The 'glamour' of horse racing, drugs and money,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doped: The Real Life Story of the 1960s Racehorse Doping Gang (Hardcover)
I am not a race goer and have never been particularly keen on racing. That being said I couldn't put this book down. Bill Roper and his glamourous mistress, portray the more seedy and shadowy side of horse racing at that time, putting horses and their jockeys lives at risk for money. It is a riveting read and very well researched. I got a tremendous feel for the era in which it was set and the characters really came to life. I can highly recommend it.
