Stories of bravery, determination and some unforgettable horses.

Best-selling author and racing insider Anne Holland introduces her fifteen favourite racehorses. It is a dream line-up spanning three hundred years, from the great Byerley Turk, warhorse and ancestor of the thoroughbred line, to the steeplechasers and hurdlers of the twenty-first century. Anne’s passion for her subject and extensive knowledge are undeniable, and the drama of a horse and its rider taking a fence or a jockey coaxing his mount to a thrilling finish will grip you.

Winners All recreates the times the sport of horse racing has captured imaginations and tells the stories not just of the horses, but also of their bloodlines, of the people behind their breeding and training and of the jockeys who rode them to their successes. This book is rich with entertaining anecdotes and tales of courage, grit and not a little glamour.
