The 1913 Derby is remembered for the pivotal intervention of the suffragette Emily Davison. But the race, one of the first to be captured on newsreel, was remarkable for other reasons. Also present was Charles Bower Ismay, scion of the shipbuilding family vilified for the Titanic disaster the previous year, and owner of the runner Craiganour. Michael Tanner's history unravels the chain of events that led to Davison's death under the king's horse Anmer, and Craiganour's controversial disqualification.
