OFF TO THE RACES

A guide to horse racing that defines, illustrates and describes the fine points of the sport in highlighting its history, terminology, two and four footed characters and betting percentages. Topical chapters on racing today, types and breeding of horses and those that were and are famous, the track, start and finish, jockeys, tipster sheets, cheating, picking winners, etc. Plenty of detail and anecdote necessary to appreciate classic and current turf records.
