fantastic book for any horse racing fan, full of so much information you have to read it again to take it all in. I worked in racing and even I needed to concentrate on all the links this horse had with his owner/fans. Brilliant book
It is surprising given the amount of bloodstock that Godolphin own that they had not bred a horse of the calibre of Dubai Millenium before he arrived. Rachel is a well respected writer on pedigrees and she does a great job here of telling the story of this horse, who answered the dreams of his powerful owner only to have his career cut short by injury and his life ended by illness.
Definitely a loss on the track and possibly one at stud too, you cannot help but be moved by his huge presence in this book. Well executed backstage look at the top echelon of the racing industry.
