Product description

Review

Reading this fascinating book took me on a journey to every racecourse in Britain. John's work will certainly appeal to racing enthusiasts but I hope it reaches the wider audience it certainly deserves. The heart-warming story of the love between father and son shines from every page, sharing the humorous and varied experiences from course to course. If you are looking for a tale of racegoing revelry, family bonds and a passion for the Sport of Kings then this is definitely the book for you. -- Andy Gibson Racing analyst and pro punter. I first came across John whilst working for Racing UK at Carlisle a couple of years ago. Our paths have crossed a number of times since due to one horse - the redoubtable Matmata De Tendron. Andy Crook's grey has been a regular on the northern circuit for more years than I care to remember and he clearly takes after his owners when it comes to enthusiasm and the will to win. John has witnessed all 8 of his career wins and he was also on duty at Cheltenham on New Year's Day in 2006 when watching Burnt Oak taste Listed success in a bumper. Indeed, trekking up and down the country to watch his beloved horses has become a way of life for John. You will soon realise after reading a couple of pages of this book how much passion the author has for the sport. --Mark Howard Author and Racing UK pundit.
