punter's jingle - 'Call to Post' the First call

'chet atkins' the great legendary folk guitar player who died around 10 years ago at the age of 77. am a great fan of chet and i had 3 of his cassettes, now i have most his albums in mp3s.
recently i heard this rare wonderful tune 'Kentucky Derby', probably recorded in late 50s.
i am sure, all of you guys might recogonize the piece at the begining of this tune....

"First call" a bugle call is a short tune, originating as a military signal announcing scheduled and certain non-scheduled events on a military installation, battlefield, or ship.

at a horse race, where the tune is also known as the 'Call to the Post', it is a signal that all mounts should be at the starting gate because the race is about to begin. The tune is usually sounded by a bugler five to 10 minutes before the scheduled start time of the race.


our RWITC has the best tune in the world racing history. 
at pune - purrrrrrrrrrr......... and at bombay - peeeeeeeeeeee......
