Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
I've kept this book out of the library for months at a time just because it's such a good reference and so interesting.
John McCririck's eclectic style and personality are reflected in this book, as is his healthy hatred for all bookmakers. He dips into his personal experiences of memorable races and courses, takes us through A Day at the Races, and blows the cover off the mysteries of betting.
Includes a guide to the hand signals used by tic-tacs, the memorable white-gloved gentlemen found only on an English racecourse, and a comprehensive list of slang terms and codenames for various prices.
This book is a very good read and is worth going out of your way to get.
