More About This Title The Little Book of Horseracing


Do you know what the oldest horse race in Britain is, or when the first steeple case was held in Ireland? Fact-packed but light-hearted in style, this reliable reference book and quirky guide reveals such little-known facts, along with details of classic races, statistical records, famous riders, amusing anecdotes, and the general history of horse racing. This can be dipped into time and time again to reveal something new about this ancient game.


Anne Holland is a professional writer who has written many books and articles on horse racing, including Classic Horse Races, Grand National: The Irish at Aintree, and Horses for Courses. She has contributed to the Horse and Hound for the last thirty years, became the first woman to ride, and win, the National Hunt.
