TheHorseStudio.com review: over 150 black and white photos complement this wide variety of news reports that include coverage of the first ever Cheltenham Gold Cup, the Red Rum Grand Nationals, the mysterious loss of Shergar to kidnappers, the arrival of galloping grey Desert Orchid, coverage of Fred Archer, the arrival of American jockeys on the British racecourses and so much more. Travel through the 1900's with history of 1920's, 40's and the WWII impact on the first part of that decade, to Belmont's first European winner coverage. Lots of coverage of the great trainer Sir. Gordon Richards, some articles of the Queen's horses and much more. This is a hard to find book that is super for the racing enthusiast.
