Book Summary

Horse racing's superstars of the track come and go every year and even if the human element remains constant, new equine legends are created every year. The Horse Racing Miscellany is celebration of the world of the thoroughbred, from the four arab stallions of the 1700s - from which all modern racehorses can trace their bloodlines - to two-year-olds making their track debuts. Great races, tracks, trainers, jockeys, and owners are described in bite-size factoids to amaze and amuse, while stories of heroic rides, frantic finishes, and famous horses rub shoulders with statistics, quotes and lists. Fully revised and updated to include recent human and equine superstars, such as Black Caviar, Estimate and Frankel, Coolmore stud, the Makhtoum family and AP O'Brien, together with new lists and stories, if you love the Sport of Kings, The Horse Racing Miscellany is just for you.
