Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Magic Moments of the Turf is written by Graeme Roe and is a collection of stories and anecdotes featuring a broad section of people who are or have been connected with horse racing including trainers, jockeys and owners. The stories are a mix of funny, exciting and sometimes almost tragic. Illustrated with many color pictures this is a fantastic gift for any fan of horseracing.  From Frankie Dettori, through to Ruby Walsh; most of the great jockeys have contributed alongside owners, trainers, clerks of the course, bloodstock auctioneers, bookmakers as well as journalists. 

About the Author

At the age of forty Graeme Roe decided to take up riding and under David Nicholson's guidance gained an amateur National Hunt license. For ten years he rode both on the flat and over hurdles and fences. His biggest success was winning the Ayr Yeomanry Cup on Dom Perignon.  He then took out a Jockey Club permit quickly followed by a full license. Among his many winners were All Bright, Dom Perignon, Kitty Wren, We're in the Money, Le Grand Maitre, Fairly Sharp and Bad Beatrich.  Graeme now runs a communications firm and successfully self-published Touch of Vengeance and Odds on Death.
