Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Celebrate the world of the racing thoroughbred—whose bloodlines can all be traced to four Arab stallions from the 1700s. Packed with factoids sure to amaze and amuse, it encompasses the great races, tracks, trainers, jockeys, and owners. Stories of heroic riders, frantic finishes, and famous horses, plus statistics, quotes, and lists, will engage anyone who loves a day at the races.

About the Author

John White has built up an impressive database of facts and stats on just about every sport imaginable, and his innovative Miscellany series now numbers some 15 titles from soccer and golf to car racing. An Irishman from Belfast, a breeding ground for legendary horses, trainers, and jockeys, he is fortunate to live close to some of the greatest racing stables not just in Europe but across the world.
