wide readership also. The author recounts the events, horses and

Recommended 

A comprehensive account of Jump Racing has been overdue. This book 
is a warm account of an exciting sport, followed by millions.

The author has provided a series of anecdotes and personal histories 
that provide depth to the history of Jump Racing. He has also very 
nicely laid out the history in a way that has not been achieved before. 
The additional words by Edward Gillespie add to the depth and the 
insights set out by the author.

There is good illustration and this is a book that will reach well 
beyond the Jump Racing fans and probably increase their numbers. As a 
good book should, it both educates and entertains.
