Format: Hardcover
For anybody with any interest in racehorses and gambling Hitting the Turf is a little gem and a must-read.
I bought it when it was first published around 1997 (?) and I've re-read it many times. I can open at it on any page and be immediately drawn into it.
Eccentrics, heros (and eccentric heros), hard luck stories, fools and horses are all there
David Ashforth writes a series of anecdotes superbly well that are informative, interesting and in very many places laugh-out-load hilarious.
Not a boring page in sight.

It is only a collection of previously published material and not necessarily the pick. Found it somewhat repetitive. Still rate Ashforth as one of the best racing writers.
