"A look at the world-famous chuck wagon races in Calgary, Alberta. Featuring the legendary Dick Cosgrave - the only 10 time winner of the event."
"A ringside view of the chuckwagon race - star attraction of the world-famous Calgary Stampede. Once it was ponderous Percherons and Clydesdales that thundered round the course. Now they are racers and it takes a firm hand to guide such horsepower. Chuckwagon brings you an exciting account of this extraordinary race."

"Produced in 1964, this film is a ringside view of the chuckwagon race, star attraction of the world-famous Calgary Stampede. Once ponderous Percherons and Clydesdales thundered around the course. Now they are racers, and it takes a firm hand to guide such horsepower. Chuckwagon brings to the screen an exciting account of this extraordinary event."
"Le film est basÃ© sur les cÃ©lÃ¨bres courses en roulottes qui rallient depuis 1923, Ã Calgary, des milliers de spectateurs; il rappelle que dans l'Ouest canadien, la mythologie du cheval persiste au siÃ¨cle des fusÃ©es."
