The Sport of Kings in Historical Context
This is a very readable book and I think it will appeal to those with not only a passion for horse racing, but to those wishing to dive deeper into the origins of the sport and the prevailing social historical context.
Racing Post: You may find it hard to put down. A comprehensive retelling of a rich racing history.
Racing Ahead magazine: It’s impossible not to learn massive amounts every time you pick the book up. Did you know that before the invention of the electric telegraph, at least one result of the St Leger was transported to Manchester by dogs trained to hunt by trail?
Love this book!
Fast paced, fascinating essays. Peter May brilliantly brings the sport to life. Didn't expect to learn so much. Would definitely recommend.
Mike Cattermole, TV presenter: It’s a highly entertaining, engrossing read which is more than just a colourful history lesson on the sport of kings. The depth of research is staggering and I learned so much.
Horse and Hound: Each vignette could be a whole book in itself, and May’s skill has been to distil each one to its essence and leave you wanting more.
Great book for racing fans!
