Books Info:

The Complete Encyclopedia of Horse Racing free pdf Now in its sixth edition, the Complete Encyclopedia of Horse Racing is an authoritative and comprehensive illustrated work of reference. The book tells the story of the "sport of kings" from its earliest inceptions to the present day. It provides essential information on all the top jockeys and the leading owners and trainers and the famous horses. 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. This book will be as invaluable to the fan who follows racing on television as it will be for the serious student, administrator and the media.
