by Andrew Ward, Portico
About this book:
Extraordinary but true stories from over 150 years of racing. This hilarious, sideways look at horse racing vividly recounts many of the strangest moments and oddest incidents from over 150 years of the sport’s history.
Andrew Ward recalls the time when spectators mounted two fallen horses and rode them to second and third places; the race which had to be re-run because the judge wasn’t in his box at the finish; the ultrasonic binoculars that allegedly stunned a horse and unseated a jockey at Ascot, and many more.
A totally original, offbeat collection of extraordinary but true stories, Horse Racing’s Strangest Races will be a delight to all lovers of the turf.
