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:

‘It’s one of the real sports that’s left to us: a bit of danger and a bit of excitement, and the horses, which are the best thing in the world.' HM The Queen Mother on National Hunt racing. This book traces how much National Hunt racing has changed since 1945- and also how Britain has changed too. The advent of motorways has made travel easier and racecourse safety has improved but the challenges for jump jockeys -the bravest of the brave- remain. It covers some of the biggest stories in jump racing over the last seventy-five years, including the dramatic collapse of Devon Loch in the 1956 Grand National and the incredible exploits of three-times Grand National winner Red Rum. But it also contains lots of fascinating stories which the reader will not be so aware of, of trainers and horses long forgotten.

Book Summary:

Born into one of America’s wealthiest and most distinguished families, John (“Jock”) Hay Whitney (1904-1982) spent his childhood in an Italian Renaissance town house on New York’s Fifth Avenue, in Westbury, Long Island and Greentree, South Carolina. Groton, the prestigious prep school, transformed the pudgy, awkward, stuttering young boy with a penchant for day-dreaming into an accomplished young man with direction, who went on to study at Yale and Oxford. Jock pursued a life dedicated to leadership, to using his money responsibly and wisely, and to cultivating diverse interests. He brought patrician quality and flair to an incredible array of worlds: to café society as a redoubtable playboy; to sports as a polo player who appeared on the cover of Time and as a stable owner who raced horses on a prodigious scale; to family life as the husband of two of the era’s great beauties, the second being Betsey Cushing Roosevelt, FDR’s favorite daughter-in-law; to Hollywood as the producer, with David O. Selznick, of “Gone With the Wind,” “A Star is Born,” and “Rebecca”; to Broadway as the backer of “Life with Father” and “A Streetcar Named Desire”; to the arts as a collector and as president and trustee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art; to World War II as a volunteer and as a German prisoner of war who made a dramatic escape from a moving train; to politics as an early supporter of Eisenhower and later as a close friend of the President; to diplomacy as ambassador to Great Britain from 1956 to 1961; to education as Yale’s Senior Fellow; to philanthropy as an innovator; to investing as founder, in 1946, of one of the earliest venture-capital firms; and to journalism as the publisher who battled valiantly to save the troubled New York Herald Tribune. “Mr. Kahn covers, apparently in full, the life of Mr. Whitney. It is by writing down the ascertainable that the picture of his personality — an intelligent, concerned man with a talent for bringing together those who are poles apart — emerges... Each sentence, with style and sophistication, pushes forward the narrative with an offering of new information, laced at times with witty comment. There are no unanswered questions... [A] wholly absorbing... story of an unusual life.” — Richard F. Shepard, New York Times “In relating Whitney’s always-interesting story and in setting it in the texture of the times, Kahn writes with awe. In fact, there are times when he is irreverent. That is all to the good, but his Whitney is a thoroughly credible person, a genuinely well-mannered and nice person, who has wanted to do well whatever he started out to accomplish. He’s a delight to meet.” — Alden Whitman, Boston Globe “Kahn’s New Yorker style, richly anecdotal and detailed... does justice to this highly likable millionaire sportsman, diplomat, newspaper publisher, stage and Hollywood angel and Maecenas, who played all these roles with zest and imagination... A delightful tribute to a man who ‘epitomized, in a world of increasing egalitarianism, the vanishing patrician.’” — Publishers Weekly
