Of Horses and Heroes PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Of Horses and Heroes free pdf Brough Scott has been inspired by horses. As a professional jockey he rode them in the Grand National and at Cheltenham. As a writer and broadcaster, he has followed the racing game as far afield as Australia, Argentina, Hong Kong and Japan but for him it has always been the horses that have been at the heart of it all. In this collection of his writings over the last 40 years, he puts them centre stage. No one has ever written about the racehorse the way he does. Whether actually in the saddle on Red Rum, in the stable with Shergar, at the fences with Denman, or inflight with Motivator, he gives us a unique understanding of the equine athlete and those around it. He takes us up the gallops at Newmarket, on to the Moors at Middleham, into the Forest of Chantilly and across the Curragh Plain. He stands in the foaling box and at the winning post. He goes where only the gallopers go. No one who likes horses or racing should miss it.
