Description

The Horse Racing Manual guides the reader through a first day at the races, explaining all the elements and considerations, from what to wear to placing a bet. Unlike other books on the market, it takes the reader further and goes ‘behind the scenes,’ providing explanations into the physiology of the horse and where it comes from, the processes and people involved in leading it to become a racehorse, the breeders, farriers, owners, trainers, jockeys and more.

The author

Tom Peacock has spent 14 years working in the horse racing media, including four years as Chief Racing Correspondent at the Press Association. Most recently he was a racing reporter for the Daily Telegraph providing news, tipping and features and covering meetings around the world. He has twice been nominated as Reporter Of The Year at the Horserace Writers & Photographers Association (HWPA) awards and has appeared as an expert on the likes of CNN and talkSPORT.
