Best Mate

£40.00

Product description

Hardback revised First Edition published by Highdown in 2004. signed by author, trainer and owner on title page and by jockey(?) on free endpaper. Unclipped dust jacket slightly curled at edges, but otherwise in very good condition. Black cloth covered boards with gilt title on spine. Slightly bumped at top and bottom of spine. Very clean and tightly bound with no further inscriptions.

When Best Mate raced up the hill at Cheltenham in March 2004 to his third successive Gold Cup victory, he made history and became the most famous racehorse in Britain and Ireland. His trainer, Henrietta Knight, also became a superstar, her gentle yet determined personality endearing her to the sporting public. This is the first revised edition of Henrietta's already-bestselling book about the horse, his achievements and the personalities involved in them. Three brand new chapters and new photographs bring the story right up to date as Best Mate starts the new season and his quest for a fourth Gold Cup.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
