What is yellow, has a round head and a microphone? Clare Balding made out of Lego of course!
Clare is just one of a host of racing personalities to have undergone a “lego makeover” for a video that has been released to celebrate this weekend’s QIPCO British Champions Day (18 October).
The new short film — which also features the Queen and racing legend Frankel — marks some of the day’s most iconic moments from the past three years.
Some of this year’s equine contenders also feature — including The Grey Gatsby, Cirrus Des Aigles and the Queen’s Estimate. The prize-money available on the day is now more than £4 million.
The video was produced by Graham Love of GLove Productions.
“I stumbled into this line of work by chance when, just before my 18th birthday my 2011 Rugby World Cup video went viral,” he said.
“I had such a great time making this project. I’ve never used Lego horses for film before so this was a first for me. I’m really happy with the way it has turned out and I think it really portrays what British Champions Day is all about.”
Hopefully the video can help the day to build on its previous success!
