“There are few more stirring sights in sport, than to witness the finish of a prestigious horse race. The bright blur of horses racing toward the winning post, with jockeys pushing their mounts forward, urged on by the encouragement of the racegoers.
This book celebrates the great characters and performers, both human and equine, who have been involved in such contests. It features the owners, trainers, jockeys and, above all, the champion thoroughbreds who have written their names into the legend of the sport of kings.
From Flying Childers, the first great racehorse of the 18th century, through to Frankel, the world’s best Thoroughbred, who remained unbeaten in his fourteen-race career.”
With over 220 photos, illustrations and drawings, this beautiful book will be a centre piece for any horse racing enthusiast’s coffee table!
Written and compiled by John Carter, who has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to writing books on our beloved sport, it journeys through some of the greatest equine “glories” we’ve come to expect in racing.
Documented and illustrated beautifully, this book will have you mesmerised from start to finish.
