Fifty Shades Of Hay: Over the centuries there have been hundreds of thousands of different names bestowed or inflicted on racehorses and in Fifty Shades Of Hay, David Ashforth has picked out a selection to baffle, surprise and amuse in equal measure. Described as "...witty and erudite, as you would expect, and I can’t stop leafing through it" by Tony Paley, Racing editor at The Guardian and The Observer.
Enable: Queen Of The Turf: A modern-day racing heroine, a queen of the turf, Enable stirred the emotions of fans like few before her. Any weather, any racecourse, and any opposition could be overcome; her achievements were unique. This is a story that had to be told and one that has been told through the lens of the Racing Post – its best writers, most astute analysts and unrivalled photographers all play a part.
Punch a Hole in the Wind: Since the thoroughbred horse was first developed over three centuries ago, these magnificent creatures have given the global race-going public limitless joy, and filled our memories with wonder and respect, and Punch a Hole in the Wind focuses on the stories of 50 champion Flat racehorses since the dawn of film.
Churchill at the Gallop: Renowned author, broadcaster and former jockey, Brough Scott, follows in Churchill’s hoofprints from galloping his pony in Blenheim Park, to topping the riding class whilst army training at Sandhurst, taking part in a famous cavalry charge in Sudan, playing polo in India, hunting foxes in Leicestershire and breeding racehorses near his home in Kent, after a minor interlude out of the saddle to tend to the historic task of winning the Second World War.
Blinkin' 'Ell: Beautifully written by Stevie Fisher and Brough Scott, this is both a celebration of life and a cautionary tale. It is a raw, boisterous, untutored, un-ghosted scrapbook of memories from a man whose world seemed to have ended in August 2014 when a massive stroke left him permanently incapacitated with only his left eyelid for communication.
