Book Summary:

Robin Oakley brings alive the colourful world of those who ride and train jumping horses. With elegant production and gripping images The History of Jump Racing chronicles the social and economic changes which have brought the sport's ups and downs-like the development of sponsorships and syndicate ownership, the near loss of the Grand National, the growing domination of the Cheltenham Festival and the growth of all-weather racing to meet the bookies' demands for betting shop fodder. Pace and colour is provided by stories of the horses who have been taken to the heart of racing crowds, like the Irish-trained hurdler Istabraq and Best Mate, the three-times winner of the Cheltenham Gold Cup for England. Famous rivalries and memorable races are re-lived and key victories revisited in portraits of and interviews with the owners, jockeys and trainers who have dominated the sport. The emphasis will be largely on the past fifty years-from Arkle to Tony McCoy-but a significant introduction by Edward Gillespie encapsulates the past history of what was previously known as 'National Hunt Racing' and sets the stories in context. .

Book Summary:

Peter O'Sullevan has been at the heart of horse racing for sixty years. For television viewers he was 'The Voice of Racing', as his distinctive tones formed part of the folk memory of the sport's greatest occasions - Nijinsky's Derby, Red Rum's Grand Nationals, Dawn Run and Desert Orchid's Gold Cups, and countless others. For readers of his newspaper columns he was 'King of the Naps', a uniquely well informed pundit whose unrivalled connections brought him a huge following, both for the quality of his tipping and the trademark 'exclusives' and humour of his reporting.Now multi-award-winning Sir Peter pays tribute to the heroes - equine and human - who have enriched his racing life. Arkle and Sea Bird II, respectively the finest jumping and Flat horses of the 20th century, are joined by the two best horses to have carried the black and yellow O'Sullevan colours, the great sprinter Be Friendly and Attivo, 'a right little hero' who won the Triumph Hurdle, Chester Cup and Northumberland Plate. Lester Piggott and Gordon Richards, the two finest Flat jockeys of the modern age; fabled jump jockey and top trainer Fred Winter; Rae Johnstone and Scobie Breasley, two jockeys from overseas who left an indelible mark on British racing; and three trainers whose names pepper the big-race records - Vincent O'Brien and Paddy Prendergast from Ireland and Alec Head from France.In the beautifully illustrated Sir Peter O'Sullevan's Horse Racing Heroes, one racing hero pays affectionate homage to twelve heroes of his own.
