short follows Bellhop's career as a pacer, from his 'unwilling' introduction to harness through trials with a sulky to his first big race. The film culminates with scenes of trotters and pacers at Charlottetown's Old Home Week.
