A great book by the brilliant horseracing journalist David Ashforth. The book is made up of short chapters covering the horses, trainers, jockeys, owners and people that make the 'Sport of Kings' so unique.
Ashforth writes in a way that is informative and well-researched, yet always with an underlying dry humour, ensuring even a non-horseracing fan will love his book: https://merlinunwin.co.uk/.../ashforths-curiosities-of...
But don't just take our word for it... here are a few book reviews:
‘An immensely readable, entertaining and informative from beginning to end.’ Racing Post’s The Front Runner Chris Cook
'One of Britain’s best-loved racing journalists, David Ashforth has found the stories to capture the readers’ attention on all these topics and more. This book is the perfect gift for horseracing fans.' Hounds Magazine
'There are very few more skilled writers than Ashforth and his forensic research is liberally speckled with his trademark-understated wit.' Racing Ahead
'If you're a fan of racing under any code or any discipline, this is a book that you'll enjoy.' Fitzdares Times
