Product Overview

Salesman Victor Barnes believed that he had it all - tops at his job, a beautiful wife, two wonderful children, a comfortable Australian lifestyle, no worries - until one fateful day when he was pulled over on the motorway by a flashing blue light...

Set against the thrills and spills of thoroughbred horse racing, 'Silks and Saddlecloths' is the compelling story of Victor Barne's attempt to rebuild his life after the most terrible loss which takes him back to the West country roots and then plunges him deep into the dangerous world of racing intrigues and passions, of shady dealings and dopings.

He buys a rogue stallion, then a steeplechaser entered for the Grand National...and meets Mary, his trainer's headstrong and gutsy daughter...but can he turn his own tragedy into ultimate triumph in the Derby?
