The editors invited over 40 top writers and participants to provide previously unpublished accounts of their most indelible racing memories. The contributors include Dick Francis, Ian Wooldridge, John Oaksey, Lester Piggott, Vincent O'Brien, Peter Scudamore, Julian Wilson and Clement Freud. The book recalls great horses - Secretariat, Red Rum, Shergar - and famous occasions - Aldaniti's Grand National, the 1990 Breeder's Cup - but also invokes memories of the less well-known, including race meetings in Cyprus, Norway, Madagascar and the Australian Bush. It tells of the excitements and frustrations of ownership, the rides which went right or wrong, the satisfaction of a nice touch landed, the joy of involvement.
Excellent pages, slight edge and d/j wear.
