Every personality (human and equine), event and issue of importance in the history of both flat racing and steeplechasing will be referred to somewhere in the book. In addition, the off-track world of racing will be explored through the chapters dealing with gambling, scandals and disasters, social and cultural aspects, media coverage and the business of the racing. Written by two acknowledged authorities on the racing scene, this book is the definitive work on 'the horses', with every page a visually exciting and information-packed celebration of the sport.

HarperCollins 244320 Great Britain 1993 0732201233 / 9780732201234 Hardcover (Printed Boards) Very Good Condition Horses are gentle creatures that are ridden by people for sport, work and pleasure.

Part of the "Collins Eyewitness Handbooks" series, this book is a photographic identification guide to more than 250 horse breeds from around the world. The introduction explains how the book works, setting out the various horse and pony families in simple terms. The different varieties are then systematically arranged by breed. Each entry is illustrated with an original colour photograph which is carefully annotated to highlight distinguishing features, such as coat colour, average height and temperament. Detailed information panels give essential facts and figures for every example. 255 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

The Anatomy Of The Horse, George Stubbs
6 George Stubbs The Anatomy Of The Horse
Dover Publications 245160 Great Britain 2013 0486234029 / 9780486234021 Softcover Very Good Condition George Stubbs (1724-1806), an English artist famous for his portraits of thoroughbred race horses and for other animal paintings, was also the author of the illustrations and text of The Anatomy of the Horse, one of the truly remarkable anatomical studies of its subject. First published in 1766, Stubbs' work was based on numerous dissections, a practice far from generally accepted in his century. Stubbs' horses, shown in this edition on 36 large plates, are memorable for their uncanny life-like quality, nobility, and extreme anatomical precision.In this systematic study, Stubbs depicts the horse in three positions ? side, front, and back. He first presents the skeleton alone in each of these three positions, then devotes to each position five studies of layers of muscles, fascias, ligaments, nerves, arteries, veins, glands, and cartilages. Accompanying each of these eighteen etchings is a schematic etched outline with lettered parts that are keyed to the identifying text. The text is given both in Stubbs' original version and in a modernized version prepared in the Thirties by J. C. McCunn and C. W. Ottaway. 121 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Animals & Nature::Horses; Animals & Birds; ISBN: 0486234029. ISBN/EAN: 9780486234021. Inventory No: 245160. Paperback

Under Moody's patient and masterful guidance, the hulking injury-prone filly matured into a champion, idolized by a devoted following more akin to a rock band than a racehorse. With her invincible run and marauding dominance, Black Caviar has returned racing to the glory days of more than half a century past and secured a reputation that will echo for as long as horses are sent out to race. this full-colour edition features more than 150 images celebrating Black Caviar's achievements. 438 pages.

Seabiscuit: The True Story of Three Men and a Racehorse, Laura Hillenbrand
13 Laura Hillenbrand Seabiscuit: The True Story of Three Men and a Racehorse
Fourth Estate 245678 London 2001 0007167040 / 9780007167043 Softcover Good Condition The true story of three men and their dreams for a racehorse -- Seabiscuit -- that symbolised a pivotal moment in American history, as the twentieth century's greatest nation found the courage to bet on itself to win against the odds. Now a major motion picture directed by Gary Ross and starring Toby Maguire and Jeff Daniels. In 1936 the habits of 19th-century America were finally consigned to history just as Margaret Mitchell's Gone with the Wind was published. In their place, modern America was born. But what defined this new era? Nothing more than the story of Seabiscuit, a stunted colt with asymmetrical knees that had for two years been hacked around no-good race tracks which led to permanent leg damage. Yet by 1937 Seabiscuit could draw crowds of 60,000 and had more newspaper column inches devoted to him than Mussolini, Hitler or Roosevelt, his popularity peaking during his appearances at the Santa Anita Handicap. America had gone to the races for the first time since the Depression and fallen in love with a misshapen colt of great character. Now it wanted a winner. Seabiscuit is aslo the story of three men: Tom Smith, a former Wild West Showman was the trainer; Red Pollard, abandoned by his poverty stricken family at a race track became the rider; and Charles Howard, a pioneer car manufacturer in San Francisco in the 1920s was the owner and financier. These three combined to create the legend of Seabiscuit and epitomise a dream for the emerging new America. 426 pages. Item Type: Film Tie-in. Tanning to pages. Black and white illustrations.

Mandarin 234987 Australia 1996 1863306064 / 9781863306065 Softcover Good Condition Four decades of tales from the turf from Australia's leading writer on history and horses, Les Carlyon. Every outrage that occurs on any racecourse anywhere can be explained by one line from Damon Runyon- 'Well, it is horse racing.' Les Carlyon's acclaimed collection of feature stories and vignettes from Australian racing now spans forty years. From Bart Cummings before he was a Cup legend to Colin Hayes and Kerry Packer and Peter Moody and his unbeatable Black Caviar, no one sees the magic and heartbreak in the world of horses and racing with quite the poetry of Les Carlyon. Les's eye is both sharp and tender, his writing is so vivid you can almost feel the steaming breath of the mighty gallopers on your cheek and he is under no illusions about the reality of this glorious, awful, fortune-making, heart-breaking sport. 284 pages.
