InformationA unique journey through 60 years of the racing game.
For anyone who loves horses and horsemen, this is an irresistable book. Frontline experience gives Brough Scott's chronicle of the world of horse racing its distinctive edge, and 'Of Horses and Heroes' its unique perspective.From humble Black 47 to household name Denman, the horse who formed the landmarks along Brough Scott's sixty-year journey are all here: the fabled Warrior, on whom in 1918 Brough's grandfather led one of the last cavalry charhes in history; equine immortals Arkle, Mill Reef, Red Rum, Dancing Brave and Desert Orchid; and in the new millennium Best Mate, Motivator...and Denman himself.
Alongside the horses are the heroes - jockeys like Lestor Piggott, Steve Cauthen and Tony McCoy and trainers Vincent O'Brien and Charlie Whittingham...
