The Complete Encyclopedia of Horse Racing tells the story of the "sport of kings" from its earliest inceptions to the present day. It provides essential information on all the top jockeys, from Lester Piggott and Frankie Dettori, to Bill Shoemaker and Michelle Payne, famous horses, their owners and trainers and more than a dozen of the greatest races around the world. In addition, there are features on every facet of racing. This book is the definitive work on "the horses", with every page a visually exciting and information-packed celebration of the sport.
